C2E2 participates in Asian Regional Workshop on Roadmaps for Energy Efficiency, Singapore

August 5, 2015

Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency (C2E2) participated in a workshop organized by the Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS) on Roadmaps for Energy Efficiency for countries of the Asia-Pacific region from 27-31 July, 2015.

Organized with support from the Asian Development Bank and the SE4All Global Facilitation Team, the main aim of the workshop was to facilitate development of a rough skeleton of a roadmap on energy efficiency for the represented countries.

The workshop was attended by 22 participants from 11 countries from the Asia-Pacific region. Apart from in-class instruction sessions and field visits, the workshop design comprised of break-out sessions where under the guidance of experts and resource persons the participating countries carried out the work on preparing their respective roadmaps, which were then discussed and analysed in the open session on the last day of the workshop.

During the workshop, Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency (C2E2) presented on:

  1.  Accelerator Platform Offer
  2. Energy Efficiency Policy Potential and Measures
  3. Regional and Country Experience in Energy Efficiency

Together with the Energy Conservation Centre, Japan, C2E2 moderated the break-out session discussion on ‘next steps, time line, and institutional set up on the development of roadmaps for energy efficiency’.

Apart from C2E2, experts from SE4ALL Global Facilitation Team, the Asian Development Bank, the World Bank, Singapore Ministry of Trade and Industry (Spring Singapore), Building and Construction Authority of Singapore, NREL, IPEEC, Energy Conservation Centre, Japan, International Cooper Alliance, and six private sector firms, including private investment funds, ESCOs, and consultants made presentations during the workshop and provided guidance during the break-out sessions.

The workshop outcome was 11 skeleton roadmaps providing description of barriers, gaps, challenges, priorities, and a way forward for accelerating energy efficiency in each of the participating countries.
