The workshop (organised by Alternative Energy Promotion Center (AEPC) of Nepal and the Asian Development Bank (ADB)) will review the success factors of mini grid projects within and outside Asia and the Pacific, and share knowledge on the development of viable models that can be deployed at scale to address some key barriers of community systems.

The workshop will share best practices of the most promising models for scaling up Mini Grid systems in selected developing member countries (DMCs). Workshop will showcase how Mini Grid barriers can be addressed and offer a way forward for deploying successful models at scale.
