ECCJ held the online seminar for ASEAN member states on human resource capacity building for energy efficiency and conservation in building secter in FY2022 as ECAP29
Since the Paris Agreenment took effect in 2016, the efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and realize low carbonization were addressed as more important issues, and under the direction of METI to benefit the private sector, ECCJ has been working in cooperation with JASE-W to promote Zero Energy Building (ZEB), a major energy conservation policy in Japan’s building sector within ASEAN. These activities have resulted in the creation of ZEB category to the ASEAN Energy Award in 2019 which contribute to the dissemination of ZEB and establishment of the international standardization (ISO / TS23764) of Japan’s ZEB promotion approach (ZEB Family Concept) in September 2022.
Based on the above background, in this year’s ECAP29, ECCJ will implement the workshop aiming to promote ZEB in ASEAN with the theme of an effort toward carbon neutrality (CN) in the building sector as one of the activities under AJEEP Scheme 5, which was launched this year.
