ETP Approach

Towards healthier, greener and safer environment for all

Strategy

SEA ETP strategy is focused on implementation for impact. It is our direction towards sustainable development and greener, healthier and equitable societies through energy transition.

Our overarching energy transition agenda is being implemented through multiple programmes supported by several international donors and partners providing assistance in the region, where SEA ETP has a coordination role to facilitate a systematic approach to accelerate energy transition.

Over the period of 5 years, we will provide support through Technical Assistance programmes for advancing knowledge, skills and capacity, Aligned Programmes for capital investment projects’ implementation capacity, and Civil Society activities for public participation.

Our main focus will be on increasing renewable energy and energy efficiency as well as deployment in the power sector and end-user sectors such as industry and transport.

ETP Outcome Pathways and Results

We understand that energy transition requires a long-term systemic approach to address the complex issues of greenhouse gases and generate long-term positive socio-economic impact.

To bring about this change, SEA ETP considers three scenarios of activities to achieve:

ETP Outcome Pathways and Results

Up to 2050 and beyond

  • Increased deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency

Up to 2030

  • Strengthened renewable energy and energy efficiency policy enabling environment
  • Increased flow of public and private investments to renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in the power and end-user sectors
  • Increased the amount of renewable energy integrated in smart grids
  • Sustainable resilient infrastructures built and maintained
  • Increased development of and accessibility to renewable energy and energy efficiency knowledge and skills

Up to 2025

  • National renewable energy and energy efficiency policies, regulations, standards, and energy plans reflect a clear commitment to energy transition agenda and are integrated into sectoral plans to contribute to the achievement of Paris Agreement
  •  National fiscal policies, regulations, and investment policies have undergone reforms to create an investment climate that is conducive to investment flow into renewable energy and energy efficiency and improves its energy transition readiness for capital and investments
  • Energy transition agenda is centrally led and coordinated effectively at a national-level agency/institution that is tasked to champion the cause with an adequate level of authority
  • National budgets indicate a reserve to maximize renewable energy and energy efficiency capacity by allocating increased amount of public funds and attracting foreign direct investment in the energy sector
  • De-risked project finance is accessible via financial institutions generating a pipeline of large-scale renewable energy/energy efficiency projects
  • National energy strategy and sectoral plans involve evidence-based planning for an improved national-smart-grid system along with related sustainable resilient infrastructure and innovative technologies
  • Stakeholders (relevant government entities, public sector companies, financial institutions, private entities, academia, think tanks and civil society) involved in the renewable energy/energy efficiency value chain are knowledgeable to advance the energy transition agenda
Impact

Impact

The anticipated impact of energy transition will result in a gradual reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and reduced air pollution, which in turn will create a healthier, greener and safer environment. Advancements in renewable energy are estimated to generate millions of jobs that will bring socio-economic benefits to its people and countries overall.
