Energy Efficiency Global Forum

IIEC is establishing the Asia Pacific Urban Energy Association (APUEA) to support the development of sustainable urban energy systems in the Asia Pacific region. This initiative is consistent with IIEC’s mission of promoting sustainable energy and environmental solutions in developing and emerging economies.

APUEA logoSimilar initiatives to promote sustainable urban energy systems have been launched in North America and Europe, and feedback from the Asia Pacific energy sector points to a great need for such an Association in the Asia Pacific as well — the fastest growing region in terms of economy, urbanization, and energy consumption.

The IIEC is launching this Initiative in response to requests by international agencies to support the development of sustainable urban energy systems in the Asia Pacific region. To develop such systems—a combination of renewable energies, smart grids, district heating and district cooling technologies—there is a critical need for cross sectoral coordination to address energy demand, energy infrastructure, and environmental issues in the world’s rapidly growing cities. As a non-governmental organization with more than three decades of experience carrying out clean energy programs worldwide, and with regional offices in Asia, IIEC is well placed to host such an Association.

This Initiative will be launched on 6th June 2017 at the Asia Clean Energy Forum, hosted by ADB in Manila.

IIEC-India — in partnership with the Carbon Trust and India’s Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) — has designed a national-level fund to support energy efficiency in industry. The new National Industrial Energy Efficiency Fund (NIEEF) is a sub-fund being created under the National Clean Energy Fund (NCEF). The NIEEF defines how the NCEF’s resources can be deployed to support a range of energy efficient technologies on their journey from technology development to deployment. An additional objective of the project is to facilitate interactions between British energy efficiency product and service providers, and potential Indian industrial customers and distributors -- facilitating information exchange and building future business opportunities.

IIEC worked with the Carbon Trust and IamSMEofIndia — a leading micro, small and medium enterprise (MSME) industry association — to organize an event on 5th April 2017. The event brought together an extensive audience of Indian MSME business owners to hear presentations from and interact with leading energy efficiency technology providers from the UK.

As part of an ongoing cooperation with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR), the Jordan Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Fund (JREEEF), and the United States Agency for International Development Energy Sector Capacity Building Activity (USAID ESCB) convened two one-day consultation workshops on January 31 and February 1, 2017, with the commercial and industrial sectors to present the rationale for a mandatory energy audit policy for large energy consumers and discuss how it will benefit participating commercial and industrial companies. These consultation workshops were co-sponsored with the Amman Chamber of Commerce (ACC) and the Jordan Chamber of Industry (JCI). 

ADB releases "Knowledge and Power: Lessons from ADB Energy Projects" - This publication comprises of an overview of the energy sector and 15 case stories from different subregions and subsectors in Asia, focusing on ADB-wide project-level knowledge to promote cross-departmental and cross-DMC learning. Case study samples of promoting energy efficiency e.g. The Philippine Energy Efficiency Project (PEEP): Lighting Up the Philippines in an Efficient Way, and other cases in China and Indonesia.
