About ETP

Powering prosperity for sustainable growth

The Southeast Asia Energy Transition Partnership (ETP) is a multi-donor partnership formed by governmental and philanthropic partners to accelerate sustainable energy transition in Southeast Asia in line with the Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goals.

We combine the best of the public and private sector with the UN to help mobilize and coordinate technical and financial resources to build the foundations for renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable resilient infrastructures.

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

Powering prosperity for sustainable growth

Our Aim

From our Director

“This partnership is a forward-looking, agile platform to support Southeast Asia in its efforts to meet the rapidly growing need for energy, encourage the integration of renewable energy in the energy mix, and boost leadership in and financing for energy transition.”

Philip Timothy Rose

Director, Southeast Asia Energy Transition Partnership

ETP Approach

Towards healthier, greener and safer environment for all


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 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 is 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, ETP considers three scenarios of activities to achieve:

ETP Outcome Pathways and Results
  • 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
  • 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
  • Increased deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency


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.
