Project Summary

There are many methods to reduce electricity consumption. One of them is Minimum energy performance standard (MEPS). MEPS is a specification, containing a number of performance requirements for an energy-using device,that effectively limits the maximum amount of energy that may be consumed by a product in performing a specified task.

The main objective of the project is to hold a Workshop that help economies and stakeholders to share information and experiences on developing Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) in order to improve the energy efficiency in industrial production of APEC economies.



Relevance

Relevance - Issues: Global power use increased more or less steadily until 2000, when it began seeing a more pronounced growth. The world's electricity consumption amounted to approximately 23,398 billion kilowatt hours in 2018, a huge portion of which are wasted due to outdated technologies. Using outdated and asynchronous equipment, which consumes a lot of electricity will causes overuse of electricity. Overuse of electricity will definitely result in a shortage of electricity, which cause a lot of severe consequences such as production interruptions, financial losses, etc. In other words, overuse of electricity is one kind of energy inefficiency. For that reason, the wise and effective usage of power is becoming increasingly important.

Overuse of electricity is not a new problem in APEC. Several methods have been applied to reduce electricity consumption. One of them is Minimum energy performance standard (MEPS). MEPS is a specification, containing a number of performance requirements for an energy-using device,that effectively limits the maximum amount of energy that may be consumed by a product in performing a specified task. A MEPS is usually made mandatory by a government energy efficiency body. It may include requirements not directly related to energy; this is to ensure that general performance and user satisfaction are not adversely affected by increasing energy efficiency.

According to a report in 2017 of EWG on “Compendium of Energy Efficiency Policies in APEC Economies”, MEPS has been applied in many APEC economies. In the U.S., the state of California was a pioneer in the introduction of MEPS. In order to reduce the growth in electricity use, the California Standards. It is mandatory for certain types of products manufactured in or imported into Australia Energy Commission (CEC) was given unique and strong authority to regulate the efficiency of appliances sold in the state. It started to adopt appliance efficiency regulations in 1978, and has updated the standards regularly over time, and expanded the list of covered appliances. MEPS programs are made mandatory in Australia by state government legislation and regulations which give force to the relevant Australian to meet the MEPS levels specified by the relevant Australian Standards. MEPS in China have been introduced since 1989 with subsequent amendments. China has MEPS for a broad variety of products, including residential, commercial, industrial, and transport equipment and appliances. In Viet Nam, realizing that many businesses uses outdated technology resulting in driving up product prices and lowering product competitiveness, since 01 January 2015, according to domestic law, household appliances, industrial equipment and office equipment will not be allowed to be imported and manufactured if this equipment does not meet MEPS standards.

MEPS is an energy-saving policy option that is faster, larger, and more certain. It is aimed at promoting energy-saving activities in industry, supporting businesses to improve energy efficiency, reduce production costs, improve competitiveness, and meet requirements under the law. This project aims to hold a Workshop that help economies and stakeholders to share information and experiences on developing MEPS in order to improve the energy efficiency.

Eligibility and Fund Priorities: Information and experiences shared in the Workshop will contribute to achieving APEC's aggregate energy intensity reduction goal of 45% by 2035 which was agreed at the APEC Leaders Meeting in Honolulu in 2011. By developing MEPS, the project will ultimately contribute to wiser and more efficient use of energy and therefore, to APEC's aggregate energy intensity reduction goal of 45% by 2035.

Relevance - Capacity Building: Through project’s outputs (Workshop; Summary report), the proposed project will help to enable participants from member economies – particularly developing economies – to exchange information, share experiences on developing and applying MEPS to improve energy efficiency. The project will build capacity of participants on key drivers and consequences of overuse electricity consumption in industrial production and the effect of MEPS in reducing electricity consumption to improve energy efficiency. Also the project will facilitate discussion of case studies and policies approach to MEPS implementation; and identify policy recommendation on MEPS issues in the APEC region.

Developing economies who send participants to the Workshop will benefit most since their participants’ capacities are built while economies that are unable to send participants may somehow get information from uploaded presentations and summary report.

Objectives

The main objective of the project is to provide an opportunity for stakeholders share information and experiences in developing Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) to reduce electricity consumption in industrial production.

Alignment

Alignment to APEC: In 2015, APEC Leaders committed to a new type of urbanization featuring green, energy-efficient, low-carbon, and people-oriented development and encouraged ongoing efforts toward energy efficient and low-carbon development in urban settings. Also in 2016, they reaffirmed their readiness “to further energy cooperation, including areas such as renewable energy sectors and energy efficiency to create necessary conditions for trade, investment and economic growth, ensuring that all the economies of the region have access to energy”.

By developing MEPS, this project will contribute to implement the Leaders’ aspirational goals to reduce aggregate energy intensity by 45 percent by 2035 as well as their commitment to new type of urbanization featuring green, energy-efficient and people-oriented development.

Alignment to Forum: This project will contribute to meet the aspirational goals of APEC Leaders in 2016 to reduce the aggregate energy intensity by 45% by 2035 and their commitment in 2015 to new type of urbanization featuring green energy-efficient and people-oriented development.

The project also aligns with EWG Strategic Plan 2019-2023 when it contributes to “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”.

Description

1) Pre-Workshop Survey

We will conduct a survey to assess the current electricity consumption issue in industrial production and MEPS experiences of APEC economies. The survey will be send to all 21 economies’ EWG focal points for responses from (i) EWG focal points and/or (ii) participants that economies sent to attend the Workshop. The outcomes of the survey will be included in the Summary Report.

2) Workshop

A 2-day in-person Workshop will be held in Viet Nam in 2023.

We expect there will be 6-10 speakers and about 60 participants attending the Workshop. The first day of the Workshop will be presentations of speakers, followed by Q&A Sessions. The second day of the Workshop will be presentations, Q&A and a Session of Recommendation. Each Session will take 60-90 minutes, including Q&A.

The presentation may include the importance, benefits and best practices of employing MEPS to reduce electricity consumption in industrial production. Mandatory Energy Labelling Scheme (MELS) is related to MEPS, as it aims to assist industrial producers to compare the energy efficiency and make more informed usage and purchasing decisions so presentations of speakers may refer to MELS as well. The Session on recommendation with participation from panellists and participants will focus on suggestions at economy and APEC levels for consideration of activities/ policies to promote developing MEPS in energy sector. Organizers will encourage recommendations with substantial guidance on applicable actions or requirement on necessary resources to implement such recommendations. Also, the Organisers will try to include gender issue in the discussion sessions and encourage speakers to include gender-specific issues in relation to energy consumption. 

The Workshop will gather various stakeholders such as energy-related government officials, private sectors (domestic and international energy companies), energy associations, international organisations (for example International Energy Agency, ASEAN, OECD, UNEP, etc). These stakeholders should be involved in energy and related activities/policy-making for developing and applying MEPS for energy efficiency.

This project’s objectives include but not limited to build awareness and capacity on for participants, especially the regulators, policy makers and businesses working on existing work in energy sector; discuss on how to develop and apply MEPS for energy efficiency. There will be a discussion about the challenges and opportunities when policies makers and business work on this field. Session on recommendation will not only include further activities/ initiatives but organizers will also encourage participants to provide recommendations on actionable policy (policies) after the Workshop that can contribute to achieving the project’s goal.

The post-event evaluation will gather participant responses on project outputs and outcomes that will assess whether the Workshop was successful in its aims (for example: whether the objectives have been met; whether knowledge, capacity and/or awareness level has been increased; and which recommendation or action the participants consider most relevant and applicable to their own economy/institution).

3) Summary Report

A summary report (ranging from 15-20 pages) with outcomes and recommendations from the Workshop will be presented to EWG. Such report will be composed of the following, but not limited to, sections: introduction of the project; summaries of the presentations made at the Workshop, including best practices; summaries on discussions at the Workshop; suggested recommendations made by Workshop attendants and the project consultants. Participants will provide recommendations by 2 ways: (i) during discussions at the Workshop, (ii) at the Evaluation forms that are provided at the end of the Workshop.

This Report will be an APEC Publication.

Targeted audience of the summary report: project attendants, EWG, Expert Group on New and Renewable Energy Technologies, Expert Group on Energy Efficiency and Conservation (EGEE&C), Policy-makers/ regulators in the  energy especially those who have experiences in developing MEPS for energy efficiency (reduce electricity consumption in industrial production) in APEC economies.

Purpose: summarise discussions and recommendations at the Workshop.

Outcomes: There are 2 expected outcomes:

1. Increased knowledge and awareness amongst paticipants in relation to MEPS and how they may be applied in APEC economies, and the key policies, legal and regulatory settings needed for succesful application of MEPS. The Workshop is expected to increase capacity for participants, especially the regulators, policy makers and businesses working on existing work related to developing and applying MEPS in energy sector as well as share best practices in developing MEPS to reduce electricity consumption in industrial production. Awareness level of participants will be measured by the Post-event evaluation; key policies, legal and regulatory settings will be made at Discussion session and written in the Summary report.

2. Improved coordination and collaborative actions to reduce energy consumption in the APEC region. In short term, the organisers expect these stakeholders can integrate knowledge and information absorbed from the Workshop to apply in practice. Participants from developing economies will also have a chance to learn about best practices from APEC economies, from which they can draw lessons, experiences to apply in their economy. In medium and long term, the recommendations made at the workshop will be a resource/ reference guide for APEC economies to consider in developing policies at economy’s or APEC’s level. This outcome will be measured by question(s) in the Evaluation form, asking participants which recommendation they consider most relevant and applicable to their own economy.

Beneficiaries: The direct project participants and users of the outputs are:

a) Government officials and policy-makers, businesses from APEC economies, who are directly involved in energy sector especially those who are working related to MEPS in industrial production. They may come from Department of Energy, Energy Regulatory Body, Energy Efficiency Agency, etc.

b) Policymakers from all APEC economies can learn from each other how to develop and best apply MEPS to reduce electricity consumption for energy efficiency through sharing information on best practices of policies and regulations. Business organizations also play key roles and will be engaged in the project.

c) Local and international experts from private sectors specialized in industrial production, technology, construction, consultancy in the energy sector especially MEPS development. 

d) Local and international experts from academic sector who has experiences in research in energy especially MEPS development and energy efficiency.

e) Representatives from international/ regional organizations such as Expert Group on New and Renewable Energy Technologies, Expert Group on Energy Efficiency and Conservation (EGEE&C), Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), International Energy Agency (IEA), United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), ASEAN etc.

Dissemination

Hard copies (presentation of the Workshop) will be provided to participants if needed.  APEC’s official website will be the main one to upload the Summary report. For participants, PO will provide soft copies of Workshop presentations through emails prior to the Workshop as well as hard copies of Workshop presentations at the Workshop venue. 

Electronic copies of Workshop presentations and summary report will also be circulated to speakers and participants. All Workshop presentations and materials will be uploaded to Google drive (or Dropbox) and the link will be shared to speakers and participants to download prior to the Workshop. All the meeting documents may be uploaded at Meeting Document Database (MDDB) after the Workshop. Organizers will encourage participants to circulate documents domestically to assure effectiveness in dissemination. A project’s summary report will also be prepared and submitted to the Energy Working Group (ranging from 15 to 20 pages) with outcomes and recommendations from the Workshop will be presented to EWG. Target audience of the summary report: Workshop speakers and participants, EWG/ EGEE&C and Expert Group on New and Renewable Energy Technologies focal points and other interested persons/organization. 

The Summary Report will be an APEC publication. APEC Publications Toolkit is guidance on how an APEC report should be written and presented. The summary report should comply with APEC Publication Guidelines, IP Policy, and Logo Guidelines. 

No intention to sell outputs arising from this project.

 This project can potentially addresses three of the five Gender Criteria (Skills, Capacity Building, Health; Leadership, Agency, Voice; and Innovation and Technology) as detailed in Appendix G of the Guidebook on APEC Projects, Edition 12. In particular:

a)     The project shall contribute to supporting pillar #3 of women’s economic empowerment on “Skills, capacity building, and health”. In that regard, the project will help develop the knowledge and capacity of participating policymakers and regulators, busineses, especially women.

b)     The project will also support pillar #4 on “Leadership, voice, and agency”, as 4 female speakers (40%) are expected to join the workshop. It could improve information on female participators in energy sector, especially in MEPS development and application.

c)     The project will support pillar #5 on “Innovative and Technology”, which could build the MEPS to reduce electricity consumption in industrial production in APEC economies.

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in 2019 revealed in a report that women represent 32 percent of employees in the renewable energy sector . Moreover, according to information of IEA[1] in 2020 that gender diversity in the energy sector is vital for driving more innovative and inclusive solutions for clean energy transitions all over the world. Women’s participation in the energy sector is below that of the broader economy and varies widely across energy sub-sectors.

Therefore,  

a)   Failure to consider gendered interests, different levels of access to resources and the different needs of men and women can limit the effectiveness and sustainability of energy program and policies and other energy use-related development activities (Report “Gender and energy” of UNDP published in 2013)

b)   Establishing gender as a pillar of energy strategies at the domestic and global levels will produce a swifter and more-inclusive transition to renewable energy. Gender equality, along with a wider sharing of the benefits from the global energy transformation is essential to shaping positive social and economic development outcomes. Women provide valuable perspectives on key decisions, from investment priorities to project design (Report “Renewable Energy: A Gender Perspective” of International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)[2] published in 2019).

Realizing the importance of gender equality and the unprecedented opportunities of women in energy sector, which is mentioned above, PO will also consider to incorporate gender issues into the project by adding this issue in the discussion session. Women will be directly and actively involved in the project. Project proponents of this Workshop are women. The Workshop organizers will be careful to include women speakers and participants in the Workshop. The organizers will encourage women to be involved during the preparatory stage and actual activity. Invitations sent to EWG, EGEEC, ENGRET representatives will take due consideration of gender concerns by encouraging the suggestion and nomination of female speakers and participants.

In addition, the project proponents will ensure that the evaluation forms to be distributed at the end of the Workshop will include information on gender for disaggregating of data for project assessment and will help in evaluation of specific responses of women and men.

PO is committed to collect sex-disaggregated data for all speakers and participants (and not only the APEC funded) from the project event. This data will be included as part of the submission of the Completion Report to the Secretariat when the project completes and will serve to guide future POs on their own gender parity targets. This data will be used to assess compliance with the project’s gender targets at the conclusion of the project, with performance data shared with APEC members.

PO expected that at least 40% of Workshop participants and at least 30% speakers/ moderators will be female.

Linkages

Engagement: APEC EWG will take the leading role in implementing this project. Information will be disseminated to other relevant fora (Expert Group on New and Renewable Energy Technologies, APEC Expert Group on Energy Efficiency and Conservation) to encourage their participation in the Workshop. Organizers will work closely with relevant regional and international organizations (International Energy Agency, ASEAN, OECD, UNEP, UNESCAP) and representatives from APEC groups with related policy mandates (eg: ABAC, SMEWG, PPSTI, etc) to get inputs, benefit from the perspectives and expertise from these groups and enhance engagements. 

Previous Work: Energy consumption is a popular topic when there were many APEC projects have touched on this subject through many years. For instance, project EWG 13 2017A On  Integrated Energy System Planning for Equitable Access to Sustainable Energy for Remote Communities in the APEC Regions using North Sulawesi as a Pilot Project/Test Bed; Energy-Saving Windows: Survey of Policies and Programs to Promote Advanced Window and Glazing Technologies in APEC Economies (EWG 13 2009A); Low Carbon Intelligent Operations for Textile Industry in APEC Economies (IST 03 2012A); Establishing Low Carbon Energy Indicators for Energy Strategy Study in APEC Low Carbon Town (EWG 10 2012A); Research on Forms of Low-Carbon Energy System and Best Practices for APEC Sustainable Cities (EWG 12 2018S); etc. 

Although there were many projects mentioning the energy/electricity consumption, none of them discussing about way to develop and employ Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) to reduce electricity consumption especially in industrial production. Realizing this scarcity, the Organisers intend to focus on this topic. The main objective of the project is to provide an opportunity for stakeholders share information and experiences in developing Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) to reduce electricity consumption in industrial production. There will be a discussion about the challenges and opportunities when policies makers and business work on this field. Session on recommendation will not only include further activities/ initiatives but organizers will also encourage participants to provide recommendations on actionable policy (policies) after the Workshop that can contribute to achieving the project’s goal. Organisers realise that these topics have not been covered in the previous projects. 

APEC’s Comparative AdvantageAPEC is the best source of funding for this project because APEC has been working actively on energy efficiency agenda. The results of the Workshop will contribute to the overall APEC work.

Sustainability

APEC economies can take in recommendations and spread the experiences and lessons in a wider range. Experts can make use of results or outcomes of this project in expected future projects. Participants can create cooperative network or means of future exchange of ideas and discussions. Possible future actions to be reflected in the summary report will be discussed at EWG, in close consultations with other related APEC sub-fora. In the Workshop, since the final Session will be devoted to floor discussion, participants will be encouraged to suggest policy/ actionable recommendations, which will then be submitted to EWG for their review. This can be a valuable resource for economies and organizations to consider their future activities, actions, regulations.

Besides, since the beneficiaries of the workshop will be government officials, business involved in MEPS development and application, it is important that these stakeholders share the Summary Report which include best practice and recommendations come out of the workshop to other relevant stakeholders (officials, businessman) and transform it to promote linkage between renewable energy and remote area in their economies.

The summary report will suggest next steps (future APEC Workshop, seminar, events, capacity building, study, research, survey etc.) based on the discussions of the Workshop. Such summary report will be submitted to EWG.
