NEW DELHI, 8 March 2019 – The Alliance for an Energy-Efficient Economy (AEEE) invited Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance (PE2) president Alexander Ablaza to present the role of non-profit organizations (NPOs) in advancing the transformation of the energy efficiency (EE) market through EE legislation and fiscal incentives during the International Energy Services Conclave 2019, held in this city from 6-8 March 2019. The international gathering was co-organized by the non-profit AEEE and the Government of India, through the Bureau of Energy Efficiency of the Ministry of Power.

Speaking alongside PE2 in the panel discussion on NPOs were key representatives of the International Energy Agency, the ESCO Committee of China Energy Conservation Association (EMCA), British High Commission New Delhi of the UK Department of International Development, US Agency for International Development and the Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation.

PE2’s Ablaza shared with the global and local audience how an NPO could partner with the legislative and executive branches of government in supporting a legislative process aimed at passing an EE law after over 28 years of refiling the policy measure in Congress. As invited resource of the Senate and House of Representatives’ committees on energy, PE2 contributed macroeconomic expertise in estimating the economic, energy security and climate change mitigation impacts, as well as the 200% recovery of fiscal incentives through additional tax revenue collections.

The EE bill provides for obligations of medium and large energy consumers, fiscal incentives for entities investing upfront project capital, energy service company (ESCO) accreditation, minimum energy performance standards enforcement, the roles of national agencies and local government units, and the empowerment of the Department of Energy. The bill was jointly approved by both chambers of the 17th Congress on 16 January 2019 and is being prepared for approval by the President of the Philippines.
