Enhancing NDCs: Opportunities in the Power Sector

This guidance identifies options to transform the power sector that should be prioritized in the 2020 NDCs. It also proposes a structure for policy makers to assess how these fundamental elements are addressed in their NDC and decide how they can fill gaps in the NDC 2020. It identifies four foundational policy interventions that policymakers need to consider and plan for upstream so as to design more robust and effective power-related NDCs. These include strategies for enhancing grid flexibility and addressing existing coal assets, necessary institutional and regulatory frameworks, and identifying points of intersection with the efficiency and electrification of other sectors, such as transport, industry, and buildings, as they have a direct impact on the power sector and vice versa.
