The Barrier Removal to the Cost Effective Development and Implementation of Energy Efficiency Standards and Labeling Project (BRESL) is aimed at rapidly accelerating the adoption and implementation of energy standards and labels (ES&L) in Asia, and in so doing bring about energy savings from the use of energy efficient appliances/equipment. The project also facilitates harmonization of test procedures, standards and labels among developing countries in Asia, when appropriate, starting with the six countries, Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Pakistan, Thailand and Vietnam as BRESL Participating Countries (PCs). This assignment focuses on assessing the outcomes and effectiveness of BRESL and analyzing strengths and weaknesses in order to build on opportunities and to overcome barriers. This is to help improve overall project productivity and enhance its effectiveness and sustainability.

Our services include the following tasks:

  • Review all relevant documents and materials.
  • Assess project on the five key criteria: relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability, and impact of the project.
  • Analyze the project structure and operation including assessing its financial data.
  • Conduct consultations with key stakeholders.
  • Assess the impact of a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS)

The objective of the assignment is to develop a Regional Efficient Lighting Strategy through an integrated policy approach. The main output of this will be a comprehensive, accurate and regionally coordinated Pacific Efficient Lighting Strategy document, the contents of which are to be based on the outline developed by en.lighten (Developing a National or Regional Efficient Lighting Strategy – A step-by-step guide for policy makers, January 2014).

IIEC undertook the consultancy work in close collaboration with SPC’s Energy Programme, UNEP, the PELS Project Steering Committee and other relevant stakeholders. The specific tasks include:

  • Review documents such as the Regional Efficient Lighting Status Report and regional strategy documents available for other countries, consult relevant regional and national stakeholder to identify regional and national priority objectives and activities for grid and off-grid EE lighting
  • Participate and present work plan for the development of a Regional Efficient Lighting Strategy and summary of priorities based on consultations and relevant document appraisals at the Inception Workshop.
  • Develop the final Pacific Efficient Lighting Strategies

IIEC is responsible for supporting the implementation of EE measures in 5 PDMCs (Cook Islands, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tonga and Vanuatu) towards achieving the overall goal of 10% reduction in average monthly energy consumption in the residential, commercial and public sectors and establish the policy and implementation frameworks to move towards the goals of reducing fossil fuel imports. This involves the development of energy database, national energy policies, EE best practices including building codes and capacity building, large-scale EE projects, information dissemination and awareness and leveraging with other regional energy programs. For more information, please visit PEEP2's project website at www.ee-pacific.net.

IIEC performed the tasks as follows:

  • Development of Energy Use Database
  • Development of EE Policies and Procedures
  • Implementation of Energy Efficiency Programs including EE Street Lighting Program, EE Lighting Program for Residential, Commercial and Public Sector, EE Measures in Hotels and Commercial Sector, EE Measures in the Public Sector
  • Information Dissemination and Public Awareness

The objective of this project is to re-establish and continue the development of a DSM Program for the electric utilities. The existing DSM Programs in the region have become a low priority and are implemented on a less coordinated manner since the completion of the UNDP Power Sector Project in 1996. With the recent adoption of Integrated Resource Planning, the need arises among electric utilities to evaluate an achievable DSM potential in order to come up with plausible least-cost supply scenarios in the future. To meet this objective, the project evaluates the current status of DSM activities in the region and uses this as inputs to design an appropriate DSM program and implementation methodology for the electric utilities. This project includes a demonstration component which showcases the process of identifying, designing, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating 2 to 3 DSM projects.

Service Provided:

  • Assessment of DSM Potential
  • Energy Auditing Training
  • Program Design
  • Program Implementation
  • Program Monitoring and Evaluation

CEEP was a 3-year project to improve the efficiency of energy use in India and China by increasing the market availability and affordability of energy-efficient copper-intensive technologies.  Its four interrelated objectives were:

  • To transfer technology and foster indigenous production of at least one copper-intensive, energy-efficient product in India and China.
  • To increase the use of this product through training of project developers, financial institutions, and end-users.
  • To foster demand by establishing low-interest financing mechanisms and promoting use.
  • To disseminate the lessons learned from the work in India and China to other developing countries in Asia, Latin America, Africa, and Central and Eastern Europe.

IIEC completed comprehensive market assessments of the potential of various copper-intensive energy-efficient technologies including motor, transformer and ballast. It also identified energy-efficient motor and transformer as the target technologies for the Chinese and Indian markets, respectively. At the end of the three-year project, IIEC organized 4 regional workshops in Asia, Africa, Europe and South America and the full proceedings of the 4 workshops were made available in CD-ROM. A sample of the CD-ROM proceedings is shown below.

IIEC developed projects for Thailand, and the Philippines under the framework of AJI funded by the US Department of Energy. Structured for eligibility for Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), projects that were considered include  energy efficiency improvement in distribution circles, electricity generation from sewage treatment, use of fuel ethanol and alternate vehicle technology, and rice-husk cogeneration.

In the Philippines, IIEC helped the Cagayan Electric Power and Light Company (CEPALCO) identify funding sources for its Energy-Efficient Street lighting Project. The project would mitigate 35,429 tons of CO2 during the 25-year project life. In Thailand, IIEC collaborated with Thai industries and commercial building owners to showcase energy efficiency projects for CDM.
