Energy efficiency-unep

  1. 1. UNEP Regional Climate Change Networks Using Regional Climate Change Networks to promote action on mitigation and large-scale deployment of energy efficiency and low-carbon technologies in developing countriesLeonardo ENERGY Power Quality Forum 2011Eindhoven University of Technology, The NetherlandsThursday, January 27, 2011 Energy Efficiency and Climate Change• IPCC AR4 => EE key role in CC mitigation• EE could save 7.1 gigatonnes of CO2 emissions by 2030 (IEA)• Energy efficiency measures are cheaper, cleaner and faster to install than any other energy options Large scale deployment of EE in developing countries => Major goal and challenge for the international community 1
  2. 2. Energy Efficiency for development• Economic growth and development => energy demand growth• Tendency to focus on Energy supply (increasing the country’s production capacity)• Developing countries have higher energy intensities => highly benefit from investments in energy efficiency measures UNEP Regional Climate Change Networks• In line with CoP 16 outcome on the establishment of a Technology Mechanism and related CTCNObjectives:• Speed the development of good policies,• Foster the sharing of best practices and information, and• Accelerate the deployment of climate friendly technologiesStatus:• 3 Networks operating: SEA, Central Asia and LAC 2
  3. 3. Related initiatives and Centres of excellence (1)Global Market Objective: Global phase out of inefficient lighting andTransformation for Efficient promote a quick transition to efficient lightingLighting (en.lighten) technologies Budget: $20 Million ($5.0 GEF) Partners: Philips, Osram The en.lighten Center of excellence Focus: Market transformation of the lighting technology. Analysis and global recommendations on key lighting sectors through 6 international task forces: 1. Country lighting assessments, market and data analysis 2. Standards & labels 3. Product quality, testing, monitoring, enforcement and verification 3. Policy, regulations and financial incentives 4. Consumer and environmental protection 5. Off-grid lighting 6. CommunicationsRelated initiatives and Centres of excellence (2)Global Solar Water Heating Objective: Accelerate commercialization and marketMarket Transformation and transformation of solar water heating, thereby reducingStrengthening Initiative the current use of electricity and fossil fuels for hot water preparation in residential, private service sector and public buildings and, when applicable, industrial applications. Budget: $5.72 Million ($3.75 GEF) Partners: ICA, UNDP, OME, OLADE, IIEC, ESTIF Global Solar Water Heating Knowledge Management Platform Focus: Market transformation of SWH technology. 1. Analysis and dissemination of lessons learnt and best practices 2. Facilitation of cross-country information exchange and networking 3. Catalyst to stimulate and initiate sustainable market transformation of SWH technology in developing countries. 3
  4. 4. Related initiatives and Centres of excellence (3) Low Carbon DevelopmentGlobal Technology Needs Objective: Identify and support deployment of mitigation andAssessment (TNA) adaptation technology priorities of countries Budget: $11 Million (8.18 GEF SCCF)Integrated Approach for Objective: Use the design and development of a new town as anZero Emissions Project opportunity to introduce best practices in architecture and urbanDevelopment in the New planningTown of Boughzoul, Algeria Budget: $30.24 Million ($8.24 GEF)Facilitating Implementation Objective: Support developing countries make a “quick start” onand Readiness for technology-based mitigation activities that are compatible withMitigation (FIRM) the evolving concept of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) Budget: $ 8 Million for 8 countries UNEP – ICA Partnership Partnership to leverage the mission and expertise of both organizations in support of: • Accelerating the development and introduction of energy efficiency policies and mandatory standards • Capacity building for energy efficiency • Developing energy efficiency market assessments and business cases • Supporting the development of regional centers of excellence for priority technologies and • Promoting/strengthening national and regional energy efficiency institutions. 4
