Wind Energy Project Development and Renewable Energy Procurement Webinar Series
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) helps developing countries implement clean energy solutions efficiently and effectively through various programs. USAID collaborates with host country governments to develop efficient, competitive and transparent policies and systems for power procurement, strengthens institutions by building technical capacity to integrate renewable energy into the grid and promotes private sector engagement in producing affordable renewable electricity.
In Bangladesh, USAID is helping adoption of renewable energy through two projects: the Bangladesh Wind Power Capacity Building project implemented by the US Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), and the Scaling Up Renewable Energy (SURE) project implemented by Tetra Tech.
A series of four webinars has been developed under these programs focused on two themes: wind energy project development and renewable energy procurement. The Wind Energy Project Development webinars will provide a primer on the wind project development process, including a market and technology overview, importance of data-driven decision making, and a tutorial on RE Data Explorer, a geospatial tool that supports renewable energy investment and deployment decisions. The Renewable Energy Procurement webinars will provide a comprehensive overview of the renewable energy procurement process with a deep dive into solar and wind energy procurements and equip participants with the knowledge of state-of-the-art clean energy technologies and solutions and international best practices.
These webinars will be conducted on August 11-12, and August 18-19, 2020 at 8 PM Dhaka time.
