Accelerating Adoption of Energy-Efficient Lighting, Appliances and Equipment: An Introduction to Proven Technology and Policy Solutions

25 July 2017 - 09:00, Webinar

The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with UN Environment, is hosting a webinar highlighting the findings of six new policy guides developed by the United for Efficiency initiative. The guides address indoor and outdoor lighting, room air conditioners, household refrigerators, electric motors and motor systems, transformers and fundamental policies that are applicable to all of these technologies.

Well over half of the world’s electricity is consumed by the products addressed in these guides. Yet many developing and emerging economies are just starting to explore opportunities to transform their markets with energy-efficient products. A well-designed set of policies can greatly accelerate this transition, enabling them to leapfrog past outdated technologies to superior, cost-effective alternatives.

The aim is to give policymakers a basic understanding of technical, market and policy considerations so that they can enhance energy efficiency activities in their countries. The framing of each guide is based on United for Efficiency’s Integrated Policy Approach, which is being successfully applied around the world. The content was developed with insights from top experts in industry, civil society, academia and international organizations.
