Brief preview of the upcoming publication Large-Scale Electricity Interconnection: Technology and Prospects for Cross-regional Power Networks, to be launched in April 2017.  

Large-Scale Electricity Interconnection: Technology and Prospects for Cross-regional Power Networks, to be launched in April 2017, aims to deliver policy recommendations for power sector interconnection consistent with an integrated vision for future power systems, from end use to distribution and transmission. In keeping with International Energy Agency (IEA) scenarios, the publication will assess the short- and medium-term technical, market, regulatory and policy measures, benefits, costs and investments required to accelerate regional interconnection.

As the publication is centred around regional opportunities for interconnection, the IEA is partnering with State Grid Corporation of China, Global Energy Interconnection Development and Cooperation Organization (GEIDCO), Nordic Energy Research, the Commission for Regional Energy Integration (CIER), and the Inter-American Development Bank to provide a world-spanning analysis of technological prospects for interconnection, the current levels of deployment and mid-term investment potential, and the market and regulatory frameworks necessary for linking national power systems at much higher scales..
