Project Summary

According to APEC’s Energy Demand and Supply Outlook (7th edition), energy efficiency improvements should be the priority for policy action, as Asia-Pacific’s final energy demand will grow 21% from 2016 to 2050. Raising awareness on this issue is very important, mainly in changing consumption behavior of youngsters that will spread it to their surroundings.

This project’s main event will be held in January 2022, which consists of policy makers and teachers sharing sessions on energy efficiency and conservation (EEC) awareness raising policy and implementation, EEC campaign idea sharing for high school students, and workshop on creating Action Plan Document on EEC awareness raising in APEC economies.

The experience shared in the workshop will be beneficial for participants to promote and facilitate education on energy conservation and efficiency in their respective economies.

Relevance

Relevance – Region: This event is expected to promote and facilitate awareness raising activities of youngsters on EEC in APEC economies. According to APEC’s Energy Demand and Supply Outlook (7th edition), energy efficiency improvements should be the priority for policy action, as Asia-Pacific’s final energy demand will grow 21% from 2016 to 2050. This growth is primarily driven by south-east Asia which is predicted to increase its GDP by 300% and population by 24%.

The role of energy efficiency and conservation is becoming more significant during the COVID-19 pandemic as the energy consumption trend shifts from commercial to household. Raising awareness on EEC will help families to control their energy consumption, thus they can spend their money on other consumption which ultimately will increase national consumption (GDP). Indonesia, as a big economy in economy in the south-east Asia, should also contribute to this improvement. The youngsters, represented by high school students (age 15–18) and their teachers, are expected to serve as the agents of energy consumption behavioral change for their surroundings. Furthermore, within the next 30 years (as a response to the timeframe of APEC’s Energy Demand and Supply Outlook (7th edition)), current high school students would become the leaders and policy makers in their respective economies.  Therefore, preparing sufficient capacity building for the youngsters is a fundamental part of supporting energy efficiency and conservation programs.

To increase the capacity of young people in EEC knowledge, supporting policies are needed that promote awareness of the importance of EEC through the education sector, hence, capacity building related to EEC is also needed by policy makers and teachers, to develop appropriate policies, EEC specific or related curriculum, also strategic learning methods.

This project will build the capacity of policy makers, high school teachers, and high school students through a series of events, which includes knowledge and lessons-learned sharing, and workshop on energy efficiency and conservation (EEC) awareness raising. These project activities are designed to support the overall objective which is to raise youngsters’ awareness on energy conservation and efficiency that eventually lead to energy consumption behavior change and induce the replication/creation of EEC awareness activities to influence their surroundings. The actions are expected to roll continuously in a long term with the help of supporting regulations and strategic learning methods.  This event sits as one of the pillars in achieving low-carbon economy APEC in the future.

Relevance – Eligibility and Fund Priorities: The proposed project meets the funding criteria and priorities of the Sub-Fund on Energy Efficiency and Low Carbon Measures as it comprises events which will contribute to achieving APEC's aggregate energy intensity reduction goal of 45% by 2035.

Relevance – Capacity Building: This project will build the capacity through the series of events, which includes knowledge and lessons-learned sharing and workshop on energy efficiency and conservation (EEC) awareness raising. This project will involve high school students and teachers, and EEC policy makers from five APEC member economies. In the Day 1 of the event, policymakers are expected to share current set of EEC related policies and teachers on lessons learned from EEC educational programs in their respective school. In the Day 2 of the event, the students will be given a 60-minute learning session regarding EEC, then the students will be sharing ideas on EEC activities and campaign methods. In order to sufficiently provide students with EEC knowledge, prior to the event, they will also receive learning materials in the form of e-books and videos.  In Part 3, a workshop will be held which aims to formulate an Action Plan Document on EEC awareness raising in APEC member economies.

These project activities are designed to support the overall objective which is to raise youngsters’ awareness on energy conservation and efficiency through educational events as one of the pillars in achieving low-carbon economy APEC in the future. Through the project, the participants from five APEC economies will gain knowledge on EEC awareness raising. Awareness raising on energy efficiency and conservation is important to maintain the sustainability of APEC economies development (APEC’s goal #1 for capacity building). The Action Plan Document, as the product of this event, will strategically encourage policy making and implementation of EEC awareness raising in APEC economies for long-term (APEC’s objective #1 for capacity building).

Objectives

Energy conservation and efficiency is one of the pillars in achieving low-carbon economies in APEC. This project aims to increase the capacity of the participating policy makers, high school teachers, and high school students from all economies in APEC on energy conservation and efficiency through knowledge sharing and workshop activity, facilitating the creation of Action Plan on EEC awareness raising.



Alignment

Alignment - APEC:  This project supports one of APEC 2020 Malaysia priorities: Driving Innovative Sustainability. APEC economies are the largest consumers of global energy (60%). Energy transition is important in achieving a low-carbon economy in the future, with energy efficiency as one of the important pillars. This project aims to promote and facilitate awareness raising activities of youngsters in APEC economies on EEC.

Alignment – Forum: This project aligns with one of the EWG Strategic Plan 2019–2023’s objective: Promote Energy Efficiency and Low-carbon Communities, especially the sub-objective “Facilitate the exchange of energy smart and low carbon policies, practices and tools among APEC member economies to promote the development of energy smart and low carbon communities across the region and to achieve progress towards the goal of reducing APEC’s aggregate energy intensity by 45 percent from 2005 levels by 2035”. 

This project also aligns with the APEC Expert Group on Energy Efficiency and Conservation (EGEEC)’s objectives, especially in contributing to international efforts to reduce the adverse impacts of energy production and consumption upon our global environment; and improving the analytical, technical, operational and policy capacity for energy efficiency and conservation within member economies.

The above outcomes are expected to be resulted due to the increase of knowledge and understanding of the importance of EEC awareness raising, on why and how EEC awareness raising will be beneficial to promote and facilitate education on energy conservation and efficiency.  The evaluation will be conducted through survey-questionnaires (adopted from APEC Project Evaluation Survey, which are distributed to participants prior to and at the end of the event.

Beneficiaries: This event will be attended by APEC member economies, with expected delegations consisting of high school teachers and students, energy efficiency agencies, and EEC policy makers. These economies are Indonesia, and four other co-sponsoring economies: Singapore, Hong Kong China, Japan, and Chinese Taipei, and other APEC economies which are able to participate in the event.

Each economy will be represented at least by 2-3 policy makers, 1-2 energy efficiency agencies, 2 teachers and 4 students. As for Indonesia economy, there will be at least 6 teachers and 6 students. The policy makers involved are representatives of policy-making authorities in the energy sector and education.  Optionally, policy makers in the education sector are also expected to be present as representatives of each economy. The teachers selected are teachers who are experienced in running the EEC program or at least have knowledge of and teach EEC in schools.

Students who are included in this project are expected to have received EEC material at school and have shown interest and enthusiasm in the topic. The minimum capacity of teachers and students are required and conveyed during the virtual pre-event preparation meeting. These requirements aim to facilitate the holding of events and focus on discussion material for teachers as well as during capacity building for students.

Policy makers, teachers and students as the primary beneficiaries are expected to get important lessons through a series of sharing sessions on EEC initiatives in education from economies that have been actively practicing EEC in education. Sharing sessions of implementation experiences is expectedly seen from the perspectives of regulators, educators and students, both in the aspects of challenges, and opportunities are expected to expand and enrich the horizon of knowledge of the participating economies by preparing sufficient set of supporting policies to be implemented in more strategic and effective ways. The secondary beneficiaries of this project are fellow policy makers, high school teachers and students from APEC member economies, through the dissemination of the Project Report.

The participants were not only diverse in terms of professions, but also in terms of gender and age.  In order to ensure the representation of women and gender equality applied properly in the projects, 1 or 2 out of the 3 or 4 participants from each economy should be female or at least 40% of total participants will consist of women. As for the students as youngsters are represented by high school students (age 15–18), the potential age to serve as the agents of energy consumption behavioral change for their surroundings.  The selection of youngsters at age of 15-18 and high schools depart from the timeframe projection in the next 30 years, current high school students would become the leaders and policy makers in their respective economies.  Therefore, preparing sufficient capacity building for the youngsters is a fundamental part of supporting energy efficiency and conservation programs.

However, to increase the capacity of young people in EEC knowledge, supporting policies are needed that promote awareness of the importance of EEC through the education sector.  Therefore, capacity building related to EEC is also needed by policy makers and teachers, in order to develop appropriate policies and EEC curriculum.

Dissemination

Number of publications: 1

Form: Event Summary Report (will be an APEC publication)

Content:

a)   APEC Youngsters Forum summary report

b)   Action Plan Document on EEC awareness raising challenges across APEC member economies

The target audience: Policy makers, educators (teachers), students, academicians, general public who are interested in EEC in education. The Project Report would be disseminated using email to all APEC member economies and through the APEC website.

There is no intention to sell outputs arising from this project.

Gender

This project is expected to strengthen at least 3 pillars of APEC’s promotion on women empowerment, namely i) Skills, Capacity, Building, and Health; ii) Leadership, Voice, and Agency; and iii) Innovation and Technology. These expectations will be designed to be achieved through the participatory arrangement on gender composition of each economy. In order to ensure the representation of women and gender equality applied properly in the projects, 1 or 2 out of the 3 or 4 participants from each economy should be female or at least 40% of total participants will consist of women. This also applies to speakers/presenters to allow the message deliveries will cover both sides of gender perspectives regarding EEC management.  In organizing activities, each participant has the same opportunity in all forms of contribution such as delivering material or responding to discussions. Likewise, when in breakout sessions where participants will be divided into several professional groups or levels of experience in implementing EEC in the education, members in the group are determined regardless of gender but still pay attention to the balance of the number of men and women in the group. This is done to ensure that the aspirations of both genders are recorded in every decision or action taken during the activity. 

This project will uniquely provide benefits for women in the aspect of enriching EEC information so that women, especially female participants in this project, would use their significant roles in society or and in the education sector to spread EEC knowledge and increase EEC awareness to the people around accordingly with their unique capacities and abilities. Most of the common roles of women in society are as household manager, where their roles majorly will be in the area of family expenditures management. This role will include the expenditure in using energy especially in electric appliances. Through intensive knowledge sharing of EEC management among economies and series of activities during the forum, expectedly women participants will be enhanced in capacity to manage energy use especially in electricity. This impact is expected to happen not only to women as household managers but to all women in general regardless their specific roles in the society as well to other gender (men) which also take part in the household management or other responsibility. In order to ensure the representation of women and gender equality applied properly in the projects, 1 or 2 out of the 3 or 4 participants from each economy should be female or at least 40% of total participants will consist of women.

Linkages

Engagement: This project will involve the Energy Working Group (EWG) and APEC’s Policy Partnership for Science, Technology and Innovation (PPSTI). Aside from aligning with EWG’s strategic plan, this project also aligns with PPSTI’s Strategic Plan (2016–2025): Build science capacity, promote an enabling environment for innovation, and enhance regional S&T connectivity.

Previous work: There are previous APEC initiatives on energy efficiency, e.g. Refrigerator/Freezer Energy Efficiency Improvement in APEC Region: Review of Experience and Best Practices (2017) and APEC Peer Review on Energy Efficiency (PREE). However, this project addresses a different aspect of EEC which is the awareness raising through formal education (school).

APEC’s comparative advantage: Indonesia has implemented awareness raising programs on EEC for students and teachers. The lessons learned from the EEC awareness raising programs implementation in Indonesia and also from economies that have similar programs will be beneficial for other economies, and vice versa, especially economies in Asia-Pacific. APEC is a powerful platform to reach out to those economies.

Sustainability

On the last day of the workshop, each of 5-10 economies participants will be directed to make an Action Plan which contains commitments to make changes on EEC implementation in each economy, in the form of activities or policy recommendations. As a tool for the implementation of the action plan is the creation of a communication platform between participants consisting of 4 platform groups, namely, a communication platform between policy makers and/or EE agencies, teachers, students and all participants of all economies. The platforms will be used to remind and encourage each participant to keep on their commitment being carried out also as a mean to announce or publish every achievement have been made accordingly with the Action Plan or any initiative beyond that.

Following the event completion, every participants is expected to inform the process and accomplishment of Action Plan through the platforms.  PO will organize the creation and administrate the use of the platform. It is hoped that through activating the platform continuously, will drive all economies to maintain their commitments.  The communication platform will be expected also to be a tool to reach out to other APEC economies which have not yet participated in the platform.  By this means, tracking the economies progressively at least six months after the event will be possible.

There are two outcomes will be expected throughout the event execution, considered as short term outcome and long term outcome.  The short term outcome will be the increase of participants' knowledge on why and how EEC awareness raising will be beneficial to promote and facilitate education on energy conservation and efficiency, and the long term will be how each economy or participant, respectively, will actively participating on EEC awareness raising by implementing the Action Plan.

The categorization of considerably long term outcome is used due to the length of time needed to achieve each item of the Action Plan, which may exceed the project’s timeline.  The period of attainment of the Action Plan implementation in each economy can be varied, influenced by various factors, namely the situation and condition of each economy regarding the ability to adopt a new policy, institutional issues of the government of each economy, education’s institutional governance which may affect teachers to perform accordingly, social aspects and boundaries which can affect the students to realize the action, as well as the level of commitment of each participant, etc. To measure the considerably long term outcome, which is how the Action

Plan being implemented, PO will use the communication platform in which will account:

- No. of policy has been made/drafted in supporting EEC education (each economy is expected to make/draft at least 1 new policy)

- No. of teachers' new learning/teaching techniques (at least 1 new technique by each teacher)

- No. of students' actions made (at least 1 action made by each student)

Progress of action plan implementation will be reported by PO in EWG meetings.
