100% of the total amount loan was withdrawn. All six sub-borrowers have fully utilized their sub-loans.

Tranche 2 has developed approximately an EPP equivalent to 40.4 MW, and provided energy savings of about 202,013 MWh/year and emissions reduction of total suspended particulates (TSP) of 676 tons/year (t/y), sulfur oxide of 1,818 t/y, nitrogen oxide of 404 t/y, and carbon dioxide of 157,500 t/y, which have already achieved more than the designed energy efficiency and emission reduction results.

Three workshops have been held, and public education program has been conducted at the Guangzhou Energy Conservation Exhibition yearly.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects The Project is classified as environmental category financial intermediary (FI), as all subprojects will only have insignificant environmental impacts, in accordance with the ADB's Environment Policy (2002) and Environmental Assessment Guidelines (2003). All six subprojects can meet the environmental criteria for subproject selection and will have only insignificant impacts. All subprojects can meet relevant national environmental laws and regulations. Implementation of the Project will improve energy security and environmental quality in Guangdong. Moreover, it will reduce coal consumption, free up resources, and lower the risks associated with coal mining and transportation.
Involuntary Resettlement The Project will not involve any land acquisition or resettlement.
Indigenous Peoples Since all subprojects are retrofit projects, the Project will not have any adverse social impacts, including on ethnic minorities.
