On 22 February 2018 (9.30 AM - 1:00 PM SAST), Trade & Industrial Policy Strategies (TIPS) and the Green Economy Coalition (GEC) are hosting a Development Dialogue on the theme of Electricity Beyond the National Grid in Pretoria, South Africa.
Each of the last several years has seen a fresh record high in global carbon dioxide emissions, and scientists say if this trend continues the planet will suffer a catastrophic increase in temperature.
The objectives of the Vishnugad Pipalkoti Hydro Electric Project are: a) to increase the supply of electricity to India's national grid through the addition of renewable, low-carbon energy; and b) strengthen the institutional capacity of the borrower with respect to the preparation and implementa

As currently constituted, the price of electricity in today's markets does not accurately reflect the costs of electricity on the society and the environment. Adopting approaches suggested in this paper would allow policy makers and the public to make better informed decisions along the path towards fully sustainable electricity systems.
The Government of South Africa (GoSA) is making concerted efforts to transition its economy into a more energy efficient and less energy intensive one, including through the National Development Plan’s Vision 2030, the National Climate Change Response Policy and the Integrated Resource Plan.

In this paper, the authors provide evidence on how the provision of social infrastructure such as reliable electricity can be leveraged to increase taxation in developing countries, particularly Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).
This outlook from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) shows how policy and technological breakthroughs can advance the development of this key enabling technology for renewables. Through smart charging, EV batteries can help to integrate high shares of solar and wind power into existing grids, as battery storage capacity helps to even out the variability of these sources.

The uptake of renewable energy (RE) has been identified by a number of governments as a primary means for mitigating CO2 emissions from the electricity sector, and for making the transition to a low-carbon economy.
