MAKATI CITY, 27 August 2021 -- Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance (PE2) president and chair of the PE2 Policy Committee, Alexander Ablaza, convened the Alliance's first Sub-committee for Minimum Energy Performance (MEP) and Energy Labeling during a kick-off meeting held earlier today. The Sub-committee for MEP and Energy Labeling is structured under the existing PE2 Policy Committee, and will focus on Government policy issuances, department circulars, implementing guidelines and standards relating to minimum energy performance and energy labeling requirements of energy-consuming products, which now include lighting products, air conditioning units, refrigerators and television sets.

On 15 June 2020, Sec. Alfonso Cusi of the Department of Energy (DOE) signed Department Circulars Nos. DC2020-06-0015 and DC2020-06-0016, which set the guidelines of the Philippine Energy Labeling Program (PELP) and the MEP, respectively, for compliance by importers, manufacturers, distributors, dealers and retailers of energy-consuming products (ECPs).

Ablaza announced that the initial members of the sub-committee include: Johnson B. Escober (Daikin) - Sub-committee Head, Bienvenido C. Gonzales (Stellar Equipment and Machinery) – Member, and Alison C. Rillon (Signify) – Member. Wincor Cas (Concepcion-Carrier) was invited to join the sub-committee, but his schedule did not permit him to join the meeting today.

“We want to help the government and we would like to align our standards with other ASEAN countries,” said Escober. Gonzales said that he supports this new PE2 initiative. Rillon declared, “We’re very honored to be part of this team. We’ll try to give our best, in our capacity to contribute as well.”

Ablaza said that the new Sub-committee for MEP and Energy Labeling will enable the PE2 Policy Committee to review draft policy issuances or propose improvements to existing guidelines under PELP or related to MEP of ECPs, under the broader, overarching PE2 objective of transforming the energy end-use market by accelerating the deployment of energy-efficient technologies. He welcomed the enthusiastic participation of the sub-committee members and told them that the creation of the sub-committee will be ratified by the PE2 Board of Trustees during its next meeting.
