Organised by the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (IEEJ) and the Government of Japan with support of International Energy Agency (IEA) as part of the Energy Management Action NetworK (EMAK) the workshop aimed to share practices and experiences on programmes for and industrial actions on the implementation of industrial energy efficiency. In light of the electricity crisis resulting from the Great East Japan Earthquake, the government has ordered large industry and buildings to constrain demand and has asked voluntary actions from small and medium sized factories and buildings. This has spurred intensified industrial efforts to curb energy consumption and implement energy management systems.
Japanese experiences in this area provide insights into possibilities to quickly ensure sustained industrial energy efficiency improvements and is of relevance to other countries faced with supply constraints or that are planning to implement ambitious energy efficiency programmes. The workshop also presented experiences from Australia where the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) Program has achieved substantial results in terms of reducing industrial energy consumption, Australian and German insights on the role of industry in demand side management, and experiences from Germany on the establishment of industrial networks for energy efficiency (LEEN).
