The APEC EGEE&C promotes energy conservation and the application of energy efficiency practices and technologies in the APEC region. It does this through advancing the application of demonstrated energy efficiency practices and technologies; contributing to international efforts to reduce the adverse impacts of energy production and consumption; and improving the analytical, technical, operational, and policy capacity for energy efficiency and conservation within APEC Economies.
CLASP envisions a world in which appliances, equipment, and lighting are built for maximum energy efficiency and minimal contribution to global climate change. With the objective of accelerating the implementation of comparable, transparent, and effective S&L policies globally, CLASP's Global Research Program works toward deepening S&L best practice knowledge by producing technical studies in collaboration with S&L experts worldwide.
In support of APEC EGEE&C, CLASP – in collaboration with the Australian Department of Industry, the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority of New Zealand, the International Copper Association, and Underwriters Laboratories Inc. – serves as the project implementer for Catalysing Monitoring, Verification & Enforcement Best Practices Exchange and Building Compliance Capacity in the APEC Region. As the project implementer, CLASP brought its extensive experience in energy efficiency standards and labeling (S&L) for appliances and equipment to support APEC’s monitoring, verification, and enforcement (MV&E) activities.
