In the third-quarter of 2014, a lamp sampling activity in six Southeast Asian countries was conducted with collaboration between IIEC and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). This effort was designed to strengthen and support national and regional resources for the monitoring, verification, and enforcement (MVE) of efficient lighting; these activities are essential to fostering a sustainable transition to efficient lighting.

The Compliance Assistance Program (CAP) of UNEP’s Regional Office in Asia and the Pacific has awarded IIEC a project to develop a comprehensive document on “Vision 2030: Ozone and Climate Friendly Transition for Buildings for Asia”. The objective of the project is to prepare a strategic vision document for Ozone- and Climate-Friendly transition in the Building sector across the Asia-Pacific region. About 88% of hydro chlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) consumption in Article 5 countries takes place in the refrigeration and air-conditioning sectors.

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).
