Regional: Southeast Asia Energy Sector Development, Investment Planning and Capacity Building Facility

Sovereign (Public) Project | 52096-001 Status: Active

The proposed transaction technical assistance (TA) facility will provide project preparatory assistance, technical support, policy advice, knowledge sharing, and capacity building, and subsequently, strengthen due diligence and improve project readiness to Southeast Asian developing member countries (DMCs) for a series of lending projects and programs identified in the country operations business plans, 2018-2020. The TA will initially support (i) Support for a Sustainable Power Sector (Cambodia), (ii) Accelerating Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Expansion (Viet Nam), (iii) Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Activity in the Natural Gas Processing Sector (Indonesia); (iv) Geothermal Sector Project (Indonesia), (v) Power Network Development Program II (Myanmar), (vi) GMS Cross-Border Power Trade and Distribution Project (Lao PDR); and (vii) Sustainable Rural Power Supply Project (Philippines). These energy sector projects require similar preparation, due diligence, design and readiness activities.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Despite rapid economic growth, out of about 640 million people in the region, an estimated 65 million people remain without electricity and 250 million rely on biomass for cooking. Access to modern energy varies significantly among the ASEAN countries, ranging from 26% in Myanmar and 65% in Cambodia and Myanmar up to 100% in the region's most advanced economies such as Singapore and Thailand. The region also just started developing the frameworks and financing sources for a cleaner and more sustainable energy transition taking advantage of new technological advancements and recent cost reduction in renewable energy and energy efficiency. While the investment and capacity building needs differ among the DMCs, they generally include generation, transmission, distribution, energy efficiency investments and increased investment planning capacity to minimize the sector's carbon footprint.

The role of the energy sector as a key enabler of inclusive growth has become more important as the DMCs of Southeast Asia face the challenge of expanding their economies. Improved access to affordable and sustainable forms of energy is critical to enhance competitiveness, to contribute to climate change mitigation, and to promote increased economic activity in remote areas and thereby to improve inclusiveness of development. Continued urbanization, rising incomes leading to increased ownership of appliances and increased demand for cooling, and rapidly growing commercial and industrial activity all collectively contribute to electricity being the largest share of total energy consumption growth in the region.

The series of loans and knowledge services supported by this TA facility will helps support economic growth, expand and enforce existing electrical grids, connect businesses and households, and enhance the quality of life in unconnected villages across the region. They will help expand the use of renewable energy resources and clean technologies, such as solar power in Cambodia, the Philippines, and Viet Nam, and geothermal power and CCS in Indonesia, and thus help reduce carbon emissions and improve access to electricity services. The loans will require similar technical, financial, economic, environment, social, governance and legal due diligence.

Consulting Services Most technical experts will be engaged through consulting firm(s) using quality- and cost-based selection method (quality: cost weighting of 90:10). The maximum use of output-based/lumpsum consulting contracts will be considered to simplify TA administration and improve operational efficiency. Disbursements under the TA will be in accordance with ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time). For the areas of social and environmental safeguards, program coordination, knowledge and resource speakers, and for specialized technical requirements, consultants will be engaged using the individual selection method and output-based partial lump sum contracts. The consultants will consist of energy sector specialists as primary experts, and financial, economic, legal, gender, social, environmental, climate expertise, and other experts as required
