The Lao Demand Side Management and Energy Efficiency Project (DSM/EE) Phase II concluded on the 31st of March 2015 with a final workshop held in Vientiane Capital. IIEC and Electricite du Lao (EdL) co-hosted the final seminar of the DSM/EE Phase II, with funding from the World Bank.

IIEC India was recently awarded a contract by World Bank (WB) to organize a high level knowledge exchange visit on energy efficient street lighting to South Asia. The visit is scheduled to take place during May 2015, and will bring delegates from India to South Korea and Thailand.

IIEC is helping the Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy to develop a M&V guide for Street Lighting Projects in India. The main purpose of this guide is to make the M&V process transparent and practical, while also being suited to India’s unique conditions.

This November, IIEC celebrated its first 30 years by welcoming energy and climate change experts from around the world to gather in Washington, DC and discuss the major challenges and solutions facing the global energy landscape. The Symposium featured keynote speeches by Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts, and the executive director of the International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC), Benoit Lebot. Two panels led animated conversations about what approaches are working best in the climate and energy arena, and how to extend results to the people and places that need them most.
