The Asia Standards Project investigated the potential for establishing energy-efficiency standards and energy labeling for electrical appliances and equipment in Asia. Its primary objectives were: (1) to inform international donor agencies about "best bet" technical assistance opportunities for building standards regimes in Latin America and Asia; (2) to provide technical assistance to in-country stakeholders who are building national standards regimes, and  (3) to provide fora to spur intraregional cooperation on standards and international coordination of effort.

Highlights of the project include: (1) the conduct of  training courses for laboratory personnel and energy policy specialists, and numerous seminar and conference presentations (2)  submission of  blueprints for standards regimes (3) holding of  international fora, including the Forum on Asia Regional Cooperation on Energy Efficiency Standards and Labeling in July 1997 in Bangkok, Thailand, cosponsored by five Asian governments and attended by 50 delegates;  (4) preparation of numerous documents, including the proceedings of the July 1997 Forum and the recommendations on the testing procedure harmonization from the July 1997 AGREE roundtable attended by  more than 250 professionals, including international donor agencies,  (5) presentation of  papers at the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy's 1998 Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Building and  the First International Conference on Efficiency in Household Appliances organized by the European Commission.

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

This project assessed the potential for additional use of copper through the promotion of high efficiency equipment.

In 1995, IIEC identified high-efficiency equipment such as electric motors as an option. In 1997, IIEC researched and continued its work on high-efficiency motors and transformers, eventually introducing the Motor Master software to the region's utilities.

IIEC also prepared a report for the Asian Development Bank that provided recommendations to improve transformer efficiency through ADB’s lending policy. In addition, it assisted a Philippine utility in the design of a high-efficiency motor incentive program. As a result of this, the country’s National Power Corporation committed to offer a motor efficiency program as part of their DSM package.

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

The objective of this project assignment is to assist the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Sub-sector Network (EE&C-SSN), the implementing body coordinated by the ASEAN Center for Energy (ACE). This came after the ASEAN Sub-Sector Network on Energy Efficiency & Conservation (EE&C-SSN) has received a mandate from the ASEAN Energy Ministers to proceed with and implement a regional energy certification labelling programme for high-efficiency equipment. The focus is on magnetic ballasts labels, followed by refrigerators and air conditioners and this project aimed at supporting EE&C-SSN in the design and implementation of S&L programs for ballasts in ASEAN.

Service Provided:

  • Establishment of a regional and corresponding national working groups for the ASEAN ballast energy labeling and the ASEAN S&L Network
  • Conduct an appraisal of the ASEAN Ballast Market
  • Develop an ASEAN energy performance testing procedure for Ballast
  • Organization of a study tour for ASEAN and APEC representatives to Australia to learn about establishment and implementation of ballast MEPS in Australia
  • Coordination of round-robin testing for fluorescent lamp ballasts in 6 testing laboratories in Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and China

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

The IFC/GEF Efficient Lighting Initiative (ELI) was designed  to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by increasing the penetration of energy-efficient lighting technologies. The ELI countries were Argentina, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Latvia, Peru, the Philippines, and South Africa. ELI was funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and was implemented by the International Finance Corporation (IFC). It began in 1999 and  the seven county programs were completed in late 2003, but a Next Generation of ELI continued to provide services to support the use of high-quality energy-efficient lighting.

Under this program, IIEC provided support to the Cross-Cutting Activities (CCA) for the Efficient Lighting Initiative (ELI) which included general maintenance of the Structured Learning Facility (SLF), technical support to the ELI country teams on the random testing procedures, certification of products applications from lighting manufacturers, and maintenance of the ELI website (www.efficientlighting.net).

IIEC also worked with the Lighting and Appliances Testing Laboratory in the Philippines which performed the tests, using new equipment provided by ELI in exchange for  services in testing  randomly-selected samples of 49 ELI-qualified CFL models from 7 countries for compliance with the ELI specifications.

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

The Collaborative Labeling and Appliance Standards Program (CLASP) was formed in 1999 by IIEC, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and the Alliance to Save Energy (the Alliance). CLASP’s sole CLASP is to increase the design, implementation, and enforcement of energy efficiency standards and labels for appliances, equipment, and/or lighting products in developing and transitional countries.  It works through partnerships with agencies and institutions in developing and transitional countries and engages a variety of policy and technical specialists from around the world.

 

With support from USAID, the UN Foundation, the Energy Foundation, and US DOE, CLASP  developed regionally-applicable tools, conducted regional workshops, and provided technical support to partner countries. In each participating country, the project resulted in enhanced institutional capacity for implementing standards and labeling programs, increased production of energy-efficient products by manufacturers, improved average energy efficiency of appliances and equipment, significant reductions in electricity consumption, and lower energy-related emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants.

 

CLASP formed a partnership with the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN/DESA) to undertake a major labels and standards project funded by the UN Foundation. UN/DESA has an active program in promoting energy standards and labeling programs, has worked on energy standards with six Arab countries and participated in lighting and refrigerator efficiency projects in China. The UN/DESA partnership brought with it the participation of UN Development Programme field offices and several UN Regional Commissions.

 

IIEC has led a team of S&L technical experts and web programmers in developing S&L database for CLASP, www.CLASPonline.org.  IIEC has also managed, and supervised team members to keep the database up-to-date.  In 2005, IIEC managed and coordinated the whole integration process for CLASP and APEC-ESIS and create a global S&L database for both websites.
