This presentation given at the 2015 Asia Clean Energy Forum illustrates how two behavioral aspects make a big difference to EE: (1) organizational culture, with top-down and bottom-up commitment; and (2) sectoral culture of commitment and experience sharing. Based on work with Indian industry for over two decades in various energy-intensive sectors (e.g., cement; pulp and paper; and thermal power plants), this presentation explains how sectors perform exceptionally in EE due to their commitment and willingness to experiment and share, both at an organizational level and at the sector level, touching on potential/modalities for replication in other countries.
Energy Efficiency and Demand Side Management
This presentation given at the 2015 Asia Clean Energy Forum shows how changing behavior can produce significant energy savings at industrial sites. It explains how the assessment of an organization’s energy culture is based on Visibility, Accountability, Collaboration, Targeting, Commitment, Motivation, Learning and Progress, executed through data analysis, surveys, interviews and workshops. Organizations can use the results of this assessment to develop an action plan to improve on a combination of dimensions.
This presentation given at the 2015 Asia Clean Energy Forum outlines a strategy to link energy management goals to business objectives through a data-driven approach and demonstrates the success using a case study. By empowering senior management and operators to understand energy, aligning energy management objectives closely with business objectives, and implementing programs strategically, real generated savings can influence business decisions and culture to sustain energy savings.
The presentation given at the 2015 Asia Clean Energy Forum explores why Asian emerging economies need specialized non-bank capital sources to bridge extremely wide gaps in EE and distributed renewable generation investment requirements in the demand-side of their energy markets. Blue Sky’s business model of establishing non-bank EE investment companies (“ESCO of ESCOs”) to mobilize project equity finance can be scaled up in the Philippines and replicated across more Asian developing countries, blending private capital with development finance to mitigate frontier market risks.
This self-paced e-learning course focuses on Energy Efficiency in South East Europe (SEE). While the learning program responds to an articulated need from SEE countries, it can also be expanded to countries in other regions and assist various stakeholders in developing countries to gain a better understanding of the improved delivery of energy efficiency (EE) services to public buildings. The Structured Learning Program for Energy Efficiency in Public Buildings equips different stakeholders with technical and program management skills, tools and knowledge on the “how” of identifying, developing and implementing EE programs in public buildings. Please visit the World Bank’s Open Learning Campus for more information.
This self-paced e-learning course aims to promote improved energy efficiency through the public sector by packaging and implementing dispersed energy efficiency projects in an efficient way through Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPCs) in the face of rigid public procurement and budgeting guidelines/procedures. The learning objectives of this course are to help participants: identify ESPC opportunities in the public sector; define the overall procurement process for ESPCs in a public agency; document case studies on specific country experiences using the ESPC approach; identify how to address the key procurement issues related to the ESPC approach; and develop a “roadmap” for employing the ESPC approach and selecting energy service providers to implement energy efficiency projects in the public sector. The course is based on international experiences with public sector ESPCs collected by ESMAP during 2008-2009. Please visit the World Bank’s Open Learning Campus for more information.
The Policy Pathway publications provide details on how to implement the IEA 25 Energy Efficiency Policy Recommendations. Based on direct experience, published research, expert workshops and best-practice country case studies, the series aims to provide guidance to all countries on essential steps and milestones in implementing energy efficiency policies. The Policy Pathways series is designed for policy makers at all levels of government and other relevant stakeholders who seek practical ways to develop, support, monitor or modify energy efficiency policies. The Pathways can also provide insights into countries’ specific policy contexts, so that each country derives the maximum benefit from energy efficiency improvements.
This presentation is focused on demand responses, covering the potential benefits for utilities and consumers, and highlighting actual experiences in developed and emerging countries, as well as emerging lesson learned.
This presentation is focused on Demand Side Management (DSM), including an overview of what it is and how it compares to Supply Side Management (SSM) and energy conservation. It covers the advantages of DSM and describes how a utility can make more money by selling less electricity. Finally, it covers DSM technologies and provides a financial analysis of energy alternatives.
