MAKATI CITY, 5 May 2021 –The Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance (PE2) and the Department of  Science and Technology – Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD) met today to discuss how PE2 can mobilize grant funding through energy service companies (ESCOs) and energy efficiency technology providers (EETPs) under the DOS-PCIEERD Call for Proposals 2023 for the Energy Sector, specifically for a component on Transitioning MSMEs through Low-Carbon and Energy-Efficient Technologies.

One of the current issues involving MSMEs is the establishment of accurate energy baseline data/information system. This information is important to determine the energy use, efficiency and technology cost-competitiveness that can be used for better policy development.

To address the challenges in establishing energy profile of MSMEs and technology access, the program aims to link energy researchers, ESCOs and EETPs, which can serve to accelerate the deployment and utilization of low-carbon and energy-efficient technologies among MSMEs. Energy recovery systems are also being eyed as target technologies.

On 7 March 2021, DOST-PCIEERD issued a Call for Proposals for FY2023 which invites non-profit NGOs to serve as program implementing entities to administer grant funding targeted at ESCOs and EETPs demonstrating and implementing energy efficiency projects hosted by the MSME sector.

DOST-PCIEERD was represented by Engr. Patrick E. Montero, Senior Science Research Specialist of its Energy and Utilities Systems Technology Development Division.

Attending on behalf of the Alliance were PE2 president Alexander Ablaza, PE2 vice president for external affairs Theresa Acedillo-Lapuz, PE2 member services and communications manager Luigi Andrei G. Eusebio and Hazel D. Planco of the PE2 Secretariat.

During the meeting, Ablaza said, “PE2 is quite pleased that DOST-PCIEERD values the role of ESCOs and EETPs as active catalysts of MSME adoption of energy-efficient technologies through newer market delivery models such as ESCO performance contracting. PE2 most certainly plays a crucial role in helping DOST-PCIEERD achieve its objective of transforming the MSME end-use market toward low-carbon technologies through the willing participation of ESCOs and EETPs.”
