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.

IIEC assisted the Philippine Team of the US Country Studies Program in the study of climate change issues and options by providing technical and policy information for their consideration and by facilitating public dialogues on the options available.

In Thailand, IIEC assisted the Thailand Country Studies team to scope possible mitigation options related to energy efficiency and renewable resources.

And in China, IIEC provided methodologies for project identification and evaluation to the Chinese Country Study Program Team (CSPT) in relation to greenhouse gas mitigation. IIEC also assisted the CSPT conduct an economic analysis of its project on compressed natural gas promotion.

This project involved an assessment of the market and the promotion of the use of energy-efficient motors.   IIEC leveraged other activities to oversee specific activities in India and to provide support for Motor Challenge activities in other Asian countries. 

Important activities included:
- Building in-country support among key Indian organizations to participate in the Indian Motor Challenge Program by:
  1. Arranging a roundtable meeting between Indian industry representatives and key organizations in India;
  2. Providing technical advice on the availability and applicability of existing Motor Challenge materials to the Indian market.
- Identifying several key organizations in China that are active in promoting energy efficiency that may be interested in working with DOE on a Motor Challenge Program in China.
- Coordinating with local organizations in the Philippines on using Motor Challenge materials and organizing follow-up activities such as a Motor Challenge workshop.

In this project, IIEC investigated opportunities for voluntary programs and profitable reductions in greenhouse gas emissions in key developing countries in Asia.

IIEC-Asia collected and housed information on US Voluntary Programs and relevant materials on energy use, efficiency investment climate, and energy situation in the target countries. IIEC also created libraries of information about US Voluntary Programs and other related energy efficiency efforts globally. The library in IIEC-Asia now houses over 100 journal titles, and 3,000 volumes, plus a collection of over 100 topical articles. The library answers requests for information from around the region and has hosted students from regional universities doing energy policy research.

IIEC-Asia also developed a database of individuals and organizations that would be key to planning and implementing voluntary programs. IIEC-Asia's database now contains more than 3,500 records of relevant companies, organizations, and individuals. In addition, IIEC Asia has written "policy scans" on the Philippines, Indonesia, and Vietnam, identifying the current status and future direction for energy efficiency policies and regulations in each country. IIEC also published "Examples in Action: Sustainable Energy Experiences in Developing and Transition Countries."

IIEC-Asia furthermore developed and implemented a strategy for establishing a set of target countries, engaging key constituencies in each country to set program direction, describing potentially viable voluntary programs with theses constituents, and producing proposals for outside funding from sources such as E-7, GEF, and AIJ. To date, a computer monitor voluntary program in Thailand and a Green Buildings voluntary program in the Philippines have been funded.

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.
