Video Implementing Renewable Energy Zones for Integrated Transmission and Generation Planning
In many countries, integrating significant renewable energy to the grid requires new transmission to access the best wind and solar resources and accommodate generation from large projects. The renewable energy zone (REZ) approach provides a policy framework for planning new transmission to encourage utility-scale renewable energy development in areas that have the highest likelihood of being cost-effective. This webinar introduced the REZ approach, including the value of REZ to a power system, crucial components of the REZ process, technical approach to defining REZs using geospatial analysis, and case studies to highlight examples and key lessons for implementing REZ in other parts of the world.

Video Transmission Planning for a High Renewable Energy Future: Lessons from the Texas Competitive Renewable Energy Zones Process
The webinar provided an overview of the Texas Competitive Renewable Energy Zones (CREZ) process, including the regulatory, procedural and technical considerations that were critical to its successful implementation in Texas. The webinar also introduced a Renewable Energy Zones “Toolkit” developed through a USAID and NREL partnership and intended to guide other power systems in adapting elements of the CREZ approach to their own power system planning processes.

File D source code Renewable Energy Zones: Delivering Clean Power to Meet Demand
The Renewable Energy Zone (REZ) is a concept that has emerged as a transmission planning tool to help scale up the penetration of solar, wind, and other resources on the power system. This document gives an overview to the critical steps necessary to implement a REZ process. These steps include: reviewing the regulatory environment on transmission planning; performing a resource assessment; screening the resources for potential for development; formalizing an input process for developers; performing an economic analysis for potential REZ areas; designating the REZs; and finally planning and commissioning transmission to the REZs.
