Slide 10 3.AfDB Clean Energy For Development Investment Framework 3 Pillars: Increase Energy Access in Sub- Saharan Africa Transition to Low Carbon Economy Adaptation to Climate Change
Slide 11 Energy in Africa Gas Flaring in Gulf of Guinea
Slide 12 Energy in Africa Africa has 13% of global population but consumes 5% of global energy and 3% of global electricity Only 23% of population in SSA and 91% in North Africa has access to electricity yet world average is 73% Lowest energy consumption per capita of 0.7 toe compared to world average of 1.6 toe Traditional biomass (wood fuel and charcoal) contributes to over 82% of energy used in SSA-less South Africa Between 2000 and 2050, absolute number of people depending on biomass expected to rise from 583 to 823 million
Slide 13 Energy in Africa Abundant resources available (hydro, oil, natural gas, biomass) but not developed Unevenly distributed resources yet poor interstate energy trade. (Oil and Natural gas are in North and West Africa and Coal in Southern Africa) Energy fuel/source reservesconsumption / year Reserves / consumption Oil (in Mtoe) years Natural Gas (in trillion m 3 ) years Coal (in Mt) years
Slide 14 Energy and development nexus Energy is central to all developmental interventions Energy is a pre-requisite for poverty alleviation and attainment of the MDGs The poor are forced to pay a higher price for their energy. The price is paid in form of: Human time and labour Economic cost Health costs (mainly indoor air pollution), and Social and gender impact of energy services.
Slide Clean Energy Investment Framework Two pronged approach to Climate Change: Clean energy and low-carbon economy Focus on cleaner utilisation of fossil fuels Increased used of renewables Attention to increasing access to energy Adaptation to climate change Climate proofing of investments Integration of adaptation into project cycle
Slide Clean Energy Investment Framework Major energy challenges : strengthening energy security for macroeconomic stability, improving energy services for economic growth and better quality of life, and reducing environmental and human health threats from energy production and use. Low carbon drive must not have additional cost on the poor Shared but differentiated responsibilities
Slide Clean Energy Investment Framework Strategies clean energy Clean energy for economic growth and sustainable development Low-cost and high-impact solutions Project Development Fund to assist the development of clean energy projects Changes in national energy fiscal and regulatory policies
Slide Clean Energy Investment Framework Adaptation challenges: Human-induced change: combustion of fossil fuels & land management practices Major challenges to Africa The poor are most vulnerable, having the least means to adapt Ensure long-term adaptation strategies compatible with short term impacts
Slide Clean Energy Investment Framework Adaptation strategies: Integrating adaptation in PRSPs, Country Strategy Papers and project cycle Disaster preparedness improvement through proactive actions – early warning systems Development of tools and checklists Research and Development
Slide Clean Energy Investment Framework Investment needs are huge $ 300 billion per year to meet rising energy demands in developing countries $ 60 billion / year additionally for a low-carbon option $ 40 billion / year as cost of adaptation Public and private resources need to be mobilised New financial instruments needed
Slide 21 Pillar 1: Energy Access - AfDB Priorities Enabling environment for maximising private participation Mobilisation of financing and private participation Electricity for the MDGs Energy access for rural development Energy for urban development Renewable energy and energy efficiency Transportation sector fuel efficiency and emissions; and Facilitating countries access to CDM
Slide 22 Pillar 2 : Clean Energy and RE/EE, AfDB Priorities >50MW: Hydropower, Geothermal power, Co- generation, Windpower; Biofuel production. <50MW: Promote renewables aimed at income generating activities in the agro/forest industrial sector such as co-generation and small hydro. <5MW: Solar water heaters, windpumps and solar PVs use in remote rural dispensaries, schools, commercial wildlife and coastal tourism-linked enterprises. < 1kW (household level):Improved biofuel cookstoves in countries where charcoal is a major fuel and indoor air pollution benefits.
Slide 23 The Private Sector Department of the AfDB focuses mainly to develop (a) the wind energy area (b) the small size hydropower (c) bio-fuel, (d) Geothermal, and (e) Co-generation The Middelgrund wind farm – Copenhagen - Denmark 30 MW hydropower - Tunisia

Slide 31 COFAMOSA Ethanol Project Under the proposed COFAMOSA Irrigation Project, the Government of Mozambique intends to develop an area of 29,000 ha for irrigated land under sugar cane for sugar and ethanol production. The goal of the project is to reduce poverty levels through increased exports of sugar and ethanol from Mozambique to the region and beyond. Based on the preliminary studies, the project aims to: develop 29,000 ha of irrigated land in possibly 3 phases, over a period of ten years (first and second phase 10,000 ha each and the third phase of 9,000 ha) re-settle over 500 farmers in the project area make use of already existing investment in Corumana Dam and available good irrigation soils; create 18,000 jobs (70%) of economically active people in the area); and make permanent impact in districts of Moamba and Magude and the overall Mozambican national economy. Currently the Bank is funding, through the African Water Facility a consultancy srevice to undertake an integrated feasibility study for the envisaged project. The Study will commence early next year
Slide 34 Types of Carbon Project Eligible for CDM Hydroelectric power offsetting the need for coal- or gas-fired generation Extending grid to reach customers currently using diesel or kerosene Reducing CO 2 and possibly methane by generating energy and bio- fuels from sugar industry by-products -- bagasse and molasses Replacing firewood/kerosene/cowdung with biogas from livestock and human wastes Extracting methane from landfills or avoiding its generation trough composting organic waste in urban dumpsites Extracting methane from disposal of sewage sludge Capturing No 2, a powerful greenhouse gas, from fertilizer production Sequestering CO 2 by tree planting, small plantations, land restoration (limited capacity to buy though)
Slide 35 ADB CDM Facility (1) ADB intends to establish a CDM facility Objectives: Integrate climate change in Bank operations Help remove reg. bottlenecks to clean energy and scale up investment in modern technologies: Suppressed grid energy demand and Off-grid energy access Modern waste management Afforestation and reforestation projects Build carbon capacities in public and private sectors Pioneer innovative approaches that combine multiple stream of revenues from carbon offsets, micro credit, weather insurance, etc
Slide 36 ADB CDM Activities technical assistance for identification and design of CDM-eligible projects, preparation of PDD; development of new methodologies for programmatic or bundling of CDM opportunities for small-scale regional projects; technical studies to identify interested countries range of prospective projects and programs eligible
Slide 37 ADB CDM Activities (cont) policy assistance to address regulatory barriers to the development and execution of CDM projects; capacity-building and awareness raising by organising training programs and information dissemination; and strengthening national designated authorities (DNA). AfDB Carbon facility would be announced formally at the 13 th UNFCCC CC in Bali, Dec 2007
Slide 38 Pillar 3: Adaptation: AfDB Priorities Promote development and use of climate risk assessment and management methods to minimize climate change and variability risks Application of climate risk screening tools to development programs and investment projects Support mainstreaming of climate issues into key regional, national, local and sectoral planning, policies and decision making processes,(e.g PRSPs, etc) Plan to introduce AfDB Policy on Climate Risk Management & Adaptation
Slide 39 Climate Information for Development in Africa Objective: Improve the availability and use of climate information and services in support of sustainable development and achievement of the MDGs. Raising Policy awareness of politicians, planners and the public for broad ownership, support and commitment to adaptation to climate variability and change. Climate Risk Management for strategic MDGs development planning, sectoral management, livelihood strategies and disaster risk reduction. Climate Services for the use of MDGs decision-makers in government, the private sector and civil society. Observations, data management and infrastructure upgrading to provide essential data for climate services, risk management and policy development. The results are to be achieved in part by drawing on, and strengthening the capacity of existing climate institutions in Africa.
Slide 40 Examples of climate risk management operations (3) African Development Bank: Malawi, agriculture Climate Adaptation for Rural Livelihoods and Agriculture (CARLA) US$ 3.3 million added to US$ 24 million baseline
