SINGAPORE, 3 November 2020 – Nine country energy service company (ESCO) associations of the Asia-Pacific ESCO Industry Alliance (APEIA) held its 5th APEIA Meeting earlier today, where it approved actions toward the incorporation of a legal entity in Singapore. During the same meeting, it welcomed the Thai ESCO Association as the ninth country ESCO organization to participate as a regular member of APEIA.

All nine participating organizations, representing the ESCO sectors of China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand, confirmed their respective support to the start-up activities, discussed consensual views toward the organization and charter of the regional platform and mobilized committees to prepare plans for the fiscal year 2021.

The Asosiasi Perusahaan Pendukung Konservasi Energi Indonesia (APKENINDO) and the China Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (CCEEE) were also invited to participate as observers during the 5th APEIA Meeting.

APEIA was initially convened in June 2018 as a platform for ESCO associations across the Asia-Pacific for sharing knowledge and experience, building capacity and ultimately potentially mobilizing Energy Efficiency projects and financing across the Asia-Pacific Region.

While it continues to reach out to more ESCO communities in the region, APEIA is currently supported by nine country ESCO associations:

  • Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy (AEEE), India
  • China Energy Conservation Association (EMCA), China
  • Japan Association of Energy Service Companies (JAESCO), Japan
  • Korea Association of ESCO (KAESCO), Korea
  • Malaysia Association of Energy Service Companies (MAESCO), Malaysia
  • Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance Inc. (PE2), Philippines
  • Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS), Singapore
  • Taiwan Energy Service Association (TESA), Taiwan
  • Thai ESCO Association, Thailand
