This study aims to guide power system planning processes and regulatory actions, and particular consideration is given to ramping up solar and wind power over the next few years. The report has two main aims: (1) identify useful regulatory practices in an era of rapidly improving renewable energy technologies, drawing insights primarily from U.S. and South African IRP processes and (2) encourage more effective power system planning in areas of both single and multiple jurisdiction.
