Carbon Trust unveils Energy Efficiency Accelerator for ASEAN F&B companies

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 14 -- The Carbon Trust has launched the UK-ASEAN Energy Efficiency Accelerator (the Accelerator) to support businesses across Southeast Asia scale up energy efficiency improvements. 

Set to run until March next year, the Accelerator will primarily focus on the food and beverage (F&B) sector in Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, supporting companies at different stages of their energy management journey to help them realise the importance of energy efficiency, according to a statement.

The F&B sector has been identified for this targeted support as it is one of the most energy consuming industrial sectors in the region, with potential to save up to 4.5Mtoe in energy consumption (or 35 per cent of total current energy consumption).

To help companies improve their understanding of where opportunities for energy efficiency exist, a series of open access energy savings guides covering seven of the most common processes in the F&B sector, including refrigeration, cooking, distillation and drying, are now available.

In addition, the Accelerator will be delivering free to access capacity building workshops and technical assistance to companies of all sizes – ranging from small to large multi-national companies. 

As part of the Accelerator, a series of online events related to energy efficiency in the F&B sector will be hosted.

Together with knowledge partner Spirax Sarco, the Accelerator will deliver a virtual training session on optimising steam system generation, distribution, and end-user efficiencies in the F&B sector on Jan 26.
