The Asia LEDS Partnership is pleased to announce the launch of the Clean Energy Grid Integration Network (CEGIN) for policy makers. Many developing countries are endorsing high targets for renewable energy (RE), but accommodating significant quantities of variable RE, such as wind and solar, will require changes to how power systems are planned and operated. The Clean Energy Grid Integration Network (CEGIN) will help governments around the world strengthen policies and programs to enable high levels of renewable energy generation for electricity systems along with related demand response, smart grid, and storage solutions.
This network is a partnership of the Clean Energy Solutions Center, 21st Century Power Partnership (21CPP), Low Emission Development Strategies Global Partnership (LEDS GP) and Asia LEDS Partnership, and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
In striving to support developing countries and emerging economies, CEGIN will provide the following resources and services:
• Technical resources on policy good practices for enabling grid integration
• Expert technical assistance
• Training and knowledge exchange
• Regional and global networks, including an Asian network that will be launched in June.
CEGIN is co-leading a one-day grid integration training event on June 16th as part of the upcoming Asia Clean Energy Forum 2015 in Manila, Philippines. The session focuses on renewable energy grid integration issues, enabling policies, and finance measures. The training will build awareness of solutions and best practices for RE grid integration as well as present enabling resources.
