The IIEC is the Technical Assistance Consultant for the Promoting Energy Efficiency in The Pacific: Phase 2 (PEEP2) funded by the Asian Developed Bank (ADB).
The objective of PEEP2 is to improve efficiency in the use of electrical power for consumers in five Pacific developing member countries (PDMCs) - the Cook Islands, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Samoa, Tonga, and Vanuatu - through demand-side energy efficiency improvements in the residential, commercial, and government sectors of each country. The project commenced in November 2011 and is due to conclude in November 2014.
The PEEP2 team conducted two/three days of walk-through energy audit training for selected buildings in Samoa and Papua New Guinea during October 2012.
Approximately 30 people participated in the training activities in Samoa and 20 people participated in Papua New Guinea (see photographs below). The PEEP2 team was interviewed by the local newspaper in Samoa.
These preliminary audits aim to identify the main building areas with most potential for energy savings as well as simple cost-effective measures (i.e. lighting) that could be implemented in a short-timeframe. It will also help provide useful data for the PEEP2 Energy-Use Database and identify potential energy efficiency projects for PEEP2.
