PROJECT OBJECTIVE

The TA will bring greater collaboration and focus among ADB operations divisions to attend to this unmet need of clean and legal energy access in urban poor areas. It will assist selected DMCs to identify, design and develop projects to address the unmet energy needs of the urban poor and prepare for projects and programs for replication and scaling up using ADB or other sources. It will also review ADB's pipeline of projects in the energy and urban sectors and assist in developing components for energy access in urban informal settlements. Inputs will also be provided to ADB's low cost housing projects where energy efficient measures can be integrated. The main impact of this Project will be the achievement of the SE4ALL targets in Asia and the Pacific. The specific outcome of this Project will be the increased capacity and investment readiness of urban energy access projects.

PROJECT 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 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
