Asia High-Efficiency Copper Project (1995)

This project assessed the potential for additional use of copper through the promotion of high efficiency equipment.

In 1995, IIEC identified high-efficiency equipment such as electric motors as an option. In 1997, IIEC researched and continued its work on high-efficiency motors and transformers, eventually introducing the Motor Master software to the region's utilities.

IIEC also prepared a report for the Asian Development Bank that provided recommendations to improve transformer efficiency through ADB’s lending policy. In addition, it assisted a Philippine utility in the design of a high-efficiency motor incentive program. As a result of this, the country’s National Power Corporation committed to offer a motor efficiency program as part of their DSM package.
