Project Summary

In the midst of economic development and growing demand of energy consumption in the region, renewable and clean energy, especially solar energy, have become a very important topic in the APEC region, with APEC Leaders continuously reaffirming the APEC aspirational goal of doubling the share of renewables in the APEC energy mix from 2010 levels by 2030.

Realizing this opportunity and to facilitate the development of solar energy in APEC member economies, Viet Nam proposes to organize a 2-day APEC Workshop on Strategies and Successful Case Studies on Solar Energy in Viet Nam, which will bring officials, representatives from the private and academic sectors and other stakeholders solar energy to share respective case studies and strategies in solar energy, learn from experiences to support all member economies of APEC to develop and implement policies on solar energy to provide energy needs in the midst of economic development and increasing consumption, draw more investments and address environmental issues.

Relevance

Relevance – Region: Solar energy is one of the fastest growing types of resource right now and it has so much more to offer. The world installed a record 98 gigawatts of new solar capacity, far more than the net additions of any other technology – renewable, fossil fuel or nuclear.

Solar power also attracted far more investment, at $160.8 billion, up 18 per cent, than any other technology. It made up 57 per cent of last year’s total for all renewables (excluding large hydro) of $279.8 billion, and it towered above new investment in coal and gas generation capacity, at an estimated $103 billion.[1]

The implications of such progress are huge, especially for the environment. As for the coal industry, including coal power plants, they are expected to experience a sharp decline somewhere between 2020 and 2050. The number ranges from 62 percent to 16 percent, which is significant either way[2]. Furthermore, the cost of renewable energy is now falling so fast that it should be a consistently cheaper source of electricity generation than traditional fossil fuels within just a few years, according to a new report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)[3].

APEC member economies have the biggest opportunities to facilitate solar energy thanks to the abundance of sunshine in the region. At the moment, according to Bloomberg’s reports, China is the leading economy in terms of solar power, producing the most solar panels in the world compared to any other economy.

In the midst of economic development and growing demand of energy consumption in the region, the topic of renewable and clean energy, especially solar energy have become a very important topic in the APEC region, with APEC Leaders continuously reaffirming the APEC aspirational goal of doubling the share of renewables in the APEC energy mix from 2010 levels by 2030.

Realizing this opportunity and the need to take the next step in facilitating the development of solar energy in APEC member economies, Viet Nam proposes to organize an APEC Workshop on Strategies and Successful Case Studies[4] on Solar Energy, which will bring officials, representatives from the private and academic sectors and other stakeholders in the renewable energy sector, particularly solar energy to draw from case studies, learn from experiences to support all member economies of APEC to develop and implement policies on solar energy to meet with  energy needs.

It is expected that there will be 2 groups of case studies presented by Workshop speakers: (i) case studies from successful solar energy projects on buildings, and (ii) case studies from successful solar energy projects on islands.

Relevance – Eligibility and Fund Priorities: Low Carbon and Energy Efficiency Sub-fund focused on project that will contribute to achieving APEC's aggregate energy intensity reduction goal of 45% by 2035 which was agreed at the APEC Leaders Meeting in Honolulu in 2011. By facilitating solar energy policies, the project will ultimately contribute to wiser and more efficient use of energy and therefore, to APEC's aggregate energy intensity reduction goal of 45% by 2035.

Relevance – Capacity Building: Through project’s outputs (Workshop; Summary Report), the proposed project will help to enable participants from member economies - particularly developing economies – to absorb and share information, strategies to develop solar energy, successful case studies in APEC and non-APEC economies in developing solar energy.

Developing economies who will send participants to the Workshop will benefit most since their participants’ capacities are built while economies that are unable to send participants may somehow get information from uploaded presentations and summary report.

Objectives

The objective of this project is to bring together officials, representatives from the private and academic sectors and other stakeholders solar energy to share respective case studies and strategies in solar energy, learn from experiences to support all member economies of APEC to develop and implement policies on solar energy to provide energy needs in the midst of economic development and increasing consumption, draw more investments and address environmental issues.

Alignment

Alignment - APEC: In 2017, APEC Ministers welcomed “the efforts toward reducing aggregate energy intensity, accelerating clean, efficient, and renewable energy deployment, pursuing sustainable and resilient energy development, and developing diversified, flexible and integrated natural gas market in the Asia-Pacific, which in particular may contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.” They also urged “economies to strengthen coordination and cooperation through sharing best practices, and deploying advanced technologies, including waste recycling.”  By contributing to promote renewable energy policies, this project is designed to implement Ministers’ instructions to accelerate renewable energy development and deployment to attain APEC’s aspirational goal of doubling the share of renewables in the APEC energy mix, including in power generation, from 2010 levels by 2030.

Alignment – Forum: This project will contribute to the APEC Energy Security Initiative (ESI) as it is the principal mechanism through which the EWG addresses the short and long term energy security challenges in a sustainable manner. In ESI, Long-term measures include facilitating investment, trade and technology cooperation in energy infrastructure, natural gas (including LNG), energy efficiency, clean fossil energy (including carbon capture and geological sequestration), renewable energy and hydrogen and fuel cells[1]. Therefore, this project is one of such long-term measures.

Description

A pre-workshop research

As a stock-taking exercise, this research will compile strategies applied in the regions as well as seek out specific case studies on solar energy.

Workshop

A 2-day Workshop held in Viet Nam in 2020.

Discussion topics will include various strategies to develop solar energy, successful case studies in APEC and non-APEC economies in developing solar energy etc. The case studies will be prepared and presented by Workshop speakers, followed by questions and answers at floor.

In line with Chile’s 2019 priority on women and inclusive growth, PO will also consider to incorporate gender issues into the project event agenda, for example by including an agenda item on the underrepresentation of women in the solar energy sector.

The Workshop will gather various stakeholders such as energy-related government officials, experts from academia, the private sector (solar energy related companies), energy associations, and international organizations (UNEP, IEA, OECD etc.). These stakeholders should be involved in solar energy-related activities/ business/ policy-making, studies etc. The primary participant group will be solar energy-related government officials. Other groups may attend the event as speakers/ panellists/ moderators.

Recommendations from the Workshop will not only include further activities/ initiatives but organizers will also encourage participants to provide recommendations on actionable policy (policies) after the Workshop that can contribute to achieving the project’s goal. Workshop organizers will try to make sure that recommendations by participants will be with substantive content, taking into account applicability of such recommendations.

Summary report

A summary report (ranging from 10 to 15 pages) with outcomes and recommendations from the Workshop will be presented to EWG. Such report will be composed of the following, but not limited to, sections: introduction of the project; briefings of the presentations made at the Workshop, including strategies and successful case studies; briefings on discussions at the Workshop; suggested recommendations made by Workshop attendants and the project consultant. Participants will provide recommendations by 2 ways: (i) during discussions at the Workshop, (ii) at the Evaluation forms that are provided at the end of the Workshop.

This Report will be an APEC Publication.

Targeted audience of the summary report: project attendants, EWG and Expert Group on New and Renewable Technology Technologies (EGNRET) members

Purpose: summarise proceedings, discussions and recommendations at the Workshop.

Presentation on project outcomes

Brief presentation of progress and outcomes of the Project at EWG meetings in 2020 and 2021

Outcomes: In the short term, the Workshop is expected to lead to a strengthened ability of participants, especially regulators and policy-makers, to integrate knowledge and information absorbed from the Workshop on solar energy related policies. Participants from developing economies will also have a chance to learn about case studies in economies, from which they can learn and draw lessons, experiences and good practices regarding solar energy policies.

The strategies and successful case studies on solar energy learnt from the Workshop is valuable, since participants may suggest applying a same strategy to develop solar energy in the home economy. In addition, from case studies, participants will know about how policies/strategies were applied in actual solar energy projects, bridging the gap between regulation and project implementation. Presentations and discussions on case studies will be an opportunity for participants to learn about problem solving so as the solar energy projects can succeed.

Beneficiaries:

- Junior or medium level governments’ officials and policy-makers from 21 APEC member economies, who are directly involved in solar energy. They may come from Department of Energy, Energy Regulatory Body, and Renewable Energy Agency. This will be the primary participant group of the Workshop.

- Local and international experts from academic sector who has experiences in research/ consultancy in solar energy might attend the Workshop as speakers/ moderators.

-  Local and international experts from private sector specialized in technology, consultancy, production etc. in solar energy. They can be speakers/ moderators at the Workshop as well as a secondary participant group due to their engagement in solar energy projects.

-  Representatives from international/ regional organizations such as Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), International Energy Agency (IEA), International Renewable Energy Agency, United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), ASEAN etc. might attend the Workshop as speakers/ moderators.

- Business associations (Renewable Energy Association, Energy Association, Science and Technology Association, etc.). They can be speakers/ moderators at the Workshop as well as a secondary participant group.

Dissemination

Hard copies (presentations of the Workshop) will be provided to all the Workshop’s participants. Electronic publication (presentations of the Workshop and project’s summary report) will also be used to disseminate the Workshop’s documents widely.  APEC’s official website will be the main one to upload the documents (project’s summary report).  The Summary Repot will be available as an APEC Publication.

A summary report (ranging from 10 to 15 pages) with outcomes and recommendations from the Workshop will be presented to EWG. Such report will be composed of the following, but not limited to, sections: introduction of the project; briefings of the presentations made at the Workshop, including best practices (if any); briefings on discussions at the Workshop; suggested recommendations made by Workshop attendants and the project consultant. Target audience of the summary report: Workshop speakers and participants, EWG/ EGNRET focal points and other interested persons/ organizations.

APEC Publications Toolkit is guidance on how an APEC report should be written and presented. The summary report should comply with APEC Publication Guidelines, IP Policy, and Logo Guidelines.

Electronic copies of the Workshop presentations and summary report will also be circulated to Workshop speakers and participants.  All Workshop presentations and materials will be uploaded to Google drive (or Dropbox) and the link will be shared with speakers and participants to download prior to the Workshop.  All the meeting documents may be uploaded at Meeting Document Database (MDDB) after the workshop. 

Organizers will encourage participants to circulate documents domestically to assure effectiveness in dissemination. 
project’s summary report will also be prepared and submitted to the Energy Working Group.

No intention to sell outputs arising from this project.

Gender

As found in the recent APEC project PPWE 03 2017A on women in energy:

·   Data collected by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) on gender disparity in the renewable energy sector indicates that women constitute only 32% of the current full-time workforce in the renewable energy sector.

·   Women face persistent barriers to entry and advancement in this sector due to multiple reasons, including a lack of awareness of opportunities, lack of a STEM background, unfavourable workplace policies, perception of gender roles and self-perception. 

·   Despite this discouraging trend, the global energy transition towards a renewable, distributed, decarbonized energy system offers unprecedented opportunities to transform the energy sector, including creating opportunities for social and gender equality.

·   IRENA projects potential job growth in the sector from 10.3 million in 2017 to nearly 29 million in 2050, offering diverse employment opportunities along the value chain requiring different skill sets.

·   Greater engagement of women in the sector can help expand the talent pool available to provide diverse skills and perspectives that would significantly contribute to sustainable energy development.

In line with Chile’s 2019 priority on women and inclusive growth, PO will also consider to incorporate gender issues into the project event agenda, for example by including an agenda item on the underrepresentation of women in the solar energy sector. A publication by the International Energy Agency (IEA)[1] highlighted that to deal with underrepresentation of women in solar energy required commitment and persistence, ability to network, good partnership, securing access to funding etc.

This project can potentially addresses three of the five Gender Criteria (Skills, Capacity Building, Health; Leadership, Agency, Voice; and Innovation and Technology) as detailed in Appendix G of the Guidebook on APEC Projects, Edition 12.

Women will be directly and actively involved in the project. Project proponents of this Workshop are women. The Workshop organizers will be careful to include women speakers and participants in the Workshop.  The organizers will encourage women to be involved during the preparatory stage and actual activity. Invitations sent to EWG, ENGRET representatives will take due consideration of gender concerns by encouraging the suggestion and nomination of female speakers and participants.

Organizers set the target of 40% of Dialogue participants will be female. The organizers commit to setting a target of 2 female speakers/moderators out of 8 speakers/moderators (25%).

Duplication of topics

The project duplicating areas of discussion which previous and recent projects have elaborated very much on

Carry out investigation of previous APEC project. A good resource to start with is the Project Database at https://aimp2.apec.org/sites/PDB/default.aspx

To consult closely with APEC Secretariat and APEC member economies to avoid duplication as they can be aware of previous, duplicated activities/ agenda items.


Monitoring and Evaluation

PO will provide detailed progress reporting in the Monitoring Reports and comply to timely submissions to the Secretariat for effective monitoring of the project’s implementation.

Estimated indicators: monitoring reports

The Workshop’s Organizers will work closely and regularly with co-sponsor economies in determining the content of the agenda, selection of speakers, moderators, experts and participants for the Workshop. The project will adhere strictly to APEC project implementation procedures, including the timeline of actions. Organizers

Estimated indicators: Number of speakers/ participants, number of participating economies and diversification of speakers/ participants (at least 8 speakers/moderators, at least 10 economies will participate in this Workshop; at least 15% of Workshop participants will be international). Balance distribution of participant groups among the officials in solar energy sector, representatives from the private and academic sectors and other stakeholders. The indicators for participants will be independent of the speakers and will be sex-disaggregated. Organizers set the target of 40% of Dialogue participants will be female. The organizers set a target of 2 female speakers/moderators out of 8 speakers/moderators (25%). 

An evaluation form will be prepared and distributed to all participants as well as the speakers, moderators and experts to assess the effectiveness of the Workshop with respect to the relevance on the topics, presentations by speakers, overall impact and suggestions for further improvement and/or activities for future projects. The organizing committee will compile all comments and reflect them into the summary report, which will be submitted to the APEC Energy Working Group for consideration.

Estimated indicators: Score of satisfaction on substance, speakers, logistic arrangements, impacts etc. in the questionnaires responded from participants. Organizers expected that at least 8 recommendations will be made at this Workshop.

The summary report and Workshop documents will be made available to Workshop participants and the APEC Secretariat. The draft summary report on the outcome of the Workshop will be sent to APEC Secretariat for review before finalization.

Estimated indicators: (i) Progress of draft and final summary report; (ii) Dissemination of draft and final summary report to participants and EWG

Strategies and case studies in solar energy to be presented at the Workshop.

Estimated indicators: The organizers set a target of 4 strategies and 5 successful case studies to be presented during the project.

Linkages

Engagement: During implementation process, information will be disseminated to other relevant fora (Expert Group on Clean Fossil Energy, Expert Group on New and Renewable Energy Technologies) to encourage their participation in the Workshop. Organizers will work closely with relevant regional and international organizations (International Energy Agency, ASEAN, OECD, UNEP) to get inputs and enhance engagements.

Previous work: Previously APEC had a number of projects touching on other angles of solar photovoltaic (solar PV) such as its market (EWG 04 2007T Development of Solar Thermal Market in the APEC Economies), financing and investment (EWG 04 2018A APEC Regional Study on Renewable Energy Financing and Investment for Grid-Connected Wind and Solar), supply chain (EWG 23 2013A APEC Conference on Facilitating the Solar Supply Chain), APEC Workshop on Public – Private Partnership for Solar Energy Development (EWG 12 2018A) etc.

This project is differed from above projects since it will only focused on solar energy related strategies and successful case studies in APEC and non-APEC economies. APEC Workshop on Public – Private Partnership (PPP) for Solar Energy Development including some case studies, focusing on PPP but not success factors for solar energy projects.

APEC’s comparative advantage: APEC is the best source of funding for this project because APEC has been working actively on RCE agenda. The results of the Workshop will contribute to the overall APEC work.

Sustainability

As a stock-taking exercise, a pre-workshop research will compile strategies applied in the regions as well as seek out specific case studies on solar energy. Such a research will lay out a foundation for Workshop speakers and participants to discuss agenda items relating to solar energy’s strategies and case studies.

Experts can make use of results or outcomes of this project, including the research, in expected future projects. Participants can create cooperative network or means of future exchange of ideas and discussions. Possible future actions to be reflected in the summary report will be discussed at EWG, in close consultations with other related APEC sub-fora. In the Workshop, since the final Session will be devoted to floor discussion, participants will be encouraged to suggest policy/ actionable recommendations, which will then be submitted to EWG for their review. This can be a valuable resource for economies and organizations to consider their future activities, actions, regulations in the solar energy sector.

Project overseers will engage in dissemination and follow up engagement with project participants to ensure they feel equipped, have information they required.

This contact list of a network including Workshop’s speakers and participants will be compiled and circulated at EWG. The summary report will suggest next steps (future APEC Workshops, seminar, events, capacity building, study, research, survey etc.) based on the discussions of the Workshop. Such summary report will be submitted to EWG.
