As veterans in their fields of expertise, ICF consultants are trusted by our industry partners to deliver the insights they need, when they need them. This has resulted in strong relationships, enabling us to work together to devise strategies that help our clients make an impact on their customers—and on the world.

Part of ICF’s longstanding relationship with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is leading the Regional Development Mission for Asia’s (RDMA) Low Emissions Asian Development (LEAD) program. ICF conducted in-depth stakeholder and partner consultations to inform the design and launch of the Clean Energy Grid Integration Network (CEGIN)—which shares knowledge among policymakers, regulators, researchers, and industry professionals. ICF also helped to implement the first major CEGIN activity: a one-day, deep-dive training session at the 2015 Asia Clean Energy Forum in Manila, Philippines.

Founding partners of CEGIN are the Asia Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) Partnership, the LEDS Global Partnership, the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), and two initiatives of the Association of South East Asian Nations’ Clean Energy Ministerial: Clean Energy Solutions Center, and 21st Century Power Partnership. CEGIN also works in close collaboration with the U.S. Government’s Greening the Grid program.

In this in-depth technical analysis of South East Asian countries, ICF experts characterize power systems by:

  • Reviewing their current installed capacity, generation mix, demand/supply scenario and transmission infrastructure
  • Evaluating their energy policies/capacity addition plans with a view to determine the extent to which renewable energy would play a role in meeting future power requirements
  • Assessing their readiness to absorb planned renewable energy capacities into their power systems while maintaining grid stability and security
