Because of Jamaica’s high retail electricity prices, significant opportunity exists for DPV as an economic alternative. This paper reviews the effectiveness of Jamaica’s net billing pilot program, and identifies remaining challenges including a complex interconnection process, contractual ambiguity, and stakeholder equity concerns. The report provides several specific recommendations like shortening interconnection timelines, reducing caps on individual systems, and moving beyond a pilot phase. Many of these recommendations are applicable to other countries, particularly those with similarly high electricity rates.

Achieving clean energy goals may require new investments in transmission, especially if planners anticipate economic growth and increased demand for electricity. The renewable energy zone (REZ) transmission planning process can help policymakers ensure their infrastructure investments achieve national goals in the most economical manner. Policymakers, planners, and system operators around the world have used variations of the REZ process to chart the expansion of their transmission networks and overcome the barriers of traditional transmission planning. This guidebook seeks to help power system planners, key decision makers, and stakeholders understand and use the REZ process to integrate transmission expansion planning and renewable energy generation planning. The guidebook presents a general organizational structure and details each step of the REZ process.

This short report defines compensation mechanisms for grid-connected, behind-the-meter distributed generation (DG) systems as instruments that comprise three core elements: (1) metering & billing arrangements, (2) sell rate design, and (3) retail rate design. This report describes metering & billing arrangements, with some limited discussion of sell rate design. The report details the three possible arrangements for metering & billing of DG: net energy metering (NEM); buy all, sell all; and net billing.
