ASEAN Regional Energy Efficiency Policy Dialogue and Capacity Building Workshop


Jakarta, Indonesia: 18 October 2011 - 19 October 2011

Organiser: IEA

Background

Organisers: IPEEC-WEACT Subtask (Led by Italian Ministry of Economic Development), IEA, and the IPEEC Secretariat. Hosted by Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.

WEACT (Worldwide Energy Efficiency Action Through Capacity Building and Training) is a subtask of the International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC). The objectives of WEACT include raising awareness regarding the benefits and importance of energy efficiency policies for government leaders, and building capacity of government staff and consultants to develop and implement high quality energy efficiency policies. The IPEEC web site (www.ipeec.org) has more information on the WEACT work programme. The IEA is a major contributor to developing and delivering IPEEC-WEACT work programme.

The IPEEC-WEACT subtask is led by Italy’s Ministry of Economic Development/Department of Energy in cooperation with Italian clean energy agencies, the U.S. Department of Energy and its National Renewable Energy and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories, Japan’s Ministry of Economy and Industry and the Energy Conservation Center Japan, France’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and ADEME, and the International Energy Agency. Participating Governments, with in kind and cash contributions to the performing organizations, finance WEACT.

A key component of the IPEEC-WEACT work programme is policy dialogue and capacity building focused on energy efficiency issues and policies of particular interest in specific regions. This component is carried forward through regional events which include high-level policy dialogues and capacity building workshops.

A regional energy efficiency policy dialogue and capacity building event for the Southeast Asia region was held on 18-20 October in Jakarta, Indonesia. This event was convened under the auspices of the Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and the Italian Ministry of Economic Development (MoED). The two events were developed and delivered jointly by MoED, the IEA and the IPEEC Secretariat. Additional technical, in-kind and financial support was provided by ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE), the International Copper Association, Danish International Development Agency, Asian Development Bank, World Bank, AusAID, and the Norwegian Aid Agency (NORAD).

Over 85 participants from nine ASEAN member nations plus China, Japan, and India participated in the Jakarta workshop. The policy dialogue and capacity building workshop afforded opportunities for interaction between country energy efficiency experts as well as donors, NGOs, and the IPEEC-WEACT working partners.

The presentations from the Jakarta workshop as well as the workshop report will be provided shortly.
