IIEC’s Experience in Energy Efficiency & Demand Side Management

At a Glance:

IIEC is at the forefront of planning and implementing global Energy Efficiency (EE) and Demand-Side Management (DSM) programs. Our recent experience extends to Asia, Africa and the Pacific Islands and includes EE and DSM policies, program design, implementation, and Measurement and Verification (M&V). The projects we implement deliver significant amounts of verifiable energy and demand savings that have been acknowledged by host agencies and funders.

Our Experience:

We take a comprehensive approach to implementing EE and DSM projects. Our experts start with focused load research and detailed energy audits, allowing them to identify opportunities, technology options and proper baselines for verifying program impacts. The implementation phase includes procuring equipment that meets the highest international standards while remaining adaptable to local conditions. Our M&V procedures conform to those followed by the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) and the United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change (UNFCCC). Through this approach, we develop implementation models that can be used for large-scale replication both nationwide and in other countries.

The Challenge:

Lack of generation capacity is extremely common in developing countries, particularly in Asia and Africa. This hinders economic development due to inadequate and unreliable power supply. Providing affordable and reliable energy is a key challenge for most electric utilities, and Energy Efficiency (EE) and Demand-Side Management (DSM) techniques are key solutions for addressing this challenge. Even though it has been proven that saving 1MW of demand through EE measures is more cost effective than installing 1MW of generation capacity, demand savings take a longer time to achieve. In order to address these issues, we have developed a number of implementation models that produce EE and DSM out- comes with a short lead-time.
