Project Summary

Most people living in rural areas of developing APEC economies are currently do not have proper and regular access to energy. This affects the quality of living as well as the development of rural and remote areas in such economies.

The proposal aims at organizing a Workshop on Promoting Renewable Energy for Rural and Remote Area Development.

The Workshop will be held in October 2021 in Viet Nam.

The main objective of the project is to help relevant economies and participants share information and experiences in using renewable energy to promote rural/remote area development as well as develop a set of recommendations on renewable energy policies for policy makers.

Relevance

Relevance – Region: According to the UNDP Study “World Energy Assessment: Energy and the Challenge of Sustainability” in 2015, in the past 20-30 years, several hundred millions of people have improved their access to energy. Nevertheless, we cannot simply ignore the energy needs of the 2 billion people who are mostly in remote/rural area and have no means of escaping continuing cycles of poverty and deprivation (Source: UNDP Study: World Energy Assessment, 2000).

This is mostly due to geographic difficulties. Most of these households are minorities, living in isolated area where the national electricity grid cannot reach also their demand for electricity is not high. Therefore, the application of renewable energy is one suitable solution. This solution helps people have access to electricity for daily work. The cost is also lower than national electricity grid, not mentioning the electricity industry can save human resources for the management, operation and money collection. Also, renewable energy models in rural areas are also becoming a trend in economies around the world.

Renewable energy technologies are widely believed to lead to dramatic advances in the quality of life of the rural population and facilitate growth in these areas, which could possibly be achieved at costs that are within the means of government and beneficiaries. This project aims to help these stakeholders sharing information and experiences on applying renewable energy in order to utilize renewable energy to facilitate rural and remote area development as well as develop a set of recommendation on renewable energy policies while developing economy.

Over the recent years, with the objective to build the capacity of APEC members to strengthen domestic and regional energy security, the APEC Energy Working Group has contributed to maximizing the energy sector's contribution to the APEC region's economic and social well-being. However, there has not been a focused activity on promoting renewable energy for rural and remote area development. This project will seek to contribute useful recommendations regarding this topic to the work of the EWG.

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 renewable energy, 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. The project also contributes to doubling the share of renewables by 2030 which was endorsed by the APEC Leaders Meeting in Beijing in 2014 by facilitating the application of renewable energy for rural area.

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 exchange information, share experiences and case study on applying renewable energy in order to utilize renewable energy to facilitate rural development.

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 main objective of the project is to help relevant economies and stakeholders share information and experiences in using renewable energy to promote rural/remote area development as well as develop a set of recommendations on renewable energy policies for policy makers.

Alignment

Alignment - APEC:  Describe specific APEC priorities, goals, strategies and/ or statements that the project supports, and explain how the project will contribute to their achievement.

According to EWG’s proposed Work plan for 2020, one of the priorities under the theme “Optimising Human Potential towards a Future of Shared Prosperity” is Driving Innovative Sustainability. Renewable Energy is one of the key expected outcomes/deliverables in the Work Plan.

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 efforts on renewable energy to help accelerating “affordable, sustainable, reliable and clean energy access throughout the region” (EWG Strategic Plan 2019-2023) with the view to double the share of renewables from 2010 levels in the APEC energy mix, including in power generation, by 2030.

Description

Workshop

A 2-day Workshop will be held in Viet Nam in 2021.

We expect there will be 6-7 speakers, 3-4 panellists and about 60 participants attending the Workshop. The first day of the Workshop will be presentations of speakers, followed by Q&A Sessions. The second day of the Workshop will be short presentations, panellists’ discussion, Q&A and a Session of Recommendation.

The presentations may include the importance of renewable energy (RE) in rural/ remote area, challenges and opportunities for developing RE in rural/ remote area etc. The Session on recommendation will focus on suggestions at economy and APEC levels for consideration of activities/ policies to promote RE for rural/ remote area development. Organizers will encourage recommendations with substantial guidance on applicable actions or requirement on necessary resources to implement such recommendations.

IRENA[1] indicated potential job growth in the renewable energy 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. Adopting a gender a perspective to renewable energy development was critically important to ensure that women’s contributions (their skills and views) represented an integral part of the growing industry. The Workshop will consider to put gender issues into the agenda, for example by including an agenda item discussing how women’s role can be enhanced in promoting RE for rural/remote area development.

The Workshop will gather various stakeholders such as energy-related government officials, rural development government officials, private sectors (domestic and international renewable energy companies), energy associations, international organisations (for example IRENA, OECD, etc). These stakeholders should be involved in renewable energy and related activities/policy-making for renewable energy used for rural development.

This project’s objectives include but not limited to build awareness and capacity on for participants, especially the regulators, policy makers and businesses working on existing work in renewable energy sector and linkage with remote development; discuss on how to create the right market condition for optimal result; identify renewable energy linkages with rural development. There will be a discussion about the challenges and opportunities when policies makers and business work on this field. Session on recommendation will suggest renewable energy legislation and business models which support the linkages, etc

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 best practices (if any); briefings on discussions at the Workshop; suggested recommendations made by Workshop attendants and the project consultants. 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, Policy-makers/ regulators in the renewable energy and/or rural/remote area development sector of APEC economies.

Purpose: summarise discussions and recommendations at the Workshop.

Outcomes: In the short term:

The Workshop is expected to build awareness and capacity for participants, especially the regulators, policy makers and businesses working on existing work in renewable energy sector and rural/remote area development as well as increase knowledge in the linkage between renewable energy and remote development.

The organisers expect these stakeholders can integrate knowledge and information absorbed from the Workshop to apply in practice. Participants from developing economies will also have a chance to learn about case studies and best practices from APEC economies, from which they can draw lessons, experiences to apply in their economy.

In medium and long term:

The best practices/recommendations of the workshop which will be written in the final report would be the key component of the deliverables and include a set of policy options and good practices. These recommendations will be prepared by the speakers and organisers and also gathered from participants’ idea during discussion sessions.

These recommendations will include followed-up or additional APEC activities/ initiatives/ actions that APEC should have. This is a resource/ reference guide for APEC economies to consider in developing policies at economy’s or APEC’s level. 

Beneficiaries: The direct project participants and users of the outputs are:

·  Government officials and policy-makers from APEC economies, who are directly involved in renewable energy and rural development. They may come from Department of Energy, Energy Regulatory Body, Renewable Energy Agency, Department and Agencies in charge of remote/rural area development.

·  Policymakers from all APEC economies can learn from each other to promote the linkage between RE and rural development through sharing information on various new business models and good practices of policies and regulations. Business organizations also play key roles in enhancing rural development and will be engaged in the project.

· Local and international experts from private sectors specialized in technology, construction, production, consultancy in the following sectors: renewable energy (wind, solar energy, hydro power, etc.) and remote/rural area development. 

·   Local and international experts from academic sector who has experiences in research in renewable energy (wind energy, solar energy, biomass energy, hydro power, clean energy, energy efficiency etc.) and remote/rural area development.

Gender

According to Report “Renewable Energy: A Gender Perspective” of International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)[1] published in 2019:

· Adopting a gender a perspective to renewable energy development was critically important to ensure that women’s contributions (their skills and views) represented an integral part of the growing industry. IRENA indicated 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.

· The decentralised nature of renewable applications brings energy choices to the household and community level, where women tend to have a greater voice. Greater engagement of women in the sector could help expand the talent pool available to provide diverse skills and perspectives that would significantly contribute to sustainable energy development.

·  Because of the multi-disciplinary dimension in renewable energy, this field had exerted an appeal on women. However, data collected by IRENA showed that in renewable energy sector, women constituted only 32% of the current full-time workforce in the renewable energy sector, which was higher than the 22% average in the global oil and gas industry.

· Women has been facing 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, unfavorable workplace policies, perception of gender roles and self-perception. 

·  Therefore, establishing gender as a pillar of energy strategies at the national and global levels will produce a swifter and more-inclusive transition to renewable energy. The global energy transition towards a renewable energy system offers a wide range of opportunities to transform the energy sector, including creating opportunities for social and gender equality. Gender equality, along with a wider sharing of the benefits from the global energy transformation is essential to shaping positive social and economic development outcomes. Women provide valuable perspectives on key decisions, from investment priorities to project design.

Realizing the importance of gender equality and the unprecedented opportunities of women in renewable field, 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 renewable energy sector also the future trend and opportunities for woman in this sector.

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, EGEEC, ENGRET representatives will take due consideration of gender concerns by encouraging the suggestion and nomination of female speakers and participants.

In addition, the project proponents will ensure that the evaluation forms to be distributed at the end of the Workshop will include information on gender for disaggregating of data for project assessment and will help in evaluation of specific responses of women and men.

PO is committed to collect sex-disaggregated data for all speakers and participants (and not only the APEC funded) from the project event. This data will be included as part of the submission of the Completion Report to the Secretariat when the project completes and will serve to guide future POs on their own gender parity targets. This data will be used to assess compliance with the project’s gender targets at the conclusion of the project, with performance data shared with APEC members.

PO expected that at least 40% of Workshop participants and at least 30% speakers/ moderators will be female.

POs will regularly monitor the progress of the activities under this project and ensure milestones described in the timelines above are achieved. PO will provide detailed progress reporting in the Monitoring Report and comply to timely submissions to the Secretariat for effective monitoring of the project’s implementation. 

Estimated indicators: Monitoring Report 

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. 

Estimated indicators: Number of speakers/ participants, number of participating economies and diversification of speakers/ participants. Organizers expect the participation of at least 10 economies, at least 8-10 speakers/ moderators/ panellists; at least 7 economies will participate in this Workshop; at least 20% of Workshop participants will be international. The organiser will select the speakers from travel eligible economies who can control the disease and take quarantine measures. Balance distribution of participant groups among the officials in renewable 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. 

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. 

The survey will be distributed to the participants at the end of the Workshop. In the survey, there will be evaluation questionnaires rating the satisfaction on substance, speakers, logistic arrangements, etc, as well as an open question for further recommendations/improvements. Organisers expect the satisfaction will be 90%. Organizers expected that at least 6 recommendations will be made at this Workshop. 

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

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.

Linkages

Engagement: APEC EWG will take the leading role in implementing this project. 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) to get inputs and enhance engagements.

Previous Work: Many APEC project have touched on the subject related to Renewable Energy (RE). For instance: project EWG 15 2018S APEC/NARUC Workshop on Supporting Renewable Energy Integration and Energy Efficiency through Effective Regulation has focused on the critical role of energy regulation in driving progress toward meeting renewable energy and energy efficiency goals in APEC member economies and project EWG 03 2019A – APEC Multi-stakeholder Workshop on Promoting Renewable and Clean Energy (RCE) Policies, etc.

The workshop will build on the project “Lessons Learned from Promotion Mechanisms Focused on Boosting Energy Solutions in Remote Areas (EWG 17 2018A)” held in Chile in October 2019. The project EWG 17 2018A presents a range of energy solutions applied on remote areas as well as lesson learned, set of recommendations from these solutions. The scope of project is applicable to all kinds of energy. EWG 17 2018A did not discuss in detail the linkage between renewable energy and remote area development. 

Realising the scarcity of project discussing the linkage between RE and rural area development. For this project, organisers intend to focus on this topic. The main objectives of project is to help relevant economies and stakeholders share information and experiences in using renewable energy to promote rural/remote area development as well as develop a set of recommendations on renewable energy policies for policy makers. The objectives include but not limited to build awareness and capacity on for participants, especially the regulators, policy makers and businesses working on existing work in renewable energy sector and linkage with remote development; discuss on how to create the right market condition for optimal result; identify renewable energy linkages with rural development. There will be a discussion about the challenges and opportunities when policies makers and business work on this field. Session on recommendation will suggest renewable energy legislation and business models which support the linkages, etc. These topics have not been covered in the previous projects.

APEC’s Comparative AdvantageAPEC 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

APEC economies can take in recommendations and spread the experiences and lessons in a wider range. Experts can make use of results or outcomes of this project 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. 

Besides, Since the beneficiaries of the workshop will be public officials, business involved in renewable energy sector and rural development, it is important that these stakeholders share the final report which include best practice and recommendations come out of the workshop to other relevant stakeholders (officials, businessman) and transform it to promote linkage between renewable energy and remote area in their economies. 

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

The summary report will suggest next steps (future APEC Workshop, seminar, events, capacity building, study, research, survey etc.) based on the discussions of the Workshop. Such summary report will be submitted to EWG. 

The evaluation survey to be conducted 6 months after the completion of the Workshop to assess the achievement of the project’s outcomes (for example: adaption of policy/ action recommendations from the Workshop, adoption or utilization of suggested draft renewable energy legislation models which support the linkages between renewable energy and rural development etc.) in the respective economies and organizations. The results, where applicable, to be included in the Completion Report or during the EWG meetings when Viet Nam makes reports about the results of this project.
