About The Forum
Efficiency improvements in the electricity sector have the potential for big savings in total power use and large reductions in Green House Gas (GHG) emissions.
However, improvements in energy efficiency can be hindered by: lack of knowhow to recognize and achieve potential savings; low priority relative to other costs for many users; significant upfront cost subsidies and un-priced externalities such as climate change.
Driving Efficiency and Competitiveness Across the Power Sector Value Chain
The 2nd Philippine Energy Efficiency Forum in Cebu will have a central theme that aims to address the challenges of energy security an climate change via energy savings and decarbonization of electricity supply.
The 2nd PEEF in Cebu will discuss topics on energy efficiency technologies, energy policies and consumer education that need to be integrated across the electric power sector value chain to improve energy security, enhance global competitiveness and accelerate economic growth.
The forum gathers business leaders, energy experts and policy makers to share in their insights on the potential as well as identify the key drivers for energy efficiency within the electric power sector value chain- generation, grids, commercial, residential and industrial use of electricity.
Now on its second (2nd) year, PEEF aims to sustain energy efficiency initiatives and activities started during its first two runs, spearheaded by the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) and together with its partners - the International Finance Corporation (IFC), Schneider Electric Philippines, Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation, Philips Electronics & Lighting, Inc., ABB, Inc., First Gen Corporation and Manila Electric Company (Meralco) among others.Top
