Smart Grid Transformation in the Power Distribution Sector
This project will identify the key issues and propose solutions to smart grid adoption on the power distribution side, which can allow for more variable RE in the network. It will present a financing framework and investment options that the Electric Cooperatives may consider for smart grid upgrading. Capacity building activities are integrated
accordingly to ensure the sustainability of the project outputs and that they can be replicated in future smart grid upgrades. Ultimately, this project aims to resolve key smart grid issues, which currently prohibit the uptake of RE.
