"Analysis on Energy Saving Potential in East Asia"
Abstract: Responding to the Cebu Declaration of the leaders of the East Asia Summit (EAS) countries, Japan proposed to undertake a study of the energy savings and CO2 emission reduction potential in the EAS region. The study would provide insights to national energy ministers for establishing goals and action plans to improve energy efficiency in their respective countries. The first study was undertaken in 2007 by the Working Group (WG) for Analysis of Energy Saving Potential in East Asia. The study examined two key scenarios up to 2030, a Business-As-Usual (BAU) scenario which reflected each country's current goals and action plans, and an Alternative Policy Scenario (APS), which included additional goals and action plans currently under consideration in each country. The focus of the study is on analyzing the additional energy savings that might be achieved through the goals and action plans of individual countries, above and beyond BAU. The additional savings were measured as the difference between the BAU and APS scenarios. In order to support the analysis on energy saving potential, four new research projects started in 2010 in addition to those started in 2009. These projects include the pilot survey of residential end-use energy consumption in participating ASEAN countries, bottom-up analysis of specific sectors in selected countries and the implementation of related studies commissioned by Japan.
