Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

One of the key objectives of the Philippines Energy Efficiency Project (PEEP) is the demonstration of the societal benefits of implementation of a series of energy efficiency projects in the commercial, residential and public sectors. In addition it addresses a key public health issue of residual mercury that is likely to increase through the implementation of EE projects.

The Philippines Efficient Lighting Market Transformation Project (PELMATP) implemented by the Department of Energy (DOE) since 2005, complimented by the Government Energy Management Program (GEMP) has been the cornerstone of PEEP.  This is supported by the Administrative Order No: 183 (Directing the use of Energy Efficient Lighting / Lighting Systems (EELs) in Government Facilities – Palit-Ilaw Program)  The order stipulates the retrofits of EELs in Government Buildings towards the reduction of 10% in energy consumption mandated by previous Administrative Orders (AOs 103, 110 and 126).  The implementation of these AOs was spearheaded by the EUMB-EECD. The national government agencies including its regional bureaus and offices undergo an un-announced spot check energy audit to assess and verify compliance with the orders of the President. In addition, monthly monitoring of fuel and electricity consumption is a requirement to apprise the Office of the President on the actual reduction in energy consumption and monetary savings generated by the government sector.

PELMATP focussed on addressing the barriers to widespread use of efficient lighting through EE policies and standards, technology applications, capacity building, consumer awareness, financing initiatives and lamp waste management (LWM) policies.  Hence, PEEP will enhance the activities initiated by PELMATP and implement a critical mass of projects that would establish sustainable business models for large scale implementation of EE projects in the future.

The key objectives of the project are as follows:

  • Retrofitting of about 42 government Buildings with efficient lighting systems (ELS) and the establishment of a model for large-scale implementation in the public sector.
  • Distribution of 13 Million CFLs amongst residential consumers nationwide and the design and adoption of a methodology under CDM for certification and trading of CERs.
  • Successful demonstration of efficient street lights and traffic lighting in LGUs; and the establishment of a model for standardizing public lighting and large scale implementation.
  • Expansion of the capacity of LATL to conduct efficiency testing on a wider range of appliances and the accreditation of the laboratory to ISO 17025.
  • Procurement of a Lamp Waste Management facility and the establishment of a business model for collection of lamp waste and the operation of the facility.
  • Successful operation of a Super ESCO including capacitated staff and energy service models for implementing EE projects in public and private sectors.
  • Establishment of an efficient building rating system in the Philippines for new and retrofitted buildings.

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

IIEC with funding from ICA-SEA is implementing preparatory activities for establishing a High Efficiency Certification Program for air conditioners (ACs). To develop a sustainable program, a good understanding of the existing market situation and level of stakeholder interest on high-efficiency products is necessary.


The task of establishing a high-efficiency certification program will involve 3 phases:

•     Phase 1: Market Analysis and Stakeholder Engagement
•     Phase 2: Program Design
•     Phase 3: Pilot Implementation


IIEC has just recently concluded Phase 1: Market Analysis and Stakeholder Engagement of the program.  This phase consists of five  tasks:

•     Task 1: Comparative Review of Energy Performance Standards for ACs in the Southeast Asian  Region
•     Task 2: Supply Analysis
•     Task 3: Demand Analysis
•     Task 4: Institutional Analysis
•     Task 5: Stakeholder Dialogue and Consultation


Phase 2 is currently being developed.

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

The project’s objective was to remove the remaining technical and market barriers to the accelerated commercialization and large-scale promotion of energy-efficient fluorescent lighting systems in the Philippines.

This project was implemented in parallel with the Efficient Lighting Initiative (ELI), a program which sought to promote the voluntary adoption of international standards of performance and technical specifications for efficient and reliable compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) products in seven selected countries - Argentina, Czech Republic, Hungary, Latvia, Peru, South Africa, and the Philippines.  IIEC’s  work included characterization of the Philippine market for energy efficient lighting which examined the behavior and leverage points of key lighting market intermediaries such as product specifiers, manufacturers, importers, distributors and retailers and their role in the implementation of efficient lighting programs.
