The ASEAN Japan Energy Efficiency Partnership (AJEEP) is a programme under the ASEAN Senior Officials Meeting on Energy and Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan (SOME-METI) work programme. The ASEAN-Japan EE&C Cooperation was commenced in 2000, with the implementation of Project for Promotion of Energy Efficiency and Conservation (PROMEEC) and Multi-Country Training Programme on Energy Conservation for ASEAN Countries (MTPEC). In 2012, the cooperation continues with the launch of the AJEEP, which is implemented by ACE and the Energy Conservation Center of Japan (ECCJ), in coordination with the ASEAN EE&C-SSN.

In 2016, AJEEP has been stepped up to new phase of the programme, including the new AJEEP Scheme 2.

The new AJEEP Scheme 2 has been implemented since 2016 and focuses on the energy manager trainers’ training. This programme aims to improve the existing training and certification system of energy managers in ASEAN Member States.
