Many countries have long underinvested in transmission and distribution infrastructure, which amplifies losses and undermines reliability. Rapidly changing technologies are creating new opportunities for using the latest solutions, but these depend greatly on cost and context.
Despite technological advances, modern economies still need a functional electricity grid. Increasing use of intermittent sources of generation, like utility-scale wind and solar, require flexible and responsive energy systems.
Using the best available data and research, the Hub aims to help decision makers understand the technological options as an input to important infrastructure choices that will have decades-long effects.
