Capacity building courses for energy regulators in North-East Asia
The training focuses on regulatory harmonisation and sharing of best practices, it consists of two modules: “Renewables integration and its impacts on electricity markets” (Module 1) and “Regulatory governance of power systems” (Module 2). Each module contains a combination of self-paced learnings and a pre-recorded live session. The training is part of a series of capacity building efforts being organised across the region . The course was organized for the countries of North-East Asia, however it could be relevant for regulators outside the subregion.

Energy connectivity in the Pacific : planning tools for integrating renewable energy into island grids
This course is designed for Pacific Island policy makers, renewable energy service providers and grid utility operators. It provides an introduction in the use of two tools. The first is a planning tool to conduct techno-economic assessments of island specific energy systems to determine options for integrating hybrid renewable energy installations into island grids. The second is a tool for conducting multi-criteria assessment (integrating technical, economic, social and environmental criteria) to help determine optimal pathways for installing and integrating renewable energy systems into existing grid systems. At the end of this course, participants will gain an awareness of methodologies for energy planning that integrate social, economic and environmental conditions.

Energy connectivity in the Pacific : the potential role of low and zero carbon fuels, including hydrogen, in regional energy trade
The course supports policy makers in the Pacific Islands and territories to explore the role of low and zero-carbon fuels including “green fuels” (like hydrogen, ammonia and others) in regional energy trade for enhancing energy security and decarbonization pathways. This training introduces how to use a cost-benefit analysis framework for policy evaluation for policy makers keen to explore the impacts of prospective projects, policy decisions and “green fuel” project investments. At the end of this course, participants will gain an awareness of a systematic method to evaluate different policy options for the “green fuels” transition.
