Leading the Transition to Clean Energy

The Promoting Energy Efficiency in the Pacific – Phase 2 (PEEP2) Project is a supporting technical assistance project (TA-7798-REG) funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the International Institute for Energy Conservation (IIEC) is the technical assistance consultant selected for project implementation. The main objective of the PEEP2 is to identify, design and implement energy efficiency measures that deliver significant energy savings, lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reduce dependency on fossil fuels for electricity generation.

As of December 2013, a total of 31 energy efficiency projects were designed and approved by the ADB for funding or co-financing by the ADB, Global Environment Facility, the Government of Australia and the Government of Japan. An additional three projects are being considered for Papua New Guinea. The projects cover energy efficiency measures in the residential, commercial and public sectors (including street lighting).

Overall, the total projected annual energy savings are 3.49 GWh per year, and annual energy cost savings of 1.75 million USD per year and total annual CO2 savings of 2,818 tons of CO2 equivalent per year. The Table below provides a summary of the estimated annual savings per country. The projects covering energy efficient lighting in the residential, commercial and government sectors represent about 70% of the total estimated annual energy savings.

The IIEC has commenced delivery and installation of energy efficient equipment in each of the five countries, which will continue during 2014. The estimated savings mentioned above will be monitored and verified for each project during 2014 and project case studies will be published during the second half of 2014.
