Workshop on Policies, Feed-in Tariff Frameworks and Best Practices for Grid Connected Solar PV Projects

Government and private sector representatives from the East Asia Summit countries (ASEAN + 8) will gather in Brunei Darussalam on 9 and 10 September 2013 to discuss and share experiences and lessons learned in implementing policies and regulatory frameworks to promote grid-connected solar PV projects as well as in undertaking specific project development.

The Energy Department at the Prime Minister’s Office (EDPMO) and the US Department of Energy (US DOE), in partnership with the Brunei National Energy Research Institute (BNERI) are organizing the Workshop on Policies, Feed-in Tariff Frameworks and Best Practices for Grid-Connected Solar PV Projects, as one of the first activities of the ‘Renewable and Alternative Power Generation’ workstream of the East Asia Summit Energy Cooperation Task Force (EAS ECTF). This new workstream, which covers 7 main work areas, was recently endorsed during the 18th Meeting of the EAS ECTF held in Bali, Indonesia last 27 June 2013.

This 2-day event is one on the activities under Work Area 1: Strengthening Policies to Scale-Up Investments whose objective is to provide a platform for sharing experiences, draw best practices, and provide policy recommendations to scale-up investments in RE power generation. The workshop results will serve as inputs to the best practice guidelines to be developed by workstream co-chairs and submitted to the EAS ECTF.

Leading companies and research institutions will present and discuss the state-of-the art solar PV technologies and smart grid systems. Policy makers, regulators and research institutions will share their experiences and lessons learned in implementing policies, support mechanisms and regulatory frameworks such as the feed-in tariff. The global experience shows that feed-in tariff schemes are effective in stimulating private sector investments for rapid deployment of renewable energies. Project developers, EPC contractors and solar PV technology suppliers will share their experiences in implementing projects in the EAS region.

Culminating the event will be the visit to the 1.2 MW Tenaga Suria Brunei (TSB) in Seria, which demonstrates and assesses performance of 6 different types of advanced PV modules, namely single-crystalline silicon, poly-crystalline silicon, microcrystalline-Si tandem, amorphous silicon, copper-indium-selenium (CIS) and heterojunction with intrinsic thin layer (HIT).

Invited workshop speakers are those from EAS countries that have introduced policies and regulatory frameworks and have successfully generated significant private sector investments on grid-connected solar PV projects. Invited participants are policy makers, utilities, government agencies, research and learning institutions, and the private sector from EAS countries.

This year in Thailand-what next?

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
