  • A case study in Bali, Indonesia features the use of a GIS-based decision support system as a potential tool to support rapid deployment of renewable energy technologies. The Asia and Pacific region is blessed with abundant renewable energy resources. Ironically, 420 million of its people still have no access to electricity, which makes tapping renewable energy an urgent necessity. The GIS-based decision support system (DSS) is a tool designed to help quantify renewable energy sources in a geographical area. Using Bali, Indonesia as case study, the tool estimates the technical potential and creates the right mix of renewable energy (solar, wind, biomass, hydropower, and geothermal) to meet Bali’s specific energy needs. Find out more about this GIS-based system and its potential as a practical tool to support the region’s rapid deployment of renewable energy technologies.

  • The Status of Power System Transformation 2017 report provides an overview of current trends that are ongoing across the globe, with a focus on the integration of renewables and local grid development. The report examines a broad set of recent concrete power system interventions. A framework for assessing the status of power system transformation is also introduced, and is applied to selected countries: Indonesia, South Africa, Mexico and Australia. This report can inform stakeholders of the dynamic changes that are occurring in power systems around the world and provide insight into measures that can help to overcome new challenges.
