On Monday, 20 October 2014, I joined ACE’s team to share about Energy Efficiency & Conservation (EE&C) Iniviatives in ASEAN at the Conference on Energy Efficiency and Conservation Technologies in Indonesia (Business Sourcing and Matching Opportunities and Networking Lunch with Business Sector) at Hotel Indonesia Kempinski, Jakarta, Indonesia, co-organized by my office and Japanese Business Alliance for Smart Energy Worldwide.
I mostly talked about the Outlook, while the remaining issues were being presented by my colleague. Read more
I am working on energy data of ASEAN Member Countries to see the trend from the last decade (2001-2010). One thing that I found very interesting is about the Philippines. Read more
By the end of last year, my office published another two pocket books; one is about ASEAN Energy Efficiency and another one is about ASEAN Renewable Energy. Both of these books provide you will a snapshot of associated related activities in ASEAN under the framework of ASEAN Plan of Action for Energy Cooperation (APAEC) 2010-2015.
Go download it both.
Development of ASEAN Energy Sector: Power Network Interconnection, Natural Gas Infrastructure, and Promotion of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency

Quite hectic schedule for the last couple months. My last article is the one in November about Energy Efficiency. I will share some articles in the near future, but for now, I am pleased to inform you that we have two vacancies for Technical Officer in my organization, the ASEAN Centre for Energy. Read more
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.
You may find the complete presentations from all speakers at IEA page here or go to IPEEC webpage (but you need to log in for this).
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.
