Clean Energy Program

Asian Development Bank (ADB)

The Clean Energy Program of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is a multipronged, umbrella program that seeks to help developing Asian countries meet their energy security needs, facilitate a transition to a low-carbon economy, bring about universal access to energy, and achieve ADB’s vision of a region free of poverty. The Clean Energy Program pursues these goals by supporting improved efficiency in the energy, transport, urban, and water sectors; aiding countries with the adoption and deployment of renewable energy sources; and improving access to energy for the poor, especially those in remote, rural areas.

Steps to Access & Application Procedure

While all developing member countries are eligible for support from clean energy
funds, requests for resources can be made only through operations departments
of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). Through them, project proposals are
submitted to the Climate Change Steering Committee, through the Facility
Manager using the application form of the Clean Energy Financing Partnership
Facility (CEFPF) and ADB’s standard concept paper template. Applications are
reviewed in six batches and are due on 31 January, 31 March, 31 May, 31 July,
30 September, and 30 November.
ADB’s Clean Energy Working Group reviews and endorses project proposals
based on CEFPF’s Implementation Guidelines, guided by CEFPF’s design and
monitoring framework, which was decided through an agreement between
CEFPF’s financing partners and ADB. The Climate Change Steering Committee
finally allocates resources to selected project proposals. Following fund allocation
from CEFPF, the approval of the proposed clean energy project follows the normal
ADB procedure.
