TAGUIG CITY, 28 January 2019 – The Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance (PE2) met with the European Union (EU)-funded Access to Sustainable Energy Programme (ASEP) Technical Assistance project team and a representative of the Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Utilization Management Bureau (EUMB) earlier today to continue exchanges on the needs of the energy efficiency sector and possible collaborative opportunities through the anticipated extension of the ASEP program term. 

PE2 echoed its earlier recommendation for ASEP to help the energy service company (ESCO) sector with capacity development interventions such as the training of trainors in support of the training and certification of Certified Energy Managers (CEM) and Certified Measurement and Verification Professionals (CMVP), and the formulation of industry-standard ESCO performance contracts. The Alliance likewise proposed the design and creation of an ESCO guarantee fund that would de-risk ESCO investments in facilities of medium-sized entities and provide cover for energy savings performance guarantees of small and medium-sized ESCOs.

PE2 also reiterated its suggestion for ASEP to coach and support at least two innovative procurements of energy efficiency technologies and services for national government agencies that could be replicated across other national and local agencies.

The Alliance also reported its progress on the Pilot Energy Monitoring System Project which is aimed at supporting the DOE-led Government Energy Management Project.

The ASEP team welcomed the suggestions as timely, especially now that they have to initiate the design of energy efficiency-related activities through an additional budget that would extend the program term beyond September 2019. Under their current resources, they announced that they have an international legal expert who will assist DOE-EUMB in the crafting of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of the anticipated Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act.

ASEP was represented by its new Team Leader, Douglas Liner and its energy efficiency team composed of Josephine Mangila-Tioseco, Fidelpio Ferraris and John Raymond Tioseco. DOE-EUMB was represented by Joan C. Escalona. PE2 was represented by its president Alexander Ablaza, treasurer Theresa Acedillo-Lapuz and member services and communications manager Luigi Eusebio.

Ablaza offered continued availability of PE2 to support ASEP if and when it decides to pursue the recommended activities.
