Description The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will prepare energy system development scenarios and technology road maps and support the scale-up of innovative energy technologies in developing member countries (DMCs). The TA is aligned with the energy policy of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). It will support ADB in implementing its Strategy 2030 and DMCs in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) as part of the Paris Agreement on climate change.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Innovative technologies and business models are needed by DMCs to facilitate and speed up transitions, and infrastructure investments must be future-proofed regarding rapid technological evolution and climate change. However, many DMCs have limited knowledge or experience in determining the benefits and risks associated with innovative energy technologies and business models; therefore, they often default to conventional carbon intensive approaches. DMCs may be reluctant to embrace cutting-edge technologies given the lack of understanding of the benefits and risks of using them, as well as perceived higher costs.

To mobilize and accelerate investment at the scale necessary to address the SDGs and NDCs, ADB needs to deliver innovative technical and financial assistance that can improve the bankability of infrastructure projects, especially in the energy sector. Pilot projects are often needed to demonstrate in-country technology viability, and dissemination of the knowledge gained through these pilots by connecting Asian countries with knowledge developed in Asia and the Pacific is important along with global knowledge transfer.

Impact Access to reliable, low-carbon, and cost-effective energy increased

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

Status of Implementation Progress

The TA subproject aims to support the development and dissemination of energy system projections and technology road maps that demonstrate sustainable energy system development pathways for specific cities, countries, or subregions in consideration of their NDCs. The analytical approach will use national and global data along with modelling to develop scenarios. National and regional workshops will be used to seek inputs to develop scenario narratives and high-level technology road maps disseminated through digital publications.

The TA also aims to provide support to ADB's regional departments and the Private Sector Operations Department to develop feasibility studies for high-level energy technologies, focusing on costs, environmental and public health benefits to consumers, carbon footprint, sustainability and deployment considerations, and scalability and future investment potential specific to supporting ADB's pipeline. Feasibility studies will contribute to the development of ADB lending projects when deemed appropriate.

The TA includes capacity building and knowledge sharing (especially supporting experience transfer and connectivity across Asia and the Pacific) to ensure that the knowledge developed, and the applicable high-level technologies identified (including new and existing technologies not well known across the region) can be shared throughout Asia and the Pacific to promote sustainable innovative technology transfer and deployment. National and regional workshops will be held as platforms to facilitate activities and enhance capacity and knowledge of subject matter experts, ADB staff, academia and private sector technology providers, as appropriate. Further, the TA will cover implementation of pilot projects (including but not limited to renewable energy-based micro grids and energy storage systems, technological innovations in heat and cooling pump, and e-mobility solutions), along with performing practical analysis to identify and match country specific energy needs with innovative sustainable energy technology, and dissemination of the knowledge gained through these activities.

Completed/Ongoing Activities:

Knowledge sharing is a major component supported by the TA. The TA supported the Workshop on Promoting Electric Mobility, held in Indonesia on 18 February 2019. ADB has received a preliminary proposal from Indonesia's largest taxi fleet operator for technical and financial assistance on fleet electrification. ADB organized this workshop to present international experience in other ADB developing member countries (DMCs) as well as developed countries, present and discuss the fleet operator's proposal, and provide feedback on possible scope and modalities of ADB technical and financial assistance.

ADB Energy Sector Group (ESG) as part of its work plan and program advocates the deployment of renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy access technologies by facilitating its wider technology application, raising awareness, encouraging policy and regulatory incentives to minimize the risks and lower costs of advanced technology development. The TA supported the conduct of the Regional Workshop on High Level Innovative Technologies in Tokyo, Japan on 27 February to 1 March 2019. The objective of the workshop is to strengthen DMCs officials and ADB in their understanding of the innovative HLT energy solutions, equip them with the technical skills to design and promote appropriate energy projects in DMCs by understanding the legal, regulatory environment, financing and incentive mechanisms to effectively developing energy projects.

The TA has also mobilized experts to assist in programmatic activities for technology evaluation, feasibility assessments, and identification of prospective investment operations.

Planned activities:

One significant event that the TA will support is the annual Asia Clean Energy Forum (ACEF), an ADB flagship event. The ACEF has helped significantly in raising ADB's profile in the energy sector and in gaining recognition by ADB DMCs and development partners as a source of knowledge and expertise. The TA has mobilized consultants to pursue this objective of expanding ADB's clean energy program and building greater capacity to develop innovative clean energy projects.

The TA will also support the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) in the assessment of renewable energy sources, identify existing infrastructure and power demand, and determine likely scenarios for demand response solutions using renewables and storage. Renewable energy sources will include but not be limited to solar, geothermal, waste to energy and wind or mix thereof.
