ETP Work

ETP Work

Encouraging the use of sustainable renewable energy

Our work is guided by the ETP Steering Committee formed of multiple funding partners providing strategic leadership and oversight. ETP Secretariat implements our projects, coordinates with aligned programmes and conducts dialogues with energy transition stakeholders to ensure successful implementation of interventions. Acting as intermediary, UNOPS hosts ETP Secretariat, and provides financial management, procurement and human resource services in accordance with ETP’s strategy, work plans as well as UNOPS rules and regulations. This innovative structure allows alignment, coordination and joint delivery of projects with focus on efficiency, cost-effectiveness and quality.

ETP Roadmap

Energy Transition Objectives

Our Roadmap

1. Impact

ETP’s long-term goal is to support partner countries’ transition towards modern energy systems that simultaneously ensure economic growth, energy security, and environmental sustainability in line with the Paris Agreement. The long-term impact of energy transition would result in a gradual reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, thus resulting in ensuring a safe and clean environment with reduced air pollution that would in turn benefit in reduced negative impact on peoples’ health.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and controlling it within the climate targets of the Paris Agreement would also help the countries in meeting their international treaty obligations on climate change, which in turn will contribute to reducing the adverse climate impact on its own environment and people. Advancements in the renewable energy space are estimated to generate millions of jobs that will bring economic benefits to its people and countries overall.

2. Long Term Outcomes

The long-term outcomes of energy transition interventions are to develop the capability within the partner countries’ energy systems where renewable energy and energy efficiency would be increasingly deployed. This will be accomplished by consistently adding RE generation and supply capacity by utilizing the potential of abundant renewable sources and advanced technologies available, while also advancing knowledge and technological innovation.

The share of RE in consumption would be maximized by integrating energy systems and infrastructures for optimum utilization. Energy efficiency would be improved through technological innovations in products and services, preventing energy loss in transmission and distribution systems through quality infrastructure, integrating nature-based solutions, and designing and implementing suitable technical standards.
