The rapid growth of renewable energy, especially variable sources such as solar and wind power, can lead to significant integration challenges for existing power systems in Asia. This Deep Dive Workshop organized by NREL, GIZ, USAID, and the Clean Energy Ministerial will present and discuss actions that can be undertaken by governments and grid operators at an early stage and without excessive financial commitments to provide more operational flexibility to the power system. 


  1. To make participants aware of the commonly underestimated potential for integrating VRE into existing power systems
  2. To inform participants about possible early actions to initiate the process of allowing their respective power sectors to accommodate more VRE sources.
  3. To facilitate the dissemination of lessons learned from the US and Germany, as well as selected Asian countries on challenges, solutions, and early actions with regards to integration of VRE sources.
