Energy Efficiency Asia 2008 - The Energy Efficiency Coalition

  1. 1. Energy Efficiency Asia 2008 19-20 June Beijing Horst Biedermann Chairman Energy Efficiency Coalition
  2. 2. REEEP's Vision and Focus 1. REEEP acts as a market facilitator by reducing market barriers for renewables and energy efficiency systems 2. REEEP believes in action on the ground via project activities that are targeted on policy improvements and innovative finance mechanisms. 3. REEEP is driven by a bottom up approach to meet the real needs on the ground 4. REEEP is committed to the MDGs and aims to improve access to sustainable clean energy for the poor
  3. 3. The number of REEEP partners is continuously growing 1. REEEP currently comprises 260 partners representing 40 governments, businesses and NGO’s committed to accelerating the uptake of renewable energy and energy efficiency 2. REEEP is funded by 13 governments: Austria, Australia, Canada, Germany, EU, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, US, and UK the major donor of REEEP 3. REEEP is highly recognized in the political arena through G8, Gleneagles plan of action, APEC and the UN
  4. 4. 40 governments are among the 260 partners Currently more than 247 partners: • 39 Governments • International organizations, NGOs and companies
  5. 5. REEEP quot;energy efficiency basketquot; contains a range of activities carried out jointly with other players 40 Regional projects currently address energy efficiency 3 Workshops on EE in buildings 3 EE Investment Fora 1 EE Invest Forum planned for Nov 2008 in Singapore Global Review on Energy Efficiency in 2008 Host of the Energy Efficiency Coalition
  6. 6. Currently REEEP undertakes 43 projects in 25 countries 2 2 1 11 1 1 2 4 1 2 1 13 2 2 1 2 2 1 3 1 1 4 8 1 3 1 1 8 1
  7. 7. Using Financial and Market-based Mechanisms to Improve Building Energy Efficiency in China Profitable EE in the building sector of China through financial and market mechanisms, and a road- map to increase take-up Analysis of existing financial and market mechanisms such as taxes, subsidies, soft loans, TWCs, and the CDM and VER markets Development of a policy framework for the implementation of market-based instruments for EE in buildings Project Partner: ESD Ltd.
  8. 8. Efficiency Power Plant (EPP) Implementation in Jiangsu, China Achieving energy savings equivalent of a 150 MW power plant - virtual power plant EPP and emission reduction of 2 m t per year Develop a DSM manual, a monitoring and verification protocol and detailed EPP design and implementation in two of Chinese TOP 1000 enterprise energy efficiency programs Saving will contribute to China’s national energy intensity target of 20% reduction by 2010 Project Partner: IMT
  9. 9. Panzhihua’s Pilot Action towards being a Sustainable Energy City Improving Panzhihua’s capacity for utilization of RE and EE for its city energy supply Assessment of Panzhihua energy status quo and training of local stakeholders on RE and EE possibilities Development of the Panzhihua SEC Plan & Action Plan Development of a Sustainable Energy Project Manual Project Partner: ACPA
  10. 10. REEEP Energy Efficiency Coalition An initiative by REEEP to fill the gap between the Energy efficiency potential and Implementation EEC Members (Corporate – Association – Governments – Multilateral) Australia – Austria – Belgium – China – Denmark – Finland – France – Ghana – India – Japan – Mexico – UK – USA
  11. 11. REEEP Energy Efficiency Coalition Objectives – The EEC network would seek to achieve in its first step building the following: – Provide advocacy for international energy efficiency programmes – Provide guidance for research initiatives (global assessment report) – Communicate in international fora best practice and implementation solutions – Provide mentorship to local and national networks – Communicate and promote education programmes targeting homebuilder industry, civil society, governments, universities
  12. 12. REEEP Energy Efficiency Coalition Envisions a stepwise work expansion Step by step approach: starting with energy efficiency related to buildings, then expanding to industrial energy efficiency and then the coalition could also cover the power sector and eventually the transport sector All EE sectors (eventually Industrial including EE in EE transport) buildings 1st Step 2nd Step 3rd Step
  13. 13. REEEP Energy Efficiency Coalition Work Programme – Global Assessment Report • Develop a global energy efficiency assessment report. The first main activity of the EEC will be to guide and provide input on this report. • The relative lack of data in relation to energy efficiency practices is still striking and is one of the reasons that the effects of energy efficiency cannot be clearly demonstrated. • The gathering of data is a necessary condition for decisive action. • The global assessment report intends to contribute to overcome this obstacle.
  14. 14. REEEP Energy Efficiency Coalition Sharing of best practices – There are many successful energy efficiency solutions existing which can be made available through the coalition to replicate success and avoid failures.
  15. 15. REEEP Energy Efficiency Coalition Mentorship for local initiatives – The coalition will act as mentors for local programmes and will share their international experience with local stakeholders.
  16. 16. REEEP Energy Efficiency Coalition Increase the voice for energy efficiency – The EEC will promote the message on the importance of energy efficiency in buildings at international fora and events.
