05 February 2016

The seminar-workshop on energy efficient technologies in the Philippines’ industry was jointly organised by ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) and The Energy Conservation Center, Japan (ECCJ), under the ASEAN-Japan Energy Efficiency Partnership (AJEEP) Programme Scheme 2. Hosted by the Philippines’ Department of Energy (DOE), the seminar-workshop took place in Manila, the Philippines, on 5 February 2016. This activity aims to enhance the promotion of energy efficiency & conservation (EE&C) by private sector through energy audits.  The event was also a platform for information sharing on EE&C policy, best practices, new efficient technologies, as well as cooperation between ASEAN Member States (AMS) and Japan.

Participants learned about the outlines and outcomes of the AJEEP programme, about Japan’s and the Philippines’ policies and measures on EE&C in the private sector, about best practices and success stories in buildings and the private sector in the Philippines. Previously on 1 February 2016, the AJEEP Scheme 2 in the Philippines provided the follow-up on the EE&C improvement of Marquee Mall in Angeles City. Then on 2-4 February 2016, ECCJ experts conducted an energy audit at Central Azucarera Don Pedro Inc., a sugar factory in Batangas. The activity consists of the following approaches: a) data collection; b) survey visit of the factory; c) analysis and exploration for energy conservation measures; and d) presentation of outcomes and recommendation for EE&C project realisation. The activity was participated by the factory’s management staff, its engineers as well as government officers, and facilitated by ECCJ experts. (AJ)
