3rd Workshop on "Analysis of Energy Saving Potential in East Asia Region"
The 3rd Workshop on "Analysis of Energy Saving Potential in East Asia Region" was held from 18 to 20 April 2011 at Peninsula-Excelsior Hotel, Singapore with 13 Working Group (WG) members from ASEAN member states as well as China, India and Japan.
The objective of this workshop is to finalize two energy outlook results, BAU and APS, extract policy implications to be submitted to EAS-ECTF/EMM, reassessment of the pilot survey results on energy consumption in residential sector in ASEAN region and energy saving potential of specific sectors applying the bottom-up approach. In addition, the members evaluated the summary reports of the five satellite projects.
During the meeting, WG members presented their final energy outlook results, discussed the key findings and policy implications based on the outlook results, assessed energy consumption pattern by end-use in residential sector as well as the effectiveness of the bottom-up approach to improve the policy energy saving targets. Some of the members were assigned to evaluate summary reports of the five satellite projects.
The final energy outlook results were assessed and some of them will be revised quickly. WG members extracted the key findings and policy implications successfully. On the pilot survey, although the sample size is too small and some data are biased, the results provided meaningful energy consumption patterns in ASEAN residential sector. The bottom-up approach analysis suggested to the members that their policy energy saving targets can be more ambitious. For evaluation of the satellite projects, WG members requested to increase the quality on some of the summary reports.
