A. Project Title: Development for Renewable Energy Applications Mainstreaming and Market Sustainability (DREAMS)
B. Project Description
The DREAMS project aims to lower GHG emissions from the power sector to promote and facilitate the commercialization of renewable energy (RE) markets by removing barriers to enhance investments in RE-based power generation projects. This target will result in direct emissions reductions of 205,181 tons of CO2eq. Twenty thousand (20,000) sitio-based homes will have access to renewable energy sources.
The DREAMS contain four components that will increase RE investments and a more significant proportion of RE in the energy mix. The following are the components:
The Department of Energy (DOE) implements the project and is ultimately responsible for the project's success. The GEF contributes to the project's funding, and the UNDP serves as the GEF Executing Agency. The Renewable Energy Management Bureau is in charge of carrying out all aspects of the project (REMB).
A Project Support Group (PSG) of technical staff/specialists from other DOE Bureaus and divisions has been formed to provide technical advice in implementing the activities, including monitoring and evaluation. A Project Steering Committee has been created to act as a policy and decision-making body for project implementation.
A Project Management Unit can be found on-site in the DOE Compound. As well as serving as REMB Director, PMU is led by a National Project Director (NPD). The DREAMS Project Management Office is run by a Project Manager and a team of support personnel. The DOE's PMO is in Taguig, Metro Manila, inside the DOE's office.
