Information, Education and Communication Campaign
Policy measure

The Philippine National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Program is a medium-term comprehensive programme for promoting energy efficiency in the Philippines (APERC, 2010).


The specific objectives of NEECP are (APERC, 2010):

  • "To reduce the impact of the increase in prices of petroleum products and electricity through the implementation of energy efficiency and conservation measures.

  • To promote cost avoidance/savings for fuel and electricity without sacrificing productivity.

  • To help protect the environment.

  • To generate cumulative energy saving for the planning period 2007–14 by 9.08 million boe, which is to a deferred megawatt capacity of 210.56 MW and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of 2 917.07 giga-grams (hereafter Gg) of CO2 at the end of planning year."

Component 1 of the NEECP, the Information, Education and Communication Campaign, aims to promote the efficient use and conservation of electricity and fuel in all energy-consuming sectors (APERC, 2010).

Implementation

"Among the activities conducted under the IEC campaign are seminar-workshops for target participants in commercial, residential, industrial and government buildings; fuel economy runs for road transport vehicles; and the use of television, radio and print media ads to reach wider target sectors." (APERC, 2010)

Challenges
No identified challenges.
Outcomes

According to APERC (2010), "about 25 seminar-workshops on energy conservation were held across the economy in 2006 until the first quarter of 2007 with participants from the sectors of government, business and transport, as well as academia, especially elementary and high school students and teachers".
