A three-day training programme was co-organized by IRENA, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia (UNESCAP), APCTT and the Technology Application Promotion Institute (TAPI), with support from the government of Japan and the Department of Science and Technology, Republic of Philippines. The objectives for the training programme were:
As part of this event, IRENA delivered the Global Atlas training module to energy planners and policy makers in Southeast Asia. This training, which is a corollary of prior editions in Egypt, Peru and Tanzania, focused on providing practical insight to the process of designing policy instruments with informed resource measurements and assessments. The training featured sessions where participants undertook a preliminary zoning exercise to identify potential high resource areas in their countries, using maps of solar and wind resources in the Global Atlas. Other context relevant data layers, such as protected areas, elevation, transmission network, and population density, were used to find favourable areas that combine promising resources with technical feasibility. The yields estimated from the physical resource (wind speeds/solar irradiation) for these favourable areas were then used to estimate the levelised cost of electricity (LCOE), which in turn formed the basis for proposals on possible policy pathways.
