Regional: Support for Innovation and Technology Partnerships in Asia and the Pacific - Energy Sector High-Level Technology Application (Subproject 2)

Sovereign (Public) Project | 52307-003 Status: Active

TA Subproject 2 aims to support ADB's developing member countries' objective to introduce high-level technology solutions to energy-related development challenges.

There are three concrete challenges which TA Subproject 2 aims to find new solutions for: (i) increasing clean energy use for heating and cooling, (ii) advancing efficient renewable energy based microgrids, and (iii) efficiently improving energy demand management. To this end, TA Subproject 2 will support achieving economic development while meeting nationally determined contributions pledged under the Paris Agreement.

Description

TA Subproject 2 aims to support ADB's developing member countries' objective to introduce high-level technology solutions to energy-related development challenges.

There are three concrete challenges which TA Subproject 2 aims to find new solutions for: (i) increasing clean energy use for heating and cooling, (ii) advancing efficient renewable energy based microgrids, and (iii) efficiently improving energy demand management. To this end, TA Subproject 2 will support achieving economic development while meeting nationally determined contributions pledged under the Paris Agreement.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Energy is critical to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on climate change. Energy sector operations will contribute to the priorities identified in ADB Strategy 2030 through provision of affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, and achieving this will require increasing access to electricity, deployment of renewable energy, and a strong focus on energy efficiency.

Development challenges. Many countries in Asia and the Pacific face challenges in achieving SDG7. Still an estimated 350 million people lack access to electricity in developing Asia. As these populations are mostly living in remote areas or island states which national grids do not reach, new technologies and innovative business models will be required to provide affordable, accessible, reliable, and clean energy. Second, as the world is facing the impact of climate change, pressures for curtailing carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel-based power generation have become imperative. Although Asia and the Pacific countries have made great progress in economic development, most of them have fallen short on meeting their climate change mitigation targets. DMCs face the double burden of tackling energy supply security while meeting global climate goals.

High-level technology can provide DMCs with innovative solutions to meet growing energy needs, while also achieving nationally determined contributions (NDCs), and increasing access to affordable, reliable, and clean energy.

Impact Use of advanced and innovative technologies across ADB operations promoted and capacity-building support to DMCs provided

Business Opportunities
Procurement Competitive grant selection. The TA subproject will provide grants for competitively selected technology proposals in compliance with the principles stated in the ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time). A customized, fit-for-purpose international grant challenge process has been developed. The process includes the identification of the development challenge, the advertisement of the challenge and the request for EOI, the submission of EOIs, the shortlisting of HLT providers based on the EOI, a Call for Proposals, the submission of a detailed response by the shortlisted providers and the selection of the most suitable proposal based on criteria listed in the linked documents.

Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.

The Access to Information Policy (AIP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
