Each PREE Peer Review focuses on the energy efficiency policies of a single volunteer APEC member economy, referred to as the 'host economy'. The work is carried out by Review Team of experts from other member economies and international institutions jointly selected by the host economy and APERC.
The Review Team visits the economy and interviews a range of people knowledgeable on energy efficiency issues. These may include representatives of government ministries, research institutes, industry associations, energy companies, electricity and gas market regulators, consumer associations, local government, and other relevant stakeholders. A draft report is prepared by the Review Team and agreed to by the host economy. It is then circulated to APEC Energy Working Group (EWG) Members for discussion at the next EWG meeting. After EWG approval, the draft report is officially finalized.
In some cases, a "Follow-UP PREE" may also be conducted, which is designed to assist former PREE host economies in implementing the earlier recommendations of the PREE review teams.
More information on PREE may be found in Part A (Principles and Guidelines of PREE) and Part B (PREE Review Project Guidelines) of the document APEC PREE on Energy Efficiency.
