Mini-grid webinar series: Grid interconnection of micro/mini hydro mini-grids: What happens when the national grid arrives?

This is the second in a series of three webinars on mini-grids organized by Energypedia UG, partner of ALER, and will present examples from Indonesia and Sri Lanka where micro and mini hydropower (MHP) systems have been successfully connected to the national grid and even benefited the local community. Country experts will describe how micro and mini hydropower developed in their country and what happened when the grid arrived. They will also explain the current conditions for grid interconnection (e.g. feed-in tariff, technical requirements and economic aspects) as well as the consequential opportunities and challenges for MHP owners.


When: 1 June at 2:00 p.m. CEST (check your local time)
