South Asia Energy Series on Enhancing Grid Flexibility for a Clean Energy Transition Part II

Hosted on March 04, 2021 this South Asia Energy Series webinar was the second in a series co-organized by USAID's South Asia Regional Energy Hub (SAREH) and GTG-RISE initiative. The webinar focussed on “Battery Energy Storage Systems” (BESS) and its role in ‘Enhancing Grid Flexibility for a Clean Energy Transition’. During the session, USAID India’s GTG-RISE initiative showcased experience from the pilot projects in India. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) presented on the U.S. Department of State funded energy storage projects in South Asia especially on policy and regulatory environment assessment to help transform utility scale energy storage in South Asia.

Through our energy series, we promote knowledge exchange and learning on clean energy deployment. It is a key platform under the Asia EDGE initiative for USAID to coordinate and communicate all activities within South Asia. The United States Energy Association (USEA) is SAREH’s implementing partner.
