I was in Manado, South Sulawesi, Indonesia last week, attended the 30th HAPUA Council Meeting, generously hosted by PT PLN (Persero) Indonesia. HAPUA stands for The Heads of ASEAN Power Utilities/Authorities, a specialized energy body in ASEAN which consists of national electricity companies from all of ASEAN Member Countries. The meeting that attended by CEOs/Directors of ASEAN’ national electricity companies is the venue for the region in shaping their effort to develop a regional inter-connectivity for electricity.

For the last three days, or even from Saturday, I was very busy on many preparation and arrangement of the 30th AMEM. Before, I was thinking to make some articles and share it here (or even in theenergycollective.com as I promised to them), but in fact, I can’t finish any article until now. One is because I have no free time (less sleep) and two is because so many things are not clear up yet, so that I can’t share it then.
But, at least, to merit my promise before, I would like to share the article on the Press Release: Read more
Back from one week in Cambodia, attended the 30th SOME and its associated meeting, now I am attending the Workshop on ASEAN Coal Database and Information System -Jakarta, 9-12 July 2012, organized by Geological Agency, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of Indonesia, under AFOC
This morning, as one of resource person, I presented Energy Management Policy in ASEAN. This is not the best one as I only had a very short time to prepare it. But I think, I could share it with you, for your reference.
Extremely busy for the last couple months. Currently, I am writing two articles, one is about the latest status of ASEAN Power Grid, and the second one is about development of Trans-ASEAN Gas Pipeline. As we are reaching the 2015, energy infrastructure connectivity is one of the goal. I hope I can finish it in the next two weeks.
For now, I am pleased to share with some pictures from HAPUA series meeting (THE 9th MEETING OF ASEAN POWER GRID CONSULTATIVE COMMITTEE (APGCC), 04TH JUNE 2012, THE 15th MEETING OF HAPUA WORKING COMMITTEE, 05TH JUNE 2012, and THE 28TH MEETING OF HAPUA COUNCIL, 06TH JUNE 2012) in the Empire Hotel and Club, Brunei Darussalam last week.
An Energy Efficiency Action Plan (EEAP) is developed through a multi-step process. The following guidelines for EEAP development present potential steps and considerations based on the experience of energy efficiency action plans from around the world, with resources identified for further information. This document is based in part on the IEA’s Energy Efficiency Governance Handbook, 2010. (http://www.iea.org/papers/2010/gov_handbook.pdf)
Part 2 of 2.
Step 6: Distribution of Responsibilities and Accountability: Specific action items (i.e., the implementation of policies and programs) must be assigned and integrated into current sector level programs and plans. Also, it is important to establish accountability for the plan’s effectiveness. Centralized accountability may simplify plan management and facilitate better coordination and evaluation. Conversely, distributed accountability engages a wider community in support of the plan by expanding ownership of policy and program impacts.
Step 7: Circulation, Discussion, and Refinement of the Energy Efficiency Action Plan. Draft plans should be broadly shared for review by key government policymakers and business and NGO stakeholders. This will both help determine whether adjustments may be needed to strengthen the EAAP and will also build support of these stakeholders for plan implementation. Read more
A friend of mine, Mr. Ron Beniof from U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory prepared a Handout on Energy Efficiency Energy Action Plan Approaches and Resources for IPEEC/WEACT ASEAN Regional Energy Efficiency Workshop that was held on 18-20 October 2011 in Jakarta.
Indeed, it’s a short but comprehensive information on how we should develop the Energy Efficiency Action Plan. With his permission, I am pleased to share it with you.
Here is the part 1 of 2.

Step 1: Stakeholder Engagement: Active stakeholder participation is essential to ensure that both a high quality plan is developed and that strong and enduring support is secured for plan implementation.
I am pleased to share with you my presentation on the Emergency Response Exercise, 2-3 May, 2011, Bangkok, Thailand that was held by International Energy Agency. The Exercise reviewed APEC Economies/ASEAN Members emergency response procedures in case of a serious disruption of oil and gas. It consisted of a training session on the first day and simulation exercises on the second day.
I joined various experts on oil stockpiling from IEA, Japan, America, etc to speak about oil stockpiling as the key issue on energy security. Please read my previous post for more detail.
This presentation is also available in IEA program website.
