During Project Design

The NDRC and the Ministry of Finance have expressed strong support to the proposed Project. An ADB mission visited Shandong in late February 2008 to collect basic information and conduct preliminary consultations with provincial government agencies, industrial enterprises, financial institutions, energy service companies, and local consulting firms. An international study tour on energy conservation to Japan and the Republic of Korea was jointly organized by ADB and NDRC in March 2008 and included participants from Shandong, resulting in building up business relations with Japanese and Korean partners who could extend assistance in both EE project development and capacity building (such as knowledge sharing and training). A Memorandum of Understanding was signed with the China Development Bank for potential joint financing of EE projects in Shandong.

An initial poverty and social assessment will be conducted during the PPTA Fact-Finding mission to flag poverty and social dimensions aspects. The lessons learned from the TA and the Project will be widely disseminated to similar enterprises in energy-intensive industries in Shandong and other provinces.

During Project Implementation

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

The PPTA will be carried out by a team of consultants with excellent knowledge and professional networks on energy efficiency and emission reduction in the PRC, as well as expertise and experience in (i) institutional, economic, technical, financial, and environmental analyses; (ii) impact evaluation and monitoring; and (iii) enhancement of local institutional capacities. The Government considers a larger role of national experts in the implementation of the PPTA to enable replication of the investment model that is suitable for a large number but relatively small energy-efficiency and emission reduction subprojects.

The estimated allocation of consulting services will be:

(i) a combined total of 6 person-months for 2 international consultants (energy efficiency and emission reduction experts), (ii) a combined total of 40 person-months for 8 national consultants (4 energy efficiency and emission reduction experts, 2 financial management specialists, 1 energy service company (ESCO) specialist, and 1 institutional capacity building specialist).
