Industrial Energy Efficiency-Cambodia (IEEC)

Rubber Sector:

  • Substitution of rubber dryer uses Diesel as fuel with hot air dryer using waste rubber wood as fuel.
  • Substitution of rubber dryer using diesel as fuel with producer gas by installing waste wood based gasifier.
  • Replacement of Cup Lumps washer/ cleaner with energy efficient drums and installation of high-pressure fan flat /fish tail like nozzles.
  • Installation of Capacitor bank to improve power factor.

Under this component the project activities will be managed by NCPO-C with Department of Energy Techniques, Industrial Techniques of Ministry of Industry, Mines & Energy (MIME) and other relevant institutions, NGO's, and technology suppliers to deliver the following outputs:

  1. Energy efficiency projects for cumulative 45,000 TOEs per annum of energy savings and related potential economic savings are identified by 40 enterprises participating in the quick scan process and appraised by project experts (also refer Component 4 for scale up).
  2. At least 12 pilot IEE projects for cumulative 15,000 TOEs per annum of energy savings over the investments duration are implemented from selected industrial sectors, partnering in the project.
  3. Results of the pilot projects both in economic and environment context are compiled in a compendium for effective dissemination.

1) The objectives of the implementation of Industrial energy efficiency pilot projects are:

  • To develop and standardise (tailor made as per sector requirement) an energy audit and reporting format, worksheets and auditing tools to be used by the enterprises participating in Pilot project, quick scan and on their own audit using training tools.

This will help in uniform recording and reporting for ease of compilation of results achieved and also monitoring and verifying the resource (Energy & Material) and environmental savings through implementation of GEF-IEE project.

  • Energy performance benchmarking

Energy performance benchmarking focuses on a comparative analysis of energy use per unit of physical production, otherwise known as energy intensity. Determining the facility's energy intensity by fuel type specific indicators is necessary to workout potential of savings. Worksheets provided in energy audit format, energy calculator and GHG calculator will be used in collection and compilation of data. Comparison of energy intensity of selected sector and sub-sector with similar or comparable sector, equipment and/or product in Cambodia as well as other countries will be done. The available benchmarking reports for the sector industrial sectors will also be useful for benchmarking energy equipments like motors, fans, pumps, compressors, Diesel Generators, boiler etc.

  • Compendium of case studies from Pilot project

Further, the project component 1 will also involve the documentation of relevant energy project profiles and case studies on energy efficient technology applications in developed and developing countries, and in ASEAN. A compendium of IEE techniques and technology applications will also be prepared. More importantly, a computerized database of IEE technology application projects implemented in Cambodia, ASEAN and in the developed countries will also be prepared. For wider dissemination of benefits of IEE, results achieved from pilot projects and quick scan participating units also will be compiled in a user friendly compendium both in English and Khmer language. Output of component 1 will contribute to stimulate the creation a national market for IEE product and services and enabling environment for steady growth of IEE performance.
Energy efficiency strategy, coupled with low-carbon alternative technologies offers the comprehensive solutions and most direct path in achieving energy security and sustained emissions reduction potential. At the heart of this potential is the transfer of already proven cleaner and efficient technologies from one country to another where it has not yet been applied. Transfer of climate change related technologies has been identified as an effective strategy both from business perspective as well as global response to climate change.

Experience has shown that it’s not enough to merely invest in new technologies. For example, although many low-carbon technologies are already commercially viable, mainstreaming their use and transferring them to other markets is still a significant challenge in most countries. In some cases technologies are still too expensive compared to fossil-fuel technologies. In other cases, their uptake is slowed by market development barriers, limited access to information, inadequate government policies, regulations and procurement programmes, and insufficient or poorly implemented technology codes and standards.
