MAKATI CITY, Philippines, 18 October 2019 – A new batch of hotels and resorts received energy efficiency (EE) training from the Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance (PE2) in the third capacity building seminar held earlier today under a Department of Tourism (DOT) program implemented by the Philippine Center for Environmental Protection and Sustainable Development, Inc. (PCEPSDI). The seminar was conducted earlier today in the DOT Makati office.

Updating the training course used in the capacity building seminars held in Iloilo and Quezon City in October 2018, PE2 presented energy efficiency modules relating to energy efficiency opportunities in the tourism sector, energy efficiency project implementation, and energy efficiency policy and financing options.

The participants included facility and compliance engineers of large and small hotels, resorts, conference centers and the government-owned Philippine Trade Training Center.

PE2 trustees Alexander Ablaza, Raymond A. Marquez and Bienvenido C. Gonzales served as the EE resource persons of the day-long training event. Project officer Kiko E. Velhagen led the PCEPSDI implementation team in the seminar. Marquez delivered a presentation on EE basics and opportunities in hotel facilities. Gonzales’ two-part sessions offered practical recommendations for implementation of EE projects. Ablaza lectured on the new EE&C law and the various ways of financing EE projects. The participants were all excited to hear about the forthcoming approval of the draft Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act No. 11285.

All three EE training seminars were organized under a broader 4-year UNEP-assisted capacity building program, “Transforming Tourism Value Chains in Developing Countries And Small Island Developing States (SIDS) to Accelerate More Resource Efficient, Low Carbon Development.”

The UNEP program is a joint undertaking of the DOT, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) and the International Climate Initiative (IKI) Programme.
