49th APEC Workshops for Transformer - 2017 March

The 49th APEC workshop for Energy Efficiency Standard of Transformer

Date: 28 March 2017,  Venue: Jeju, Korea 

The one-dayworkshop is jointly organized by the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC),the International Copper Association (ICA) and the China Standard CertificationCompany (CSC), which will provide knowledge and experience obtained fromdesigning, planning and implementing improved efficiency of distributiontransformers. The workshop aims at supporting the long-term goal of the project"EWG 05 2016A Reducing Losses in Power Distribution through- ImprovedEfficiency of Distribution Transformers" with adoption of the upcoming IEC60076-20 standard and ensuring replicability of good practices on promoting EEstandard, which will drive technology changes and increase of DT's energyperformance in APEC economies in the long term.

Main Objectives:

Provide aregional forum to share experiences and lessons learnt from leadingpractitioners and best-practice through EE policies and regulations aiming forimproved efficiency of distribution transformers in the residential, commercialand industrial sectors; and formulate policy recommendations and strategies forfuture acceleration of energy efficiency practice in the APEC economies.
