Advancing the Energy Management System in the East Asia Summit Region
This study aims to analyse the potential for deploying the Energy Management System (EMS) in the East Asia Summit (EAS) region and to propose, upon identifying the policy challenges common in the region, policy recommendations for its promotion. This study targeted five member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)--Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam. For the first-year study, the head office (Yayasan Building) of PT PLN in Indonesia and the Nonthaburi Office of the Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA) in Thailand were chosen as case studies on the potential of deploying the building management system. The potential for energy saving through implementation of affordable EMS measures and technologies in the two cases has been identified. This study will identify specific challenges in advancing EMS in the EAS region, and will propose policy options.
