Energy Efficiency Global Forum

The Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP) and IIEC have finalized plans to support the Governments of Palau and the Cook Islands to develop standards and financial mechanisms for efficient, clean cooling. IIEC will provide technical assistance in the design and implementation of appropriate financing mechanisms to facilitate the market transformation to high-efficiency and climate-friendly inverter-type air-conditioners (ACs) in the commercial sector with focus on the hotel sector in Palau and the Cook Islands. Appropriate financing mechanisms will be developed in collaboration with Financial Institutions (FIs) and electric utilities in the selected countries to support AC suppliers and commercial customers for adoption of high-efficiency and climate-friendly ACs.

International Institute for Energy Conservation (IIEC), a leading international not-for profit non-governmental organization, with a mandate to promote energy efficiency and clean energy solutions, with headquarters in USA, is seeking a highly qualified individual to work on energy efficiency initiatives primarily throughout Asia, Pacific and Africa.

The report makes the case that M&V should be a critical aspect of any energy efficiency project or program in order to ensure value for money, justify continued or increased funding, as well as provide the basis of performance-based payment mechanisms. M&V is essential to assess resource savings and to ensure that savings persist over time. Energy efficiency practitioners use M&V for several reasons, such as, to: improve engineering design and project costing; enhance energy savings through adjustments in facility operations and maintenance; document financial transactions; enhance financing for energy efficiency projects; and support development of broader energy efficiency programs.

IIEC is the lead agency carrying out a GHG accounting and capacity building project for five cities in India. Funded by the Global Environment Facility, the project is being implemented by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), in cooperation with India’s Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD). The project supports the cities’ broader goals under the ongoing Sustainable Cities program.
