Barrier Removal for Cross Sectoral Energy Efficiency

Project Summary

The goal of this project is to reduce GHG emissions in Lebanon by improving demand side energy efficiency through the creation of a multi-purpose Lebanese Centre for Energy Conservation and Planning. The Centre, which is expected to be a “soft” and flexible institutional set-up, will simultaneously undertake barrier removal activities and provide energy efficiency services to the public and private sector industries as a set in becoming an independent, commercially viable private corporation. There will be a broad range of supporting activities including information dissemination, awareness programmes, and policy analysis and programme design.
