Regional: Promoting Sustainable Energy for All in Asia and the Pacific (Cluster TA)

Sovereign (Public) Project | 48435-001 Status: Active

The cluster TA aims to address energy poverty in Asia and the Pacific consistent with ADB's energy policy , i.e., maximizing access to energy for all, and underscores ADB's stated support for making clean energy infrastructure more inclusive. The cluster approach is proposed for a more integrated response to energy poverty and energy security, addressing technological, institutional, and operational concerns to achieve Sustainable Energy for All by 2030.

The cluster TA consists of the following four subprojects:

Subproject A: Renewable Energy Mini-Grids and Distributed Power Generation

Subproject B: Energy Access for the Urban Poor

Subproject C: Sustainable Energy for All Regional Hub for Asia and the Pacific

Subproject D: Project Development and Investment Facilitation

Description

The cluster TA aims to address energy poverty in Asia and the Pacific consistent with ADB's energy policy , i.e., maximizing access to energy for all, and underscores ADB's stated support for making clean energy infrastructure more inclusive. The cluster approach is proposed for a more integrated response to energy poverty and energy security, addressing technological, institutional, and operational concerns to achieve Sustainable Energy for All by 2030.

The cluster TA consists of the following four subprojects:

Subproject B: Energy Access for the Urban Poor

Subproject C: Sustainable Energy for All Regional Hub for Asia and the Pacific

Subproject D: Project Development and Investment Facilitation

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The cluster regional capacity building technical assistance (TA) aims to address energy poverty in Asia and the Pacific. In the course of implementing the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) Energy for All and Clean Energy programs, ADB has conducted extensive consultations on scaling up access to energy, renewable energy and energy efficiency with a wide range of stakeholders representing governments, civil society organizations (CSOs), private sector, financial institutions, and development partners. ADB as the leading partner and host of the Asia-Pacific Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) hub supports the SE4ALL Initiative (i) ensure universal access to modern energy services; (ii) double the annual global rate of improvement in energy efficiency; and (iii) double the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix, all by 2030.

Consulting Services

The TA will mainly finance consulting services, pilots, and other capacity building

activities. The TA will require 344 person-months of international and 520 person-months of

national consulting services in the areas of investments, project development, sustainable

energy, energy policy, and communications. Individual consultants will be engaged to be flexible

and timely fielded. Some international and national consultants will be engaged in long-term

support roles. For some activities that are best packaged and managed independently of the

core team, consultancy firms may be engaged using consultant quality-based selection and

quality- and cost-based selection.

Procurement

Engagement of experts will follow ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as

amended from time to time). Partnership with centers of excellence will be promoted. All

procurement under the TA will be carried out in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines

(2015, as amended from time to time). The disposal of all equipment procured under the TA will

follow ADB disposal procedures. Output-based or lump sum contracts will be considered as

appropriate where possible to reduce administrative burden and improve efficiency and

economy. Disbursements under the TA will be performed in accordance with ADB's Technical

Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time).
