Overview
This grant will support the Project to develop, deploy, and socialize an open source electricity planning and production cost modeling tool to be used in India by civil society, utilities, and regulators. This tool will help facilitate the integration of renewable energy, while identifying pathways to reduce costs through more efficient utilization of the existing system. This will become increasingly important as India expands its grid and deploys more electric vehicles.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
This one-time grant is to support collaborative work underway by the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) between the United State's Federal Regulatory Commission (FERC) and China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) on issues related to integrating renewable energy resources into the electric power grid, environmental and economic dispatch of electric generation and energy price setting, energy markets and reliability matters.
for technical assistance to states for 111D  
In the US, the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) works behind the scenes with regulatory agencies to provide technical advice and training with an eye toward the ultimate goal of de-carbonizing the US electricity sector. This grant would allow them to build tools and provide training for regulators in target states to ensure that energy efficiency programs are tracked in ways that allow accurate accounting of their associated global warming emission reductions. RAP will work with these states and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure that best practices are used to incorporate energy efficiency measures into the set of flexible policies that "count" toward meeting the new EPA carbon standard for existing power plants. A draft standard is expected to be released in June, 2014.
