Fact Sheets: Greening the Grid

13 July 2017
Greening the Grid offers a toolkit of information and guidance materials to support developing countries in defining and implementing grid-integration road maps.

Toolkit resources provide 1) concise and comprehensive overviews of emerging practices for addressing grid-integration challenges through policy, market, and regulatory mechanisms and 2) guidance on applying these mechanisms to develop robust grid-integration road maps.

Drawing on this toolkit, Greening the Grid also facilitates direct technical assistance tailored to the unique power system characteristics and priorities in each partner country. Some examples of technical collaboration opportunities include:

  • Expert exchange on developing scenarios for large-scale wind and solar generation
  • Development or technical review of grid codes
  • Training on the use of grid capacity expansion models and the data needed to support these models
  • Partnering to develop grid integration road maps.                 

Greening the Grid is supported by the U.S. Government’s Enhancing Capacity for Low Emission Development Strategies (EC-LEDS) program, which is managed by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and Department of State with support from the U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Forest Service.
