Communicate & Promote Findings to Broader Audiences

Your grid integration study can change the conversation on renewable energy in your power system, broadening stakeholders’ and decision makers’ perspective about and confidence in what is possible.

After finalizing and discussing your study’s results with crucial stakeholders, consider sharing them with a broader audience. Sharing the results of your study publicly is not required, but it can help reinforce stakeholder buy-in and build support for ambitious renewable energy goals.

What You Need to Know

  • Effective publicity can create opportunities to identify and address remaining concerns from decision makers, industry or civil society.
  • There are any number of ways to get the word out, from events and workshops, to journal publications and press, to direct outreach and social media. Think about who you’d like to reach, and what they pay attention to.

First, Look at this Great Example for a Grid Integration Study in India

This is a great example of how to communicate the results of your grid integration study to a broader audience. This publicly available website includes a detailed description of the grid integration study conducted in India through the Greening the Grid program. The study confirmed the technical and economic viability of integrating 175 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy into India's electricity grid by 2022.

Another way to highlight the results of a study is through a publicly available report. In this example, the Philippines Department of Energy released the key findings of their grid integration study, conducted in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

Next, Look At This Report For a Grid Integration Study In Thailand

The International Energy Agency (IEA) partnered with the Ministry of Energy in Thailand, as well as other key power sector stakeholders including regulatory agencies, power system operators, and academia, to perform a detailed technical and economic analysis of grid integration challenges and mitigation options.

The Australian National Electricity Market Operator (AEMO) released a Renewable Integration Study (RIS) outlining actions that can help achieve high levels of renewable energy safely and reliably.

Suggested Actions & Next Steps

  • Talk to the TRC, MWG, and study sponsors about whether and how to share the results of the study publicly. Ask their advice on how to share it, and whether they can help.
  • Draft and execute a communications plan for sharing the study’s results.
