APEC Leaders have agreed to an APEC-wide regional goal of reducing energy intensity (energy per unit of GDP) by at least 45 percent by 2035, using 2005 as a base year. The Peer Review on Energy Efficiency (PREE), which is coordinated by APERC, is one mechanism designed to help the APEC economies achieve this goal.
The PREE project consists of three activities:
- Peer review, which provides recommendations for the host economy on how implementation of their energy efficiency action plans could be improved with a view to achieving their energy efficiency goals;
- Compilation of an updated “Compendium of Energy Efficiency Policies of APEC Economies” to share information on energy efficiency policies and performance; and
- Energy Efficiency Policy Workshop, which succeeds Cooperative Energy Efficiency Design for Sustainability (CEEDS) project as a forum to further discuss key issues in the previous PREEs.
