Regional: Energy for All Initiative

Sovereign Project | 40629-012

Summary

The purpose of the TA is to undertake pilot deminstration projects or financing modalities in 2 3 DMCs that are scalable, replicable, and will have the most significant long term impacts on increasing new access to electricity for the poor. The RETA will focus on models that involve the private sector, financial institutions, and community based organizations and will be based on studies that were done under ADB's previous work in renewable energy, energy efficiency, and greenhouse gas abatement, as well as other best practices in the region.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
Impact Improved economic, environmental, and health conditions of the poor in participating DMCs.
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome (1) Support participating DMCs to improve overall efficiency and effectiveness of their mechanisms for delivering access to energy. (2) Develop and demonstrate new approaches and methodologies for providing the poor with access to energy. (3) ADB's institutional capacity and technical capability to develop and implement projects for access to energy strengthened.
Progress Toward Outcome
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

Rural and urban poor have access to energy

Successful approaches that DMCs can pursue to scale up their efforts to provide energy access for the poor are developed and disseminated.

Capacity of the participating host countries, private sector, and financial institutions to design and implement energy access projects is increased.

Lessons learned from the demonstration projects are widely shared with other agencies

A system is established to support ADB operations departments to identify, plan, and implement energy access programs
