Webinar: Building Blocks for Distributed PV Deployment, Part 1: Goals, Definitions and Compensation

A new webinar titled “Building Blocks for Distributed PV Deployment, Part 1: Goals, Definitions and Compensation” has been published. Due in part to the low cost of photovoltaic system hardware and scalability for deployment, grid-connected distributed photovoltaic (DPV) technologies are increasingly permeating global power markets. While this trend could help substantially reduce the carbon footprint of global power generation, empower citizens across the socio-economic spectrum, and expand local PV markets, there are a number of technical and policy issues—especially in countries that have limited technical resources and need to “get things right” the first time.

The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with USAID Distributed PV Program and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, hosted a no-cost webinar that explores the "building blocks" of establishing a distributed PV program, which include:

  • Setting a distributed PV vision, goals, and roles and responsibilities
  • Defining distributed generation
  • Establishing a compensation mechanism
  • Creating interconnection processes, standards, and codes
  • Providing public policy support as needed.

This webinar is Part 1 in a two-part series. It explores building blocks 1, 2, and 3. A second webinar explores building blocks 4 and 5.
