Energy Efficiency Strategy to Mitigate Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Project Summary

The proposal is targeted at overcoming barriers to increased energy efficiency and the associated reduction in GHG emissions, by focused, practical subprojects, organised into three elements: national capacity building; supporting demonstrations; and project management. The main barriers are: limited experience in incorporating energy efficiency considerations into private and public decision-making; little experience in developing and implementing energy efficiency programmes; uncertainty regarding the energy and economic savings that can be expected from different energy products and programmes; and an undeveloped infrastructure, including the institutions and individuals needed to deliver the technical, managerial and financial services required by an energy-efficient society.
