Washington, DC, November 4, 2015 - Rob Pratt has been appointed President of the International Institute for Energy Conservation (IIEC), working with Felix Gooneratne, the Institute's CEO who is based in Bangkok, Thailand.

In June 2015, IIEC completed the ADB sponsored project Promoting Energy Efficiency in the Pacific – Phase 2 (PEEP2). The project, which was launched in 2011, focused on reducing energy consumption in the residential, commercial and public sectors of five Pacific Developing Member Countries (PDMCs) – Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Tonga, Samoa and the Cook Islands – by establishing energy efficiency targets, putting in place policy and implementation frameworks, and implementing a variety of energy efficiency measures in these sectors.

The IIEC Philippines Office completed a study that will help promote investments in sustainable production in the steel and chemical fertilizer industries in Vietnam. The study, carried out under the project titled “Strengthening Capacity on Climate Change Initiatives in the Industry and Trade Sectors” (CCIT), assessed market opportunities in Vietnam from the perspective of financial institutions and service providers.
