Asia Super Grid

Connecting Renewables to the Global Energy Grid

Since its establishment in 2011, Renewable Energy Institute promotes the Asia Super Grid (ASG) initiative. The ASG maximizes the use of rich natural renewable energy resources from each region to deliver safe and inexpensive electricity. Also, as the Paris Agreement enters the implementation stage and the transition to a decarbonized society is urgently needed, the development of an international power grid has become an even more important opportunity in achieving "100% renewable energy."

About "Asia Super Grid (ASG)"

"Asia Super Grid" initiative aims at interconnecting electric power systems of Asian countries, enabling mutual benefits by exchanging abundant natural renewable energy resources, such as wind, solar and hydropower.

Since its foundation in 2011, Renewable Energy Institute has worked to establish Asia Super Grid. The history of international power grids in Europe and North America goes back some 100 years. Transmission lines were connected across national borders for efficient and economic use of energy resources. In recent years, with greater deployment of renewables, international grid interconnection projects are being implemented even more actively.

In contrast, in North East Asia, very limited interconnections have been realized between China, Mongolia, Russia and other neighboring countries.

With the Paris Agreement serving as an initiative towards transitioning to carbon-free societies in the latter half of the 21st century, as well as growing demand for realizing 100% renewable energy, development of global energy interconnections have become an even more important challenge to address.

Renewable Energy Institute will continue to work with companies, government agencies and NGOs in Japan and the world for the realization of Asia Super Grid.
