Workshop on Developing North-East Asia Green Power Corridor Modelling Scenarios

Background

ESCAP with support from the Korean Government is developing the Green Power Corridor Roadmap. A critical element of the Green Power Corridor Roadmap is the development of a common understanding of the potential technical, economic, and sustainability implications of cross-border power system integration coupled with the deployment of renewable energy and other low-carbon generation technologies. In this regard, ESCAP and the project partner the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) plan to model the implications of increased deployment of renewable energy and cross-border power system integration under a set of relevant scenarios. 

 

Objective of workshop

The objective of the workshop is to bring together relevant stakeholders from North-East Asia, as well as select experts from other parts of the world, to inform the development of the modelled Green Power Corridor scenarios. The tentative list of scenarios includes:

 

  • A baseline case using the latest available information (national plans and policies, generation and transmission cost estimates, etc) and unconditional NDCs
  • A Sustainable Development Scenario that will include conditional NDCs, net-zero emissions targets, full attainment of SDG7, and other elements as relevant.
  • A set of Connectivity cases, including a baseline case with only current transmission lines; a case that incorporates national, bilateral and trilateral plans; and a set of “high-connectivity” cases based on existing studies (e.g. Asian Super Grid, North-East Asian Power System Interconnection (NAPSI), North-East Asian Energy Interconnection (NEAEI)) and stakeholder input.

 

Expected outcomes of the workshop

 

The primary outcomes of this meeting will be a final list of Green Power Corridor scenarios to be modelled. In addition, participants will be asked to provide their views on and specific inputs into the relevant underlying assumptions
