ASEAN - Japan Promotion on Energy Efficiency and Conservation

 

 

 

Promotion on Energy Efficiency and Conservation (PROMEEC)
The Promotion on Energy Efficiency and Conservation or PROMEEC is a project under the Senior Officials Meeting on Energy and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan (SOME-METI) Work Programme jointly implemented by the Energy Conservation Centre of Japan (ECCJ), ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) and the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Sub-sector Network (EE&C-SSN). Technical and financial assistance are provided by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The PROMEEC Project consists of three sub-projects, namely: 1) PROMEEC – Major Industries, 2) PROMEEC - Buildings, and 3) PROMEEC Energy Management. The Project strengthens the cooperation between the ASEAN Member Countries and Japan in promoting a culture of increased energy efficiency and conservation in the region. 

PROMEEC – Major Industries
This sub-project aims to contribute to the promotion and awareness of energy efficiency and conservation as well as environmental protection in the industrial sector of the ASEAN Member Countries. The activities that would achieve the objectives are: 1) establishment of standardized evaluation criteria for energy conservation in factories through the preparation of the in-house database and technical directory; 2) transfer of know-how in energy auditing through on-the-job trainings (OJT), follow-up surveys and new audits for each industrial sub-sector; 3) provide recommendations to improve and reduce energy consumption; and 4) conduction of national workshops for introduction and dissemination of energy conservation measures and technologies. 

PROMEEC – Buildings
This sub-project aims to enhance and contribute to the awareness on environmental protection in the design and operation of the building sector of the ASEAN Member Countries. Activities included are: 1) establishment of a standardized evaluation criteria for energy conservation in buildings through the preparation of an in-house database system and technical directory; 2) awarding of model buildings that demonstrate energy savings and best practices; 3) provide recommendations to improve and reduce energy consumption; and 4) conduction of national workshops for introduction and dissemination of energy conservation measures and technologies. 

PROMEEC – Energy Management
This sub-project was launched in 2004 which aims, among others, to develop the “ASEAN Energy Management System” that will fully address the issues and concerns of the building and industry sectors. The activities are: 1) investigate and address the current situation of the existing infrastructure including programmes and activities for EE&C in each country for both sectors; 2) extract recommended improvement to further enhance the existing energy management programmes; 3) introduce and disseminate the energy management tools composed of the Energy Management Handbook, Technical Directory, In-house Database and Cyber Search System through national seminar-workshops; and 4) award model buildings and factories that demonstrate excellent energy management practices.
