Outputs: Under the PREE Phase 10, one PREE is planned to be conducted in Indonesia in the second half of 2020. PREE deliverables will include a Peer Review Report on Energy Efficiency for the host economy, which will include the identification of barriers to the effective implementation of the action plans and the recommendations for overcoming those barriers. The report will cover a variety of issues such as institutional framework, goals and strategy, data collection and monitoring, policy measures and education. Once the report is finished, it will be circulated to EWG members for their endorsement.
The Peer Review Team will be recruited by APERC in consultation with the host economy to include experts from other APEC economies, EGEE&C and international organisations. Prior to the review team’s visit, the host economy will prepare a background briefing outlining the status of the energy sector in the host economy, as well as the economy’s current energy efficiency policies and programs. The stakeholders may be policy makers and government officials responsible for energy policies, representatives of the private sector, industry associations, academia, or non-profit organisations.
The Peer Review Team will then visit the host economy and stakeholders selected by the host economy. Over the first three and a half days, the experts will hear presentations from government officials and relevant stakeholders and then conduct site visits. The remaining one and a half days will be spent preparing and working on findings, achievements and recommendations, and providing a presentation of preliminary findings, achievements and recommendations to government officials and relevant stakeholders. After their visit, the Peer Review Team and APERC will prepare a preliminary draft review report. The host economy representatives will review the draft and provide their comments to APERC, if any. The draft review report will then be presented by APERC to EWG members for their endorsement. The results will also be reported at the APERC workshop to be held in conjunction with the EWG meetings.
The key outputs for PREE Phase 10 will be:
1) Conducting a PREE in Indonesia
a) This PREE will differ from PREE Phase 3(EWG 02 11) because it will focus on industry and commercial buildings.
b) Significant progress has been made since 2011 in particular in enhancing data collection activities. This will support the experts in the PREE to make more detailed and relevant recommendations.
2) A PREE report detailing the findings, achievements and recommendations for energy efficiency goals and action plans based on the strategies and circumstances of the host economy. The report will cover a variety of issues such as institutional framework, goals and strategy, data collection and monitoring, policy measures, education, etc. The report is expected to have around 30 recommendations and about 50 pages of length. It will be published on the APEC and APERC websites after the endorsement of EWG.
3) An EEP Workshop in conjunction with an EGEE&C meeting. The topics of the EEP Workshop will be industrial energy efficiency policy. It was selected in consultation with EGEE&C delegates during the September 2019 meeting. This selected topic is intended to support the PREE in Indonesia. The workshop will last for one day and will be co-located with the associated EGEE&C in Taipei city, Chinese Taipei. The Energy Efficiency Policy Workshop aims to promote “high-performance” energy-efficiency policy measures in developing economies in the APEC region by:
a) Delivering capacity building in energy efficiency policy
b) Providing examples effective energy efficiency policy
c) Enabling the sharing of information and experiences among APEC economies
d) Providing travel support for travel eligible economies
Representatives attending the EGEE&C meeting will all be invited to attend the EEP Workshop as well as several invited experts based on nominations. Due to the high degree of turnover between EGEE&C meetings, EEP Workshops are organised as stand-alone events, unless representatives nominate to repeat a topic in additional detail (as was done with the programme evaluation workshop in PREE Phase 6).
4) A workshop summary report based on the results of the EEP workshop
a) The Workshop Summary Report shall be no more than 15 pages in length not including appendices. It includes a summary of each speaker’s presentation and any Q and A relating to the presentation. There will also be a summary of discussion occurring in the breakout session of the workshop including any recommendations to improve APEC cooperation on energy efficiency policy made by the participants or experts.

A wide variety of experts have been involved in recent PREE Phases. They have mainly come from government, academia and international organisations (such as the IEA), with a majority having a strong background in engineering or energy efficiency policy implementation. The experts involved in PREE Phase 10 will depend on nominations but it is anticipated that they will share similar expertise to those involved in previous editions. In particular candidates with knowledge on energy efficiency in the building or industrial sectors, an expert familiarised with similar economic development conditions to those of and a local expert with profound understanding of the Indonesian energy sector will be highly regarded. Female expert nominations will also be regarded particularly favourably.
1) Relevant recommendations aim to help host economies to promote energy efficiency policies and formulate them more effectively. The host economy should see these are a valuable contribution to their policy discussion.
2) Provide policy recommendation that can be implemented by the host economy
3) Help the host economy understand the barriers to policy implementation
4) Facilitate communication with a variety of relevant stakeholders should include representatives from government ministries, research institutes, industry associations, green building associations, electricity, oil and gas market regulators, consumer associations, local governments, and other relevant groups
5) Build energy efficiency capability in the host economy
6) Share the incites gained with other APEC economies
The EEP Workshop: The EEP Workshop provides a capacity building opportunity for APEC members, particularly developing economies, to strengthen their ability to develop robust energy efficiency policy. For economies that have already undergone a PREE, the EEP workshop provides an opportunity for them to review implementation of the PREE recommendations in a particular area and to share experiences and results with other APEC economies.
1) The EEP Workshop should build capacity for Participants;
2) Strengthen participants ability to develop robust energy efficiency policy;
3) For economies that have already undergone a PREE, the EEP workshop provides an opportunity for them to review implementation of the PREE recommendations as well as to share experiences and results with other APEC economies; and
4) The PREE project also serves to provide host economies with experience in the review and recommendations process for local experts.
a) The policy makers and government officials of the PREE host economies who are responsible for energy efficiency policy. They gain valuable recommendations on how to improve their energy efficiency policies, including goals and strategies, institutional frameworks, financial incentives and R&D. Other major stakeholders from the Indonesian energy sector, including representatives from government agencies, research institutes, industry associations, energy companies, electricity and gas market regulators, consumer associations, local government, and other relevant groups. In the particular case of Indonesia, these institutions include:
- Directorate General of New, Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources
- Directorate General of Electricity, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources
- Ministry of Industry
- Secretary General of the National Energy Council of Indonesia
- Ministry of Public Works and Housing of Indonesia
- Industry associations: Indonesia Cement Association, Indonesian Ceramic Industry Association, Housing developer associations, etc.
b) APEC economies can also benefit from PREE through APERC’s result dissemination efforts such as the summary report and workshop presentations. The widespread understanding of energy efficiency measures recommended in PREE in the APEC region can help to achieve the energy efficiency goals of APEC as a whole by providing best practice and leading edge thinking across the region.Visiting and hosting experts will also benefit by learning from the PREE process, which in turn will help their economy in the long run.
c) In the long term, businesses and consumers benefit indirectly, from lower energy costs, improved energy efficiency policy and programmes, and reduced carbon and noxious emissions.
