Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

Review the definition and accuracy of the objectives and expected results, in order to have more precise and specific indicators for the remainder of the execution period. For example, update the indicators for the NAMAs already formulated; incorporate effectiveness indicators for long-term follow-up that NAMAs will have; align technical and social objectives, in terms of indicators of change, trends in the use of innovations and others.

2

Define more clearly the scope of the Project's intervention in relation to convergent or coincident projects and activities in development or recent inception, in order to avoid duplication or overlap of efforts and responsibilities. In particular, make a conceptual and technical clarification of the relationship between the NAMA and the Project with the quantification of direct and indirect emissions linked to other energy projects and activities. This work can be done through the formation of a technical group with the entities involved (MInistry of Energy, Ministry of Environment, OSINERGMIN) and the Project team, in order to obtain lessons learned for future similar projects.

3

Requesti a cost-free implementation of the implementation period, justified both in unforeseen start delays and in the relative efficiency in the implementation of substantial project components (inventories, baselines, NAMA documents and protocols MRV); as well as an analysis of its impact and relevance within the framework of the country's National Domestic Contributions (NDCs).

4

Seek the expansion of the technical team in charge of the implementation of the Project, with the inclusion proposed by the Coordination, and which is deemed appropriate: personnel specialized in information and communications, gender and climate change, and electrical transport, by NAMA that most requires inter-agency coordination support.

5

Conform, with the endorsement of the CDP, multisectoral technical support groups or committees for each NAMA with periodic sessions, and schedule roadmaps until the end of the Project and with extension until 2030, in terms of what is expected as impact and needs of tracing.

6

To coordinate as soon as possible with the Office of Planning and Presuueto of the Ministry of Energy and Mines and the Ministries of Economics and Finance the early formulation and programming of the incorporation of NAMAs into the Budgets, in order to achieve this during the period of Implementation of the Project.

7

Expand the scope of communication and information of the Project, both through the website and the call for workshops, briefings, newsletters or monthly progress fact sheets, formal visits and invitations to guilds and companies, and others Media. To this end, seek the support of minem's senior management and other ministries and their institutions, in particular those that make up the Project's Governing Council.

8

Establish routines and dedicated meetings of exchange and systematic discussion of the Project team, on the progress and avenues of innovation of actions or amendment of course in the work plans.

9

Conduct studies, in coordination with the executors of the NAMA projects, on the gender and cultural characteristics that may be influencing the implementation of NAMAs (e.g. state of use and operation of the NAMA Photovoltaics, improved kitchens, attitudes of economic or cultural rationalization, etc.).

10

Coordinate, with the sectors and institutions specialized in the subject, the final design of the 'Technical Institute of Women' (now called the 'Energy School for Women' – "e-Women") and its optimization of operation in terms of its management and affiliation, with existing experience (SENCICO, SENATI, and other entities and NGOs).

11

It is essential to have updated information on the energy demand profile, especially at the level of rural families, but also in urban areas, including information on the potential of other natural sources of sustainable energy in the future, involving local governments and organized civil society. The 2017 census should be an important source for this interinstitutional effort; as well as the surveys carried out by the Project.

12

To coordinate with the General Directorate of Energy Efficiency the design of instruments for better planning of access to energy and the development of electrification actions, updating the Rural Energy Plan, in order to order the intervention of the entities involved in the system (NGOs, regional and local governments, among others), to avoid the problems of cost overruns of initiatives and tend to the best use of care opportunities.

 

13

Concentrate efforts on the achievement of the legal and regulatory instruments considered as an enabling condition; to this effect, to increase coordination with OSINERGMIN, and to establish technical dialogues with stakeholders involved in the design of standards and the removal of barriers for their formulation and approval.

14

Expand the coordination and participation of the entities involved - collaborating with OSINERGMIN - for the review of management models, to incorporate indicators of service quality, with minimum standards, tariff structures (BT8 rate); and studies of the causes of delinquency or abandonment of SFV services, which will be part of the MRV protocols, in order to ensure the useful life of the equipment, calculated at 20 years. In this regard, attention should be given to social and organizational aspects and factors - which are often overlooked despite their importance in the introduction and sustainable management of services in rural areas

 

15

Promote collaboration and exchange of experiences with other national and cooperative entities that have experiences and lessons learned in the field of clean cooking, in order to strengthen and make the pilots to be more efficient and instructive. The shared knowledge in this area is vital to project more accurately the emissions avoided, and ensure a sustainable implementation of the activities to be promoted. In this sense, it is essential that the pilots prioritize the formation of local leadership from the beginning, and the local appropriation of both management and direct benefits.

 

16

Promote the appropriation of the NAMA within the framework of the current energy efficiency project in the MINEM, through an organic and permanent interaction of the respective specialists, and the political support of the DGEE; and work more closely with INDECOPI to join efforts and collaboration in the pilots.

 

17

Intensify collaboration with the private sector and microfinance organizations, to design business models appropriate to energy supply and demand, which stimulate and promote the articulation of efforts.

18

Intensify efforts in the positive change of the regulations, and develop a multi-institutional strategy to overcome the remaining barriers and resistances, at the highest political level that limit the development of the RER in the market and its incorporation into the system.

19

Incorporate the Ministry of Transportation to the Project Board of Directors, and actively participate in the discussion of the activities of the Project and its implication in the establishment of the Single Transport Authority and its regulations. In parallel, continue the initial opening and expand it to private and trade organizations linked to transport, for a better design and dissemination of pilots in preparation.
