This analytical report presents strategies to connect renewable energy generating site to the grid. Connecting generating sites to the grid is an obstacle to the scale-up of renewable energy. Investments in transmission are often made in response to individual requests for interconnection from project developers. But isolated efforts to connect dispersed resources usually turn out to be more expensive than if the full set of planned sites had been considered up front. Only proactive planning, undertaken with a view to maximizing the efficiency of the overall network, can keep costs and connection delays to a minimum.
