The 7th Energy Efficiency Policy (EEP) Workshop in Makati, the Philippines, on October 15, 2023, focused on capacity-building for effective electrification and energy efficiency policies. Aligned with the APEC 61st EGEEC and 59th EGNRENT Joint meeting, the one-day intensive in-person workshop featured speakers from APEC economies like Indonesia; Korea; Japan; the Philippines; and the United States. Twenty-eight participants from 10 APEC economies discussed key issues on electrification and energy efficiency, emphasizing electrification, demand flexibility, and time of use (TOU) as the enablers to bridge energy efficiency and renewable energy. The importance of investing in smart grid infrastructure was highlighted to address the intermittency of variable renewable energy.
