Wind Resource Assessment Capacity Building Session

Wind energy is one of the more technologically mature forms of renewable energy that Caribbean stakeholders are seeking to deploy as the region transitions to sustainable energy. However, it is almost entirely dependent on location, and the output of a wind farm is highly sensitive to the nature of the resource. How are wind energy resources assessed, and what critical factors should project developers and planners consider? What effects will climate change have on wind project development? The CCREEE hosted a capacity building session on Wind Resource Assessment, to address these questions and more. The session covered the following modules:...

Where Sun Meets Water : Floating Solar Handbook for Practitioners

Floating solar photovoltaic (FPV) technology is considered commercially viable, given the number of largescale projects that have been implemented. Challenges to its deployment remain, however, including the lack of a robust track record; uncertainty about costs; uncertainty about the environmental impact; and the technical complexity of designing, building, and operating on and in water (especially electrical safety, anchoring and mooring issues, and operation and maintenance). This handbook provides developers, utilities, contractors, investors, regulators, and decision makers with practical guidelines on FPV projects. Most of the handbook focuses on technical aspects relating to developing and operating FPV projects; some sections focus...

Warranties for Battery Energy Storage Systems in Developing Countries

In developing countries, battery storage is becoming a viable way to increase system flexibility and enable more integration of variable renewable energy. Battery energy storage systems (BESS) respond rapidly to control signals, are easy to deploy, and are benefiting from cost reduction trends. New battery technologies have valuable attributes that are well suited to the needs of developing countries. However, they have a rather short track record in terms of deployment and operation, and this can hamper efforts to reassure buyers and investors that these new technologies will perform reliably over their project life. Conditions found in some developing countries...

Using the Hydropower Sustainability Tools in World Bank Group Client Countries : Lessons Learned and Recommendations

The Hydropower Sustainability Tools (HSTs) are a suite of assessment tools and guidance documents developed by a multi-stakeholder forum, aimed at driving continuous improvement in hydropower development and operations. They are useful beyond their original purpose as audit tools and can be used in World Bank Group (WBG) client countries to build capacity for sustainable hydropower. The environmental, social, and governance topics addressed by the HSTs are deliberately aligned with WBG frameworks, which provides opportunities for the tools to be used as complements to World Bank Group standards, including to help clients meet WBG requirements and support WBG staff in...

Turbines of the Caribbean - Decarbonising Suriname's electricity mix through hydro-supported integration of wind power

This journal article explores the potential for increasing the share of renewables in Suriname’s electricity mix, with a special focus on the complementary role of existing hydropower and future wind power infrastructure. The article demonstrates that wind and hydro resources have great synergetic potential for displacing fossil fuel-based power generation.. The results presented in the article have relevance for climate policy in various Caribbean countries and other island states with existing hydropower infrastructure and substantial wind/solar power potential, for which this study fills an important literature gap.

Tracking SDG 7 : The Energy Progress Report 2019 : Main Report

The Global Energy Progress Report 2019 provides a global dashboard on progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7), which sets 2030 targets for reaching universal access to electricity and clean fuels and technologies for cooking, substantially increasing the share of renewable energy in the global mix, and doubling the rate of improvement of energy efficiency. All the data used in this pamphlet comes from the respective official source: for electrification, the World Bank; for clean fuels and technologies for cooking, the World Health Organization (WHO); for renewable energy, the International Energy Agency (IEA), the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) and...
