Event description

Description

Pacific Island nations have ambitious targets for renewable energy penetration, and have been making significant recent progress towards these goals. There are, however, a number of technical and institutional challenges arising, both in serving remote dispersed off-grid end-users, and as variable renewable energy (VRE) penetration levels increase on what are often relatively small grids. A workshop will be held in conjunction with the Asia-Pacific Solar Energy Research Conference at UNSW Sydney, 4-6th December 2018. The aims of the workshop are to: • Discuss the challenges and opportunities of introducing more variable renewable energy into small grid and off grid contexts in the Pacific • Hear from a range of invited speakers regarding the status of VRE integration, key challenges and solutions to facilitate high penetration VRE in small grids and improved off grid energy service delivery • Identify potential future work to address key issues and themes arising in the discussion
