Webinar on Energy Access Planning
IET – International Energy Transition GmbH offered a webinar on energy access planning in the light of the SE4All targets. This webinar addressed critical points in decision-making for planning electrification strategies. Important parameters discussed include the use of geographic information systems (GIS) for renewable energy resource assessments, load density, cost of grid expansion, cost of distributed generation technologies and the willingness to pay in rural communities. Decision makers will learn when to opt for grid expansion and when to choose off-grid solutions, namely solar home systems and hybrid mini-grids. The webinar was hosted by the Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with the Club of National Agencies and Structures in charge of Rural Electrification (CLUB-ER).
