When planning mini-grids, developers often overlook the potential arrival of the grid. The arrival of the grid can threaten the operation of mini-grids and effectively developers’ business model. To avoid stranded assets, we will explore the different models put in place in Cambodia, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia that can help safeguard mini-grids against future risk with the arrival of the main grid.
In this webinar, Dr Chris Greacen will provide five models/options for the operation of mini-grids to adapt to the arrival of the main grid.
