Workshop at Bahauddin Zikriya University on Roadmap for Energy Efficiency 
Punjab Energy Efficiency and Conservation Agency (PEECA) organized a workshop on Roadmap for Energy Efficiency at Bahauddin Zikriya Unversity, Multan on May 3, 2019. Relevant stakeholders took part in the workshop both as participants and speakers. They discussed different aspects of energy efficiency during construction of buildings, adoption of clean energy resources, high quality solar panels and its durability, energy auditing standards and HVAC systems. They all agreed on the point that having better collaboration between government, academia and industry to implement energy efficient measures for a secure future is the need of the hour. For a country like Pakistan where energy security issues are observed, there is a potential for energy growth as well.

Workshop at Maisonette, Lahore on Consultation for Compliance & Capacity Building on Energy Conservation Building Codes (ECBC)
A workshop on “Consultation for Compliance & Capacity Building on Energy Conservation Building Codes (ECBC)” was held on April 25, 2019 in Lahore. Relevant stakeholders were invited so that the code reviewed and modified by PEECA could become a part of the legislation. Importance of Punjab’s Energy Conservation Building Codes (ECBC), its effect on multiple sectors of the society and economy, role and impact of stakeholders actively taking part towards implementation of building codes, especially for new buildings, saving potential after code implementation, building system parameters (such as building envelope, electrical and lighting system, HVAC system, etc.), building area and/or power consumption to be considered for building code implementation and other aspects were discussed in detail.

Training Workshop at University of Engineering & Technology, Lahore on Energy Efficiency and Conservation 2019
A two-day training workshop was organized on April 23rd-24th 2019 on Energy Efficiency and Conservation at Al-Khawarizmi Institute of Computer Science (KICS) –UET to spread awareness among students and technical staff on how to increase energy performance and efficiency of buildings, industries and industry related equipment and tools. The speakers and trainers gave enlightening talks on the importance of benchmarking for more energy efficient buildings, switching to renewable/clean energy, BLDC fans, efficient pumps and motors, solar system design using simulation and other relevant topics. All the speakers and students participating were presented with shields and certificates at the end of the session. Feedback received from participants was very positive. 

Workshop at University of the Punjab, Lahore on Energy Efficiency and Conservation
A workshop on Energy Efficiency and Conservation on April 17, 2019 at University of the Punjab, Lahore was organized where Chief Guest Dr. Syed Pervaiz Abbas (Additional Chief Secretary, Energy Department, Government of the Punjab) talked about the importance of an energy consumer’s behavioral change, overcoming the energy crisis in the country, promotion of Sustainable Energy Efficient Environment and achieving energy security. Relevant speakers stressed on conserving energy for a sustainable future, adoption of renewable energy resources as well as modern and cost effective technologies. Electrical vehicles, green buildings, saving potential aspect of industries and Retrofitting of Government College University by PEECA as a pilot project were also discussed in detail. Apart from this, an overall view on ESCO model and PEECA’s implementation of this model for Solarization of public buildings in Punjab was also discussed to give the audience a broader view of the concept and its advantages.

Workshop at University of Management and Technology, Sialkot on Building Bridges for Energy Efficiency and Conservation
Punjab Energy Efficiency and Conservation Agency (PEECA) organized a workshop at Sialkot titled “Building Bridges for Energy Efficiency and Conservation” on March 26, 2019. The audience were informed that for a sustainable energy efficient environment, all stakeholders need to take responsibility and contribute to energy efficiency and conservation policy making, and that achieving energy security is not merely a goal, it also has to be made to last long. Speakers relevant to the energy sector put light on the current energy scenario, its adverse effects on the economy, importance of demand-side management, renewable energy resource exploitation and the need for government, academia and industrial collaboration for a sustainable energy efficient environment. 

Workshop on Delivering the Transition to Energy Efficient Lighting in Residential, Commercial, Industrial, and Outdoor Sectors in Pakistan
National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (NEECA) organized a Stakeholders Consultative Workshop in Collaboration with UNEP for developing a Global Environment Facility (GEF) grant project on “Delivering the Transition to Energy Efficient Lighting in Residential, Commercial, Industrial and Outdoor Sectors in Pakistan”. The project would focus on the following four components: Developing a National Efficient Lighting Strategy; Strengthening Monitoring, Verification and Enforcement (MVE); Designing for a Lighting Funding Window; and Accelerating the use of LEDs and controls. MD Punjab Energy Efficiency & conservation Agency (PEECA) played important role in this workshop and also explained how PEECA is contributing to saving energy in Punjab.
The transition to efficient lighting in the residential, commercial/industrial and outdoor lighting sectors in Pakistan, would result in the reduction of two million tonnes of CO2 annually. Annual energy savings would be approximately 4 TWh, or 5.5% of total national electricity consumption, and 35.3% of lighting-related electricity consumption. Annual savings in terms of reduced electricity bills for consumers would be approximately 408 million USD.

Workshop on Energy Efficiency tools in COMSATS
In this workshop, training on “Energy Efficiency Self-Assessment Calculation Tools” was given by Mr. Salman Butt, communications consultant PEECA.  Mr. Khalid Saeed, Head of Energy Research Centre, CIIT, Lahore gave his opening remarks about the workshop and also briefed about energy efficiency, energy performance and demand side management.
PEECA has promoted the culture of energy conservation by practically demonstrating the self-assessment EE calculation tools. In this workshop people from academic as well as industrial background attended and had friendly discussion on Energy Efficiency Calculation tools. COMSATS especially invited Engineers from MONNOO Group of Industries to participate and share industrial feedback from the Engineers working in the field.
Mr Mian Ahmad Yasir from Pakistan Engineering Council declared this workshop Continued Professional Development (CPD) activity, which further encouraged the young engineers to participate in this workshop.
Under this CPD activity 36 registered engineers from PEC earned CPD point. Participation certificates were also distributed among those engineers.
