Green Independent Power Producers (IPPs) for Southeast Asia

The Green IPP project explored the concept of procuring renewable energy and energy-efficient resources as an alternative to conventional coal-fired power plants in Southeast Asia.

This project considered a hypothetical 150-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant and compared it to 150 MW worth of resources supplied by renewable energy and energy efficiency. In developing the concept, IIEC used a hypothetical mix of renewable energy and energy efficiency measures while taking into consideration the cost of each and resource availability in the region. IIEC compared the following parameters in the study: costs including externalities, finance and transaction costs, and employment effects. The project provided information on financing mechanisms for independent power projects, as well as sources of financing for renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in Southeast Asia. It also recommended a policy framework to support renewable energy and energy efficiency in a restructured utility environment.
