Asean studies efficient energy investment
A benchmarking study on energy efficiency investments among countries in the Southeast Asian region will kick off in the Philippines in February.
A collaborative effort between the British Embassy and the Makati City government for a forum on "Addressing Climate Change through Energy Efficiency Investments" will partly set the way for the launch of the so-called study. A press statement from the British Embassy noted that the "Market Feasibility Report on Energy Efficiency in Southeast Asia: Investment Opportunities," will tackle how energy efficiency "opens doors to new investment opportunities in six Southeast Asian countries."
Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines will be studied. It has been emphasized that "the Philippines will be the first to launch the study." Details of the undertaking will have to be presented by ReEx Capital Asia Pte Ltd. managing director Frederic Crampe and to be joined by British Embassy's Economic Attache Mark Canlas who will discuss his research on "Fossil Fuel Subsidies in Southeast Asia."
Discussions on environmental awareness initiatives, anchored on the theme "Building Sustainability-Energy Efficient Design" is also on the agenda. The presentation is to be led by Arup managing director Raul Manlapig.
