Tha Bar Wa boosts energy efficiency application through a Training of Trainers (ToT)
Tha Bar Wa project organized a Training of Trainers (ToT) on Energy Efficiency (EE) conducted by international energy efficiency consultant Mr. Rajat Batra focusing on Food and Beverage (F&B) sector. 10 trainees from engineering, energy management and related background participated in this training.
“I really enjoyed this course. It focuses on F&B sector especially small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in Myanmar. Hence, I am satisfied that I would help our industries in future. After I learnt energy efficiency, I realized how energy efficiency connects with recent power breakdown. I learnt that we need to make sure the right and effective use of power first. Otherwise, even Electric Power Corporation (EPC) would not be in a position to supply enough power we need. Hence, we need to understand energy efficiency, it is beneficial for the individuals as well as for the country.”
“I only knew how we use power and the way machines are set up in factories. However, I was not aware of how to use the power or electricity efficiently. I always thought how to set up machines for the factory and building as an electrical power engineering. I only focus on power usage. Though, I realized that effective and efficient using energy is important and if we know it well, it is very beneficial for us and the factory, I realized this in this training.”
Recent research by WWF’s Asia-Pacific office showed a 74% increase in Facebook posts selling wildlife items in Myanmar between 2020 and 2021.
Tha Bar Wa project developed the sector specific Environmental Management Plan (EMP) checklist and guidance with the support of an international consultant, in order to assist small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in food and beverage (F&B) sector in preparing and implementing effective EMPs.
The paper seeks to share lessons learned from the project and advance sustainability finance in the region.
It would be part of a campaign called ‘Voices for Rivers’. Mohinga, the nation’s favourite dish and one that always features fish, was the perfect entry point. Without healthy rivers, there would be no mohinga.
