Regional: Pilot Testing of Innovative Energy Technologies and Business Models

Sovereign (Public) Project | 52041-004 Status: Active

The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) cluster on Integrated High Impact Innovation on Sustainable Energy Technology was approved by the President on 16 October 2018. The TA cluster 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 cluster 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, including their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) as part of the Paris Agreement on climate change. The TA cluster aims to achieve greater development impact through energy sector technology innovations in ADB operations to meet the SDGs and NDCs in Asia and the Pacific.

The TA subproject 3 will have the following outcome: Use of sustainable innovative technologies in participating DMCs increased. The TA subproject 3 outcome will support the following outputs of the overall TA cluster: i) Pilot testing of innovative technologies deployed and impact assessment and knowledge solutions.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The TA subproject 3 will identify and support pilot demonstrations of innovative technologies and business models in coordination with ADB's regional departments, including cross-sector and thematic initiatives with, but not limited to, water, transport, environment, and urban sector groups; the Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management Thematic Group; and the Digital Technology for Development Unit. The TA subproject 3 will also finance impact assessment and knowledge solutions of pilot projects to assess the effectiveness and efficiency in the implementation of projects and provide on-hand information on project progress, particularly in relation to beneficiaries and results.
Impact Access to reliable, low-carbon, and cost-effective energy increased
