The Grid-Scale Renewable Energy (GRE) Community of Practice is an initiative of the Asia LEDS Partnership in collaboration with the Energy Working Group of the LEDS Global Partnership that seeks to support and promote large scale renewable energy deployment in Asian countries.
The GRE Community of Practice is intended to be an interactive network comprised of national and subnational governments, regulators, system operators, technical institutions, businesses, non-profits and other international organizations addressing real-time policy, financing and technical challenges and solutions related to renewable energy deployment.
GRE Community of Practice is a platform for
- sustained engagement among countries for learning and technical collaboration
- continuous access to tools and expert assistance
- fostering champions that will serve as role models for other countries in the regions
The GRE Community of Practice is designed to be demand driven to meet members’ needs and will offer support and solutions to early movers as needs emerge.
Based on feedback from Asia LEDS Partnership members, the GRE Community of Practice will give initial priority to learning and technical collaboration on two topics:
Building Blocks for Grid Renewable Energy Development – Enabling holistic approaches for addressing needs for data and analysis, incentives and market design, competitive procurement, integrated power system generation and transmission, planning, financing, and technical grid integration solutions.
Renewable Energy Grid Integration – Supporting use of best practices and cost-effective approaches for grid management and operations, transmission and distribution infrastructure, storage, regional integration, demand response, and related solutions.
