About ETP

Why Energy Transition Partnership in the region?

Southeast Asia’s economic growth has generated new opportunities, raised the standard of living for many across the region, and dramatically reduced poverty. However, this has come at a high cost, as the growth was largely fueled by a significant increase in the use of fossil fuels, and led to steeply rising greenhouse gas emissions, persistent environmental pollution, local health risks and exacerbated climate vulnerabilities worldwide.

With the energy demand forecasted to double by 2035, Southeast Asia needs to rapidly ramp up private and public investment in renewable energy and energy efficiency to ensure a clean and healthy future for the region and the world.

Why Energy Transition Partnership in the region?

What We Do

Pursuing energy transition

Across Southeast Asia, at the regional, national and local levels, ETP ambitiously pursues energy transition. We engage private and public partners to drive change at policy, fiscal and technology level. We expand financing for investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable resilient infrastructures to deliver joint action in the following areas:

Strengthening renewable energy policies through an enabling environment
Strengthening renewable energy policies image
We provide high level technical advisory support to improve renewable energy and energy efficiency policies, regulations and laws. We work towards aligning energy policy targets with climate action commitments.
Expanding sustainable and resilient infrastructures through planning and operation
Expanding sustainable and-resilient infrastructures image
We deliver sustainable and resilient infrastructures as a key to climate adaptation and mitigation measures. We provide technical solutions to expand smart grids, enable evidencebased planning for national grid systems, and provide capacity building for grid operators.
Increasing smart investments in renewable energy

We aim to unlock large-scale renewable energy investments by national and international financial institutions, while increasing de-risking of projects and making them bankable. ETP aspires to introduce innovative financing models to leverage private capital through the region’s sovereign wealth funds.
Knowledge, skills and capacity development
Knowledge skills and capacity development image
We developed a comprehensive platform to foster knowledge accessible to market leaders, early innovators and other relevant stakeholders. We build technical and technology expertise through education programmes. In partnership with local institutions, we establish state-of-the-art centres of excellence on energy efficiency testing, grid flexibility and integration and energy transition policy modelling.

Our Aim

ETP makes bold efforts to achieve the Paris Climate Goals

ETP works in partnership with the region’s energy champions and institutions to promote urgency and bold measures to step up energy transition.

Our Projects

In the Philippines, ETP supports stakeholders to break through the barriers to energy transition. To enable more RE deployment, ETP provides on-going support to the energy regulator to enhance the energy sector rules as well as support to design battery energy storage systems in the electricity spot market. ETP also aims to help develop the smart grid roadmap and a design of a carbon tax to foster energy energy efficiency and energy transition.

In Vietnam, ETP partners with government counterparts, who include MOIT, CMSC, CEC, MONRE and MOST.

Our programmes support areas including Coal Phase Out, Energy Efficiency, Carbon Markets and Offshore Wind Energy. There is ongoing work including assessing various coal abatement scenarios, preparing net-zero roadmaps for the SOEs and the development of infrastructure to allow the proliferation of offshore wind.

In Indonesia, UNOPS and the Government of Indonesia signed a new MOU that sets the tone for collaboration on the ETP programme. There is an ongoing upgrade project of Java-Madura-Bali Control Centre, which facilitates clean energy for 160 million people in the region, as well as ongoing study on Financial Implications of Early CFPP Retirement. Other programs are prepared to support ETP four pillars implementation.

We empower our partner countries – Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines to transition towards a sustainable energy system, generate economic​ ​growth and ensure energy security.

What We Do

High-level technical advisory support

High-level technical advisory support

On policy, regulatory, financial and infrastructure improvements needed to increase the deployment of renewable and energy efficiency.

Capacity and skills development

Capacity and skills development

Cover for both financing and technical needs. This will be achieved through coordination between ETP technical assistance and capital investment programmes financed by ETP members.

Provision of a holistic support to governments

Provision of a holistic support to governments

Directed towards improving each country’s human capital. Direct beneficiaries of these services will be representatives of governments, utilities, financial institutions, project developers, industries and service providers, think tanks, academia and other relevant stakeholders.

Facilitating dialogue

Facilitating dialogue

Between the business sector and governments to find common solutions for rapidly and viably scaling up renewable energy and energy efficiency projects and infrastructures. ETP will also support dialogue and actions by all relevant stakeholders to promote and enact a just and equitable energy transition.
