Transforming the power sector to clean and efficient systems requires expert capacity. A key area of activity includes convening multi-stakeholder knowledge exchanges, such as site visits, personnel secondments, moderated web forums, and information databases. The following exchanges will be tailored to support each of the Power Partnership's objectives:.
- Grid operator exchanges to examine and share information about national and subnational case studies of crosscutting electricity sector transformation (incorporating variable renewables, grid modernization, and efficiency)
- Multi-stakeholder regulatory exchanges to examine case studies of regulatory frameworks developed in response to challenging, crosscutting issues, including integrated regulatory frameworks for key utility sector issues and frameworks to collectively address important consumer issues
- Financial sector exchanges involving policy makers to examine and share information about critical success factors for promoting investment and innovation in grid modernization, efficiency, and clean energy generation
