A broad range of stakeholders gathered in Jeju at a March 28 regional consultation workshop under the APEC Project: “Reducing Losses in Power Distribution through Improved Efficiency of Distribution Transformers (DTs)” (EWG 05 2016A). Participants included representatives from government agencies, electric utilities, certification and test standard organizations, the APEC Energy Working Group, and distribution transformer manufacturers in APEC economies -- including guests from non-member economies e.g., the Ministry of Industry, Myanmar and the Electricite du Laos (EdL). The workshop was organized by the China Standard Certification Company (CSC), in partnership with the International Copper Association (ICA) and IIEC. It was sponsored by the APEC Energy Efficiency Sub-fund and ICA, and co-sponsored by four APEC economies (USA, Chinese Taipei, Thailand and the Philippines).

IIEC was contracted under United for Efficiency (U4E) – a public-private partnership led by UN Environment and other international organizations – to help Myanmar move its market to energy-efficient appliances and equipment. The IIEC team assisted the Ministry of Industry (MOI), Myanmar in conducting a situation analysis and preparing a CEO endorsement request document for the “Leapfrogging Myanmar’s market to high efficiency lighting and appliances” project.

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). 

In October 2015, IIEC was contracted by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to carry out a lighting market assessment to evaluate the opportunity for harmonizing lighting standards and other policies in the ASEAN region. The assessment was conducted as part of the ASEAN SHINE initiative, which promotes higher efficiency lighting equipment in the ASEAN community through a partnership between the UNEP-GEF’s en.lighten initiative and ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE), with financial support from the European Union’s SWITCH-Asia programme and the Australian Government.
