Webinar on “Hybrid Renewable Power Plants: Opportunities and Challenges”

SAARC Energy Centre, Islamabad has succesfully organized a Webinar on “Hybrid Renewable Power Plants: Opportunities and Challenges” on Tuesday, 16th April, 2019 from 1100 – 1330 PKT (Pakistan Standard Time).

A hybrid renewable power plant employs multiple RE technologies in same vicinity. Such power generating options may offer multiple benefits in form of better grid integration and less land requirements. Nevertheless, it comes with tradeoffs of limited resource utilization or difficulties in joint operation. This webinar investigated all such matters. The webinar featured 15-20 minutes presentations by field experts from ADB, Siemens LLC, PWC India, AEDB Pakistan and Sapphire Wind Pakistan. Following were the major aspects  covered in the webinar:

  1. Economics of hybrid RE power plants
  2. Operational and design challenges
  3. Contemporary solutions for combined operation of multiple RE assets
  4. System level benefits of solar-wind hybrid power plants
  5. Best regulatory, fiscal and policy tools for promotion of hybrid RE concept
  6. Case studies
