Presentation: Energy Efficiency Action Planning in ASEAN region

As I shared you before, I joined as the speaker and panelist in two session on ASEAN Regional Energy Efficiency Policy Dialogue and Capacity Building Workshop, on 18-20 October 2011 in Jakarta, Indonesia that organized by IPEEC-WEACT subtask and the IEA.

SESSION I: Action Planning for energy efficiency.

Ron Benioff, Manager, International Programmes, NREL shared about the Overview: action planning goals, approaches, and examples (I shared already the information 1-2), Grayson Heffner, Senior Energy Efficiency Advisor, IEA presented Case Study: action planning in the EU, and myself presented Energy efficiency action planning in ASEAN region.

To that, I am pleased to share with you my presentation. I hope you find this information useful.

Sunday Watching – Energy in 2035

Referred to its World Energy Outlook, IEA presented the video that will give us an answer, where does the energy comes to meet the world need in 2035. Watch it!

Presentation: ASEAN+3 Oil Stockpiling and Energy Security System

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.

I found the publications from them are very useful. Lot of publications that we can get for free by download it from the internet, or if you have chance, like me, to visit their office in Paris, you may ask the print copy also.

Anyway, some of IEA colleagues are also very kind to give me the not-for-free copy for free. ;-)

Emergency Response Exercise for ASEAN/APEC Economies

Short report!

On 2 and 3 May 2011, International Energy Agency in collaboration with Ministry of Energy of Thailand organized the Emergency Response Exercise (ERE) for ASEAN and APEC Economies in Bangkok, Thailand. This is the second activity following the great success of the Emergency Response Training (ERT) for APEC which was held in Paris last September. If ERT was focused on the lecturer, ERE reviewed APEC Economies/ASEAN Members emergency response procedures in case of a serious disruption of oil and gas. It consists of a training session on the first day and simulation exercises on the second day.

The IEA itself conducts emergency response exercises at IEA headquarters, Paris, for IEA Member countries biannually. The purpose of IEA energy emergency response exercises is to simulate real-life energy supply disruptions to test IEA emergency response preparedness to manage supply crises.  At the last IEA ERE in November 2011, key non-IEA countries jointly participated alongside the IEA Member countries. Me as the representative of ASEAN Centre for Organization was also participated on that event. But the ERE in Thailand was the first such IEA exercise tailored for specific regional organisations beyond the OECD.

Energy Training Week of IEA

Here’s the update!

I went to Paris, France early this month (4-8 April 2011), attended the training that held by International Energy Agency (IEA). This is my 3rd time to participate in the courses/trainings that held by IEA, after Emergency Respond Training for APEC Economies in September 2010 and Emergency Respond Exercise 5 (ERE5) in November 2011.

As the new comer in the energy policy field, trainings or courses are the thing that I need most, especially when the opportunity comes from the biggest international organization in the energy field. Not much people get the chances like me, right?  Read more

Energy Training Week – IEA

I just got the information by today that the IEA is pleased to announce that it is opening its doors for a week of free* training on energy specifically aimed at professionals in developing countries and emerging economies. Its called Energy Training Week and will be held on 4-8 April 2011 in IEA Headquarters, Paris, France.

There are five course available, which are:

1. Energy Essentials for Decision Makers (with a special focus on natural gas)

2. Oil and Gas Market Security (with a special focus on natural gas)

3. Energy Efficiency and Low Carbon Policy (focus on climate sustainability)

4. Low Carbon Technology Policy and Planning (focus on technology deployment roadmaps)

5. Energy Analysis and Modelling (focus on methods and tools)

Over the course of five intensive days, participants will take part in a mixture of highly focussed lectures and hands-on exercises, thereby becoming familiar with the theory behind and the application of the IEA’s internationally recognised models and tools. All courses will be highly interactive, allowing participants to engage directly with IEA experts and to exchange knowledge and experience with peers from many other countries.  The event will also offer many opportunities for informal networking.

Check the detail information on IEA’s site here and download your registration form here.

As my work goes with course 4 and 5 but we can only attend one course at the time, so I decide to apply for course 4. I think I need this more in the way to start my job on IEA-ASEAN team to develop ASEAN Energy Technology Roadmap.

*Anyway, free only means for attendance charge. You still have to cover your own travel and accomodations costs by your own.

How to Collect Energy Data

One of my biggest fear in the 2011 is developing ASEAN Energy Review (AER). It’s an annual publication on energy statistic in ASEAN Region. Last published is in 2008, with 1996 baseline data, during the period of AEEMTRC project who headed by Dr. Jean-Yves Garnier (now Head of Energy Statistics, IEA).

Collecting data is a monster. As what Mr. Brett Jacobs, South-East Asia Programme Manager, IEA (former Head of Australian Energy Demand Energy Statistics team) shared with me, two thing about collecting data, is a difficult and thankless task. The data respondent are all voluntary, so it’s our mandatory to make their task as easy and as rewarding as possible.

For this AER, I have to collect the data on primary energy supply, energy transformation, energy demand and consumption in the oil, gas, coal, electricity, and renewable energy sectors from 10 ASEAN Member Countries.

Lucky me, I got support from Dr. Garnier and Mr. Brett who generously share some tips about data collecting that I can resumed to all of you.

1)      Get official contacts appointed by Member countries
2)      Have a close (maybe friendly) relationship with these contacts
3)      Regular meetings of contacts greatly helps establishing strong links
4)      Limit the reporting burden to the minimum, but be firm with was is needed to do your job
5)      Have user-friendly questionnaire, clear, easy to understand, electronic (Excel or internet)
6)      Give clear instructions and deadlines and be firm on the deadlines.
7)      If people don’t answer or send data on time, explain them the Legal Framework that tasked the collecting data
8)      Give fast feedback on the quality of their submissions. Query any data point you think is wrong. Show that you use their data. For info, every year, IEA publish a Report Card to show our contacts as well as IEA policy makers the issues we found on the annual submissions of all our IEA member countries in terms of timeliness, completeness and quality. This is very effective.
9)      Prepare document based on the data received and circulate these documents to all your contacts, so they can see that their data is used.

Lot of things to do but also lot of way to do it. I hope this tips are useful for you.

Will share more during my work on AER.
