Demand-Side Management Workshop at the Pacific Power Association Conference
The IIEC is the leading implementing agency for the Promoting Energy Efficiency in The Pacific - Phase 2 (PEEP2) project funded by the Asian Development Bank. This 3-year project covers the Cook Islands, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tonga and Vanuatu.
The objective is to stimulate energy efficiency through demand-side energy efficiency improvements in the residential, commercial, and government sectors in each of the five countries.
Under PEEP2, IIEC in partnership with the Pacific Power Association (PPA) conducted a one day Demand-Side Management (DSM) Workshop on the 17th July 2012. This workshop was part of the PPA’s 21st Annual Conference and the 6th Engineer’s Workshop, held in Port Vila, Vanuatu. The speakers covered DSM implementation experiences of relevance to the Pacific including International Best Practices and Case Studies, Compact Fluorescent Lamp Programs, Energy Efficient Street Lighting Programs, Standards & Labeling and Retrofit Programs in Public Buildings. The workshop was mainly attended by electric utility representatives and engineers from several Pacific Island Countries (PICs). Furthermore, IIEC also carried out a presentation to the CEO’s of 25 electric utilities in the Pacific region on international experiences of DSM and the opportunities for the PICs to improve their operations through DSM.
