Event Description

Power reforms which aim to introduce more competition can foster the development of small-scale generation and open access for small-scale renewable generators (e.g. to distribution networks). But power reform is not enough to open the market to RET operators and needs to be complemented by explicit, long-term, stable and consistent RET policies and regulation. After numerous RET pilot projects launched in the 1980s and 1990s, there seems to now be quite a wide consensus on what needs to be done to lead to the massive diffusion of RET.

The large-scale diffusion of on-grid RET in a country is facilitated by the appropriate institutions and policies/legislation. An accurate assessment of the resources, a stable regulatory framework, transparent planning procedures and clear rules of connection to the grid are needed to reduce risk for investors and upscale RET.

This event will present state-of the art of tools that exist for implementing RET; it will deal on how it is possible to assess the resource today with simulation tools and costs of RET; It will present lessons that can be taken to diffuse RET at very large scale. It will focus particularly on the implementation of one of the most successful mechanisms existing to support on-grid RET: the feed-in tariff.
