IIEC’s Experience in Training & Capacity Building
 

At a Glance:

IIEC enables sharing of knowledge and best practices across countries, and facilitates the mainstreaming of successful energy policies and projects. We accomplish this through our focus on local needs and delivery of training and capacity building programs customized to suit local contexts. The core objective of our training and capacity building programs is to ensure that stakeholders can implement energy related policies and activities in a sustainable manner.

Our Experience:

IIEC’s training and capacity building programs are developed through a comprehensive process. In each program, we assess specific needs and address them by using customized training tools, materials, and training approaches. Quantitative and qualitative market surveys and in-depth analyses are the core elements in our capacity building needs assessment exercises, which help IIEC define the capacity building requirements of the recipients. International experience and lessons learned are seamlessly integrated into our customized training tools and materials.

The Challenge:

Lack of knowledge and appropriate skills to identify and address the needs in clean energy development is common among policy makers, regulators, financiers, and private sectors in developing countries and economies in transition. These barriers have hampered greater adoption of clean energy policies and projects by policy makers and stakeholders. Often, even successful Energy Efficiency (EE) and Renewable Energy (RE) projects cannot be replicated due to a lack of market-supporting conditions, such as limited knowledge within financial institutions about financing such projects. The limited capacity of local technology suppliers and installers is another barrier to development and scaling up of clean energy projects.

IIEC’s experience in this key activity, categorized by country is listed below:

The Philippine Efficient Lighting Market Transformation Project (PELMATP) is a five year project being implemented by the Government of the Philippines through the Department of Energy (DOE). The project aims to remove barriers against the widespread use of energy efficient lighting (EEL) systems in the Philippines. It is supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) through its implementing agency, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).


PELMATP has several components addressing policy, institutional, information, and financial barriers. The Design and Implementation of EEL Micro Financing Scheme is one of the components earmarked to address the financing barriers.  Its goal is to promote EEL through consumer cooperatives, a sector noted to be effective distribution channel of consumer products. The expected output is a micro financing/ business model scheme that will facilitate procurement and distribution of EEL products through the said sector.


These deliverables are as follows:

  • Conduct inventory and assessment of existing consumer cooperatives for the purpose of identifying the type of cooperatives that can participate in EEL micro financing and determine their capacity building needs.
  • Develop the appropriate EEL Micro financing model(s) suitable for consumer cooperatives.
  • Conduct regional consultations with consumer cooperatives and provide the training to capacitate the cooperatives to participate in the micro financing model developed. A set of criteria will be developed to select the most suitable training sites.
  • Negotiate financing bulk procurement arrangements with EEL suppliers (importers and manufacturers)
  • Implement the micro financing models in three (3) cooperatives in the country preferably one each in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

IIEC launched the  Capacity Building Programme in 1997. This programme strengthened the capacity of NGOs to promote sustainable energy alternatives and provided the co-ordination and support for groups to be more focused and effective through planning strategies and working together.

The achievements of the programme include the following:
- Formation of an NGO information exchange program (of energy policy development updates and other relevant materials) among 34 NGOs across the Ukraine.
- Creation of a parliamentary group which brought together a range of Rada deputies with strong interests in energy and the environment. The group focused on energy-related environmental policy, global climate change and development and co-ordination of mitigation strategies.
- Two successful NGO training seminars. The first in June 1998 entitled “Sustainable Energy for Ukraine” brought together 30 participants from across Ukraine to discuss sustainable energy alternatives, energy policy making and strategies for promoting sustainable energy at a national level. The second workshop entitled “Energy Conservation as a way to Meet Local Energy Needs: Main actors, Models, and Best Practices” brought together for the first time NGOs, local government and business to develop sustainable energy policy and public/private partnerships to meet local energy needs.
