USAID ICED II Assists the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources to Draft National Competency Standards to Measure and Verify Energy Performance in Split Air Conditioning Systems

7 October 2019

Indonesia has formally adopted the ISO 50015: 2014 on Measurement and Verification (M&V) of Energy Performance into Indonesian National Standards (SNI) last year. Thus, developing a national competency standards (SKKNI) on the M&V of energy performance will reinforce better energy efficiency project implementation in Indonesia. USAID through ICED II has been working together with the Directorate of Energy Conservation of Indonesia’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR DEK) to develop the national competency standards. After a series of focused group discussions, ICED II and MEMR DEK developed a final draft of national competency standards of the M&V. On October 2-3, 2019, ICED II held a pre-convention workshop to validate the draft and engaged related stakeholders and captured inputs to improve the national competency standards. Once the draft is validated and inputs are incorporated, MEMR will propose the final draft of the national competency standards of the M&V of energy performance to Ministry of Manpower for verification process. A total of 50 participants from various government units, professional associations, and universities participated in the discussion.
