The Inter-Agency Energy Efficiency and Conservation Committee (IAEECC) was created by virtue of Section 9 of Republic Act No. 11285 of the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act. The IAEECC was formally organized with the issuance of Department Order No. DO2020-01-001 entitled “Organizing the Inter-Agency Energy Efficiency and Conservation Committee” on 9 January 2020.
The IAEECC is chaired by the Department of Energy (DOE) with representatives from other government agencies as committee members. The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Public Sector Management Division (EPSMD) of the Energy Utilization Management Bureau (EUMB) serves as the Committee Secretariat.
The IAEECC was created to evaluate and approve government energy efficiency projects, and to provide strategic direction in the implementation of the Government Energy Efficiency Program (GEMP). Under Section 10 of Republic Act No. 11285 of the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act, the IAEECC shall have the following powers and functions:
(a) Prepare an annual assessment of opportunities for energy cost reduction in state-owned and leased buildings and facilities designated by the IAEECC: Provided, That each assessment shall be completed each year: Provided, further, That the assessment shall be made available to the public: Provided, finally, That the assessment shall include:
(1) Data for the preceding five (5) years on energy consumption and costs including anticipated energy consumption and cost projected for the next three (3) years for each state-owned and leased building and facility designated by the IAEECC;
(2) Energy conservation measures deployed in state-owned and leased buildings and facilities designated by the IAEECC during the preceding year;
(3) Evaluation studies of the cost reductions and other benefits realized through the deployment of energy conservation measures; and
(4) Energy conservation opportunities based on audits, technical analysis, or other methods of determining such opportunities and associated energy saving operations and maintenance procedures and capital projects for each state-owned and leased building or facility designated by the IAEECC;
(b) Review all proposed capital projects and energy cost operating budgets of agencies designated by the IAEECC and recommend energy conservation measures which would reduce operating costs in state-owned and leased buildings or facilities;
(c) Provide any officer or entity of government, technical and consultative assistance concerning energy cost management or conservation;
(d) Annually recommend specific operations and maintenance procedure modifications and capital projects for state-owned and leased buildings and facilities designed to reduce energy consumption and costs;
(e) Conduct surveys, audits, technical analysis, and other research or investigations related to government energy efficiency projects and the GEMP as may be necessary to support the preparation of the NEECP and the objectives of this Act;
(f) Issue a report describing the status of government energy efficiency projects and the GEMP, listing obstacles to building energy efficiency improvement together with related recommendations for statutory change, and identifying opportunities for public sector energy cost reductions not addressed by this Act or the programs developed pursuant hereto; and
(g) Develop, after study of existing or emerging energy conservation technologies, guidelines as may be necessary or desirable to aid the work of the IAEECC in furtherance of the objectives of this Act.
