Singapore-IEA Energy Efficiency Training Week for Asia-Pacific, 3-7 July, Singapore

‌‌Singapore IEA Energy Efficiency Training Week; E4; Asia Pacific

The inaugural Singapore-IEA Energy Efficiency Training Week for Asia-Pacific was held in Singapore from 3-7 July 2017 inclusive. 

The Training Week in Singapore is the first activity under the Singapore-IEA Regional Training Hub. Launched in October 2016, this Regional Training Hub taps on Singapore’s location at the heart of Southeast Asia to provide the region with greater access to IEA’s training and expertise, and existing synergies between Singapore and the IEA to co-create capacity building programmes based on the evolving needs of the region.

Building on the success of the annual Paris-based event, the ENergy Efficiency Training Week for Asia-Pacific will bring together ‘next generation’ energy efficiency professionals from government institutions and supporting organisations across the region. The event aims to build capacity among junior policy makers, and to equip them with greater knowledge and skills on developing energy efficiency initiatives in their respective countries. The participants will become part of the international energy efficiency community with a larger support network as they progress through their careers. 

The E4 Training Week consists of 4 parallel courses on energy efficiency in: 1) buildings; 2) industry; 3) lighting, appliances, and equipment; and 4) transport. Each course offers a mix of lectures, interactive discussions, practical exercises and a site visit. The programme also includes joint sessions on assessing the potential for energy efficiency, tracking progress, communication campaigns and finance as well as a special focus on measuring the social and economic benefits of energy efficiency measures.
