nrel intl cem cesc resource adequacy webinar

Decarbonization of the power sector is instrumental to reducing emissions worldwide. Following the 13th Clean Energy Ministerial conference (CEM13) in 2022, several governments signaled their intention to develop power sector decarbonization action plans.

The 21st Century Power Partnership (21CPP), in coordination with all Clean Energy Ministerial power workstreams and collaborators, is providing technical support on critical focus areas as these countries prepare their action plans. Countries will present the action plans at the upcoming CEM14 in India.

Brought to you by the Clean Energy Solutions Center and 21CPP, this webinar will focus on resource adequacy and grid flexibility, key themes in the CEM14 action plans and critical topics for integrating variable renewable energy into the grid while ensuring system reliability. Global energy experts will discuss how grid planners can ensure stable supply while rapidly decarbonizing the power system and how various policies can increase the power grid’s flexibility. The session will end with a Q&A with the audience.

Speakers include:
Rob Horner, U.S. Department of Energy, Clean Energy Solutions Center
Jeff Logan, National Renewable Energy Laboratory
Gord Stephen, National Renewable Energy Laboratory
Mr. Priyam Jain, GRID-INDIA

This webinar will be moderated by Dr. Doug Arent, National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
