"OLADE and IDB have a long history of joint cooperation projects," were the words mentioned yesterday March 22nd, by Morgan Doyle, IDB representative during his speech at the meeting, which took place at OLADE to hold a Technical Agreement between the two agencies.
The Agreement is to develop the regional project for Strengthening the Energy Information Management for Sustainable Development in LAC under the Regional Public Goods Initiative of the IDB.
OLADE's information systems were recently released for public access. This is relevant fact as to the quantity and quality of energy data the Organization provides to the community linked to the sector. To this end, Morgan Doyle confirmed that this system is a "public good" and therefore the IDB is willing to support this initiative.
The information to be added to the system corresponds to the dimensions of gender equality and energy; energy and climate change; energy efficiency; energy access and participation of renewable energy in a reliable and complete manner for its timely dissemination.
For such purposes, 11 countries in the region have shown their support, whose contribution will be through the appointment of technical professionals for a period of 3 years. This contribution will support the infrastructure diagnostic activities, capabilities and information to have standardized methodologies and data collection forms on Sustainable Energy Development for Information Management in the LAC region. Furthermore, works will be performed according to the expansion and improvement of the Energy Information System, which will include the review, standardization and validation of existing statistical data, compatibility of regional energy chain, gender and energy, energy efficiency, climate change, renewable energy, utilities and energy access. Additionally, it will contemplate training for the information generators and system administrators, and the implementation of public access to energy information.
This project will also count on the cooperation of other institutions such as CIER, ECLAC and the IEA.
