MANDALUYONG CITY, 23 April 2019 – The Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance (PE2), led by its vice president for internal affairs Samuel West Stewart, held its inaugural member knowledge sharing event in Wack Wack Golf and Country Club earlier today, specifically to brief members on the ISO 50001:2018 standard and the Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN).

Now used in over 160 countries, ISO 50001:2018 is the international standard specifying requirements that make up an energy management system. The briefing explains how one can utilize this management system that imparts a more structured approach to fulfill energy policy, regulatory commitment and resource conservation objectives in a more consistent and measurable manner.  A PE2 member itself, Certification International Philippines (CIP), led by its chairman and president Renato V. Navarrete, conducted the executive briefing to promote wider understanding about the practical benefits from using the standard. CIP is a leading certification body that provides public training and certification services under various international standards, such as ISO 50001, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001, ISO 22000, FSSC and ISO 27001. CIP lead energy auditor Sybil C. Paden presented the salient features of ISO 50001:2018.

PFAN is a global network of climate and clean energy financing experts, that aims to bridge the gap between entrepreneurs developing climate and clean energy projects and private sector investors. PFAN achieves this by: [a] providing free business coaching to projects, increasing the chances of attracting investment; and, [b] growing its investor outreach. PFAN Country Coordinator Laurie B. Navarro discussed how PFAN can help EE businesses or projects. She was accompanied by PFAN colleague, Elvira Tanchuco.

PE2 president Alexander Ablaza congratulated Stewart and Luigi Eusebio of the PE2 secretariat for organizing this initial knowledge event for PE2 members, and said that he will support future initiatives to hold similar events, not only for PE2 members, but with counterparts in the public sector. Ablaza said, “Aside from building our capacities from knowledge sharing within PE2, we should also endeavor to optimize such events to build our business networks and explore how our companies can work together to pursue energy efficiency projects as a collaborative effort.” Ablaza was pleased to report that all five membership categories within the Alliance were well represented in the briefing session held earlier today.
