USAID – Addressing the Social Impact of Renewable Energy Auctions

Policymakers are accelerating the transition to a low-carbon economy with renewable energy auctions, which can also reap social and economic benefits. However, if authorities and auction bidders fail to engage local communities or understand the social impact of renewable energy projects, it can lead to harmful outcomes for the communities and financial losses for the developers.

Join USAID’s Scaling Up Renewable Energy program for a webinar that examines how auction design and a supportive policy framework can mitigate adverse impacts and enhance the beneficial social impacts of awarded renewable energy projects.
