In October 2014, IIEC organized a study tour on Energy Efficiency Projects in the Philippines for the delegates from the Electricite du Laos (EdL) under the Demand-Side Management and Energy Efficiency (DSM/EE) II project. The objective of the study tour was for the EdL to learn about similar Energy Efficiency Projects that were implemented in the Philippines, and to discuss lessons learned with the implementing agency, the Philippines Department of Energy (DoE).
The study tour included site visits to test laboratories (light test, refrigerator test, and television test), LED street lights, lamp waste management facility and a wind farm. In meeting with the DoE, the EdL delegates met with the Undersecretary Loreta G. Ayson and Directors in the energy and standard and testing departments. The two entities have mutual agreement concerning future collaboration and information sharing on energy efficiency.
