Finally, I finished the updated version of ASEAN Electrical Tariff 2012. I made the first one in February last year (check here), and received many acknowledged from a lot of people coming from various institution, energy company, government, etc. I also received a lot of revision from many friends, such as Mr. PHUC Tiet Vinh from Enerteam Viet Nam – who corrected the price for Viet Nam, and Richard Jones. Big thanks for all.
In this update table, I provide you with a comparison data, price as of February 2011 (when I published the first version) and price as of September 2012 (updated version). I also provide additional note and some useful links for you. So that you may check the data by yourself. Of course, I put some color to make it good.
So, here we go the preview for Brunei! (more…)

Concept Note: The Need of Energy Indicators for ASEAN June 27, 2012Posted by benisuryadi in Data and Statistic, Uncategorized.

Next week, 2-6 July 2012, I will fly to Cambodia for the 30th Senior Officials Meetings on Energy (SOME) and its associated meetings. Responsible for ASEAN Energy Database System, I prepared a Concept Note regarding the development of ASEAN Energy Indicators. Here I share with you the draft note.
Like many other countries around the world, ASEAN Member Countries are also facing the complex and interlinked challenges of reducing energy consumption and associated GHG emissions while also meeting in harmony with the economic growth and the environmental sustainability of the region. Particularly for ASEAN, as described in the 3rd ASEAN Energy Outlook (ACE, IEEJ and National ESSPA Teams, February 2011), under Business-as Usual Scenario, the region’s primary energy consumption will have a faster annual growth rate 4.5% per annum to reach almost three times higher from 511 MTOE in 2007 to 1,414 MTOE in 2030. This is higher than global energy demand increases by 40% between 2009 and 2035 (New Policies Scenario, IEA World Energy Outlook, 2011). (more…)

As the update for the ASEAN Electrical Tariff 2011, please find the Electricity Tariff in Lao on the table below. It’s very interesting to see how the tariff in lower and middle Residential class were rose on average 15% and 3% ever year, respectively while upper class stay the same.
Even better, the electrical tariff for industry is declined.
Importance of Energy Data and Statistics May 26, 2011Posted by benisuryadi in 02 - Weekly Features, Data and Statistic.

How can wise decisions be made on how energy is consumed if there is no data to back up those decisions?
Energy statistics and consumption data are of paramount importance. Energy consumption statistics and indicators allow for monitoring and analysis of energy consumption trends. Energy statistic would be useful to government energy agencies, analysts, oil companies, traders provides a strategic importance in the dissemination of up-to-date and relevant information on the current energy situation.
Statistics, data, analysis on resources, supply, and production of energy sources are usually available from national energy administrations, as well as from international bodies. Ideally statistical data covers origins, uses and supply of all sources and carriers of energy, as well as transfers and transformations. When it comes to energy consumption statistics – consumption of energy by end-use sector and especially by end-use application – data can be patchy, hard to obtain and compare among others due to different definitions and coverage of end-use sectors across countries.
International Fuel Prices 2009 – GTZ December 22, 2010Posted by benisuryadi in 01 - Daily Short, Data and Statistic, Energy Prices.

Fuel taxes are an important source of revenue for financing the transport sector. They charge road user the costs of transport infrastructure. While 10 US cents per liter may yield the financial resources necessary to maintain the road system, an additional 3-5 US cents can be a source of finance for urban transport.
Numerous countries earn revenues through fuel taxes, which can be used for reducing public transport fares or providing social services. Fuel taxation can shift the burden of indirect negative effects of transport (such as environmental pollution, noise, congestion costs, etc.) onto transport users.(1)
I can resume the oil price for gasoline and diesel in ASEAN as of November 2008 as shown in the table below. All prices is in US$ Cent/litre.
You can download the full GTZ report here, or just wait my publication on Energy Prices in ASEAN on January 2011 with the latest and most update data from 10 ASEAN Member States.

How to Collect Energy Data December 21, 2010Posted by benisuryadi in 01 - Daily Short, Data and Statistic.

One of my biggest fear in the 2011 is developing ASEAN Energy Review (AER). It’s an annual publication on energy statistic in ASEAN Region. Last published is in 2008, with 1996 baseline data, during the period of AEEMTRC project who headed by Dr. Jean-Yves Garnier (now Head of Energy Statistics, IEA).
Collecting data is a monster. As what Mr. Brett Jacobs, South-East Asia Programme Manager, IEA (former Head of Australian Energy Demand Energy Statistics team) shared with me, two thing about collecting data, is a difficult and thankless task. The data respondent are all voluntary, so it’s our mandatory to make their task as easy and as rewarding as possible.
For this AER, I have to collect the data on primary energy supply, energy transformation, energy demand and consumption in the oil, gas, coal, electricity, and renewable energy sectors from 10 ASEAN Member Countries.
Lucky me, I got support from Dr. Garnier and Mr. Brett who generously share some tips about data collecting that I can resumed to all of you.
1) Get official contacts appointed by Member countries
2) Have a close (maybe friendly) relationship with these contacts
3) Regular meetings of contacts greatly helps establishing strong links
4) Limit the reporting burden to the minimum, but be firm with was is needed to do your job
5) Have user-friendly questionnaire, clear, easy to understand, electronic (Excel or internet)
6) Give clear instructions and deadlines and be firm on the deadlines.
7) If people don’t answer or send data on time, explain them the Legal Framework that tasked the collecting data
8) Give fast feedback on the quality of their submissions. Query any data point you think is wrong. Show that you use their data. For info, every year, IEA publish a Report Card to show our contacts as well as IEA policy makers the issues we found on the annual submissions of all our IEA member countries in terms of timeliness, completeness and quality. This is very effective.
9) Prepare document based on the data received and circulate these documents to all your contacts, so they can see that their data is used.
Lot of things to do but also lot of way to do it. I hope this tips are useful for you.
Will share more during my work on AER.
