ASEAN Energy Management Scheme (AEMAS)
The overall objectives of the scheme are:
1) To reduce energy consumption from the manufacturing industrial sector in ASEAN

This scheme is the world’s first regional certification system for energy managers and energy end users. Partly funded by the European Union under the Switch Programmed, it is currently being implemented by ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) in eight (8) ASEAN Member States, namely: Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. In the national level, the scheme was launched by Yang Berhormat Dato’ Seri Peter Chin Fah Kui, Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water Malaysia on 19th July 2011 at Marriot Hotel, Putrajaya.
