Supervision of on-site Energy Conservation practical examination in the qualified energy manager training program in Malaysia
<Dispatch of Experts>
Under the instruction and financial support of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), the Energy Conservation Center, Japan (ECCJ) visited Malaysia on November 21, 2018, where they observed energy conservation practical examination in two locations as part of the Leader Training Project in the Qualified Energy Manager Training Program of the AJEEP Scheme 2 activities.
(1) In a compound building, ECCJ observed an energy conservation audit of a commercial building chiller system and discussed the results.
(2) In a national measurement institute, ECCJ observed an energy conservation audit of the air conditioning and lighting facilities in a training building and discussed the results.
As the second part of the AJEEP Scheme 2 Qualified Energy Manager Training Program, energy conservation practical training was implemented in Malaysia, and ECCJ participated in the training observation and the discussions of the results.
(1) In the morning of November 21, an energy conservation audit of a compound building was implemented, and ECCJ made energy conservation improvement proposals including the reduction of the setting temperatures for the chillers. It is planned to measure electric power and collect data such as the piping temperatures and flows over the following two-week period.
(2) In the afternoon of November 21, ECCJ observed an energy conservation audit of a national measurement institute, making proposals for improvements with regard to chillers, cooling towers, lighting, and air compressors, such as the installation of chiller jackets and the change to LED lighting. ECCJ instructed the auditors to incorporate their opinions when creating the report for the training in Japan.
