The USAID and NREL Partnership hosted a modeling group from the Philippines at NREL's campus for a month-long research exchange supporting the Philippines' development of competitive renewable energy zones (CREZ). By working directly with NREL's power sector experts, the group, composed of partners from the Philippines Department of Energy (PDOE) and National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP), refined key models used to enable proactive transmission planning for scaling up renewable energy and better utilizing the Philippines' indigenous renewable energy resources.
Hanzel Cubangbang, of the NGCP, presents details about the transmission planning model to a group of NREL and USAID team members in a collaboration session. Read more about the exchange at: http://bit.ly/2m5yq9e. Photo taken by Werner Slocum. July 30, 2019
