Project Description and Summary of Services






This project explored new concepts for procuring sustainable energy resources in developing countries. Due to a high level of interest in power-sector restructuring and the support from the Philippine AID mission, the Philippines was selected as the target country. IIEC (1) gave presentations on and discussed the IRB concept with the staff and managers at the Asian Development Bank, the Philippine Department of Energy, the Philippine Energy Regulatory Board, the National Power Corporation, MERALCO, CEPALCO, etc. and (2) convened a round table discussion in August 1998 on the IRB and the then draft Omnibus Energy Bill with representatives from most of the above institutions. As a spin-off to this IRB project, IIEC worked with Greenpeace International to develop a policy concept called Green Independent Power Producers for Southeast Asia. IIEC prepared a detailed and well-documented report on the concept, which Greenpeace presented at the Renewable Energy for Asia and the Pacific (REAP) conference in Shanghai in October 1998.
