Solutions Center Report Reviews International Experiences in Wheeling and Banking Strategies

Report offers insights for regulators and policy makers working to achieve renewable energy goals

The Clean Energy Regulators Initiative (CERI) has released a new report, Wheeling and Banking Strategies for Optimal Renewable Energy Deployment: International Experiences. CERI is a partnership between two Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) initiatives, the Clean Energy Solutions Center and 21st Century Power Partnership, and Leonardo Energy. As variable renewable generation increases worldwide, policy makers and regulators are adopting new or revised wheeling and banking policies that could effectively support renewable development. The report defines the principles of wheeling (transmission) tariffs and renewable energy banking provisions and their role in renewable energy deployment in countries with plans for large-scale renewable energy.
