Establishment of the ASEAN Energy Manager Accreditation Scheme

aemas project map

ASEAN member countries are aware of the benefits gained by implementing energy efficiency activities. Some countries are currently proposing training courses for energy managers to build their technical skills. Nevertheless, the effective integration of energy management systems by end-users has not succeeded because energy managers are lacking managerial skills. Also energy managers have no access to the decision making level of their organisations. Therefore, to actually incorporate energy considerations into the management policy of a company, energy management role must be assigned to a senior manager. This is where the Energy Manager Accreditation Scheme (AEMAS) adds value to the existing efforts.

The overall objective of the SWITCH-Asia "ASEAN Energy Manager Accreditation Scheme (AEMAS)" project was to reduce energy consumption from the manufacturing industrial sector in ASEAN and to cut greenhouse gas emissions in ASEAN member countries. The Project had established the ASEAN Energy Management Scheme (AEMAS) through which it  had trained and certified energy managers who then implemented sustainable energy management systems within their industries/companies.

At the same time the project had increased the professional standing of accredited energy managers. Furthermore, upon adoption and implementation of an Energy Management System, the industries had been able to seek certification under the AEMAS scheme. Certification were obtained only after demonstrating actual implementation of a sustainable energy management system and achievement of measurable energy savings.
