Mini-Grids Webinar Series
Renewable mini grids are one of the widely discussed options for providing energy to those areas where the energy demand is not met or where the grid-extension is not a cost effective solution. However, in the general mini-grid dialogue, micro/mini hydropower often does not play an important role despite its huge potential in South and Southeast Asian countries. Many of these micro/mini hydropower systems are either based on “productive end use” as enhanced water mills (e.g. Afghanistan) or are successfully developed from hydro mini grids to grid-connected systems (e.g. Indonesia, Sri Lanka). As a proven technology with a long track record, micro/mini hydropower is in the focus of this webinar series, but still with a view at other technologies to analyze similarities and differences. read more
This webinar series will focus on the three highly relevant key topics: grid interconnection, productive end use of electricity (PUE) and the distinction between different types of mini-grid technologies.
The main objectives of this webinar series are:
- to get relevant information from practitioners and other experts in the above mentioned key topics (mainly based on case studies)
- to create awareness on up-to-date developments, barriers and opportunities
- strengthen the “Renewables-community” by supporting a fruitful exchange on differences and commonalities of mini-grids based on different resources
