Wind Power: Accelerating Deployments in Emerging Wind Markets
Monday June 6, 9:00AM - 5:30PM
Organizers: ADB Quantum Leap in Wind
Contact: Pramod Jain
The Quantum Leap in Wind Power Development in Asia and the Pacific (QLW) deep dive workshop will focus on: How can emerging wind markets in Asia and the Pacific accelerate wind power development? The ambitious goals and commitments made in COP 21 will be translated into action in the coming years. Wind power provides the lowest cost clean energy technology, as evidenced by falling PPA prices and falling reverse auction prices for wind energy.
This workshop promises to bring, from around the world, wind power experts, senior government officials, senior utility officials, wind developers and financiers to share experiences, best practices and insights about wind power development. Presenters will discuss barriers, solutions to overcoming barriers and recommendations for changes to policies, tariffs, interconnection, permitting, land acquisition, financing and others. The workshop will share lessons, best practices and recommendations in order to accelerate wind development. All facets of wind project development will be covered: Prospecting, wind resource assessment, siting/engineering, turbine technology, financing, and others.
All participants signing up to Deep Dive Workshop events must be registered at ACEF 2016. Please select the events on June 6 and June 7 you wish to attend and for more details on each event, please contact the organizers direct.
