Energy Efficiency Improvements and Greenhouse Gas Reductions

Project Summary

The two co-ordinated projects will address the removal of barriers to enhance energy efficiency in the regional context of Egypt and Palestinian Authority. By creating an appropriate institutional setting and adequate capacity in the region to engage in energy conservation activities, alternatives to the existing tendency to meeting the ever increasing demand for power by expansion of generating facilities, will emerge. As such, the project will address both supply and demand side energy efficiency from an economy-wide perspective.
