QUEZON CITY, 21 December 2019 – The ESCO Sub-Committee of the Policy Committee of the Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance (PE2) met earlier today to initiate the process of formulating the industry position and review accreditation policy frameworks in other countries.

ESCO Sub-Committee head Raymond A. Marquez (EconoServ Int’l) convened and chaired the meeting. Joining the discussion were Alexander Ablaza, Felix Richard A. Cordova (Edward Marcs), Rodolfo R. Peñalosa (Westco), Ronaldo R. Torres (MServ) and Richard A. Uy (Delta Dore).

The group reviewed research findings on ESCO accreditation policy frameworks in other markets, whether the government or the ESCO association implemented the accreditation system. The review included accreditation guidelines enforced in country markets which include India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and the United States. Marquez said that the Philippines can learn from relevant and applicable accreditation practices in other ESCO markets and tailor them for local market conditions.

Ablaza also reported to the ESCO Sub-Committee that PE2 is currently in the process of forging a cooperation agreement with Carbon Trust, an implementing entity engaged by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office for the ASEAN Low Carbon Energy Programme (LCEP). LCEP was asked to perform a deeper research of international best practice in ESCO accreditation systems in at least 3 country markets, draft specific recommendations for the Philippine ESCO market, and support a technical workshop, as early as late-January 2020.
