21st Century Power Partnership
As the joint operating agent, JISEA and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory lead the 21st Century Power Partnership (21CPP)—a multilateral initiative of the Clean Energy Ministerial to transform power systems around the world. As a platform for public-private collaboration, 21CPP advances integrated solutions for large-scale renewable energy deployment along with energy efficiency and grid modernization.
To support collaboration, 21CPP engages in research and technical assistance activities to accelerate policy and regulatory strategies. Its current activities and projects extend to Mexico, South Africa, and India.

The Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) sponsors the 21st Century Power Partnership in Mexico.
With a focus on positive outcomes for all participants, 21CPP provides technical support to enable the Government of Mexico to coordinate, accelerate, and institutionalize the development of clean energy systems in Mexico.
21CPP Mexico fosters networks of experts to accelerate next-generation power system planning for 2030; provides operational support for grid integration; evaluates and expands smart grid deployment; and assists the government of Mexico with the implementation of its energy reform directives.

21CPP supports the transformation of South Africa's power system by accelerating the transition to a reliable, financially robust, and low-carbon power system. It assists South Africa with power system expert workforce development and near-term power supply shortage mitigation.
It works in partnership with the South African Department of Energy, National Energy Regulator of South Africa, South African National Energy Development Institute, Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, and Eskom.
In India, 21CPP seeks to enable a smarter, cleaner, more resilient power system through three focus areas: contributing to the development of the national Renewable Energy Roadmap, sharing experiences and lessons learned, and providing power system modeling support and training.
It works in partnership with the Indian Ministry of Power, U.S. Department of Energy, Power Grid Corporation of India, and Power System Operation Corporation.
