Industrial Energy Efficiency-Cambodia (IEEC)

Step 4 2nd training period

International experts provide advanced training to national trainees both in classroom and on the job during IEE assessment, technology gap analysis, review (technical, financial and environmental) of identified options for implementation, implementation of techno-economically viable options and performance evaluation of implemented options.

Step 5 Implementation of Energy Management System (EMS) and operational improvement measures

Trainees work with the manufacturing enterprises that have taken part in the training program to fully operationalize the energy management systems developed and reviewed by international experts, and to implement initial operational improvement measures.
Operational improvement measures often are low cost and do require only staff time and external expertise. In case of cost intensive options, capital investments might be needed, the GEF-UNIDO project will provide part financial assistance for implementation which will be useful for on the job training in implementation.

Step 6 Reporting of implemented EMS and improvement measures

Trainees will be required to work (based on individual contract) with the manufacturing enterprises to report annually, for the first two years after implementation, to the GEF-UNIDO project/ Agency for Energy Efficiency on energy performance improvements and energy savings achieved.

The envisaged composition of the group of professionals to be trained as expert consists of representatives from the Department of Industrial Techniques, Energy Techniques of MIME, Institute of Technology of Cambodia, the National Cleaner Production Office-Cambodia being established by UNIDO, managers/engineers from 13 participating enterprises, and about 10 independent consultants and experts providing energy efficiency or environmental management systems technical advisory services.

Local suppliers of relevant technologies (kilns, boilers, etc.) are also trained in IEE. Potential local suppliers are promoted, to ensure more cost-effective technology and more reliable after-sales service.

The project will also train personnel from existing technology suppliers in Cambodia (e.g., suppliers of kilns, boilers, generators, gasifiers etc.). Past experience has shown that technology suppliers can be an important source of knowledge for enterprises. In addition, for a small country like Cambodia much of the technology that is imported needs to be adapted to local scale of operations, and the energy efficiency of adapted technologies is very dependent on the manner in which it is done. In addition, the project will promote the development of local suppliers of technology where they do not exist. On the one hand, this creates a network of after-sales services, which is critical for the sustainability of renewable energy generation and energy efficiency, and on the other hand, it will encourage local suppliers to manufacture equipment locally to reduce the initial capital investment.

Web-based guidance tool/manual on IEE developed

The project will address the issue of sustained replicability by using an ICT (internet based) approach that will populated with training material, relevant information and contact details of technology suppliers, experts, relevant links with useful sites on IEE.

Project component 3: Strengthening of institutional framework for industrial energy efficiency

Project component 3 aims for stronger institutional framework in place to ensure long-term support for energy security and reduced consumption efforts in enterprises. The component is specifically aimed to build capacity in relevant Government department and regulatory agencies for energy generation, distribution and policy makers.
Under this component project will work intensively with the Department of Energy Techniques (DOET) of Ministry of Industry, Mines and Energy, Climate Change Department (CCD) of Ministry Of Environment (MOE), and financial institutions like IFC and private /public sector, National and International banks to ensure long term sustainability of industrial energy efficiency implementation in Cambodia and deliver the following outputs:
