New Program of Work agreed with K-CEP to Support Pacific Islands Efficient Cooling Efforts
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.
The Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP) is a philanthropic collaboration launched in 2017 to support the Kigali Amendment of the Montreal Protocol and the transition to energy efficient, climate-friendly, affordable cooling solutions for all. K-CEP’s secretariat, the Efficiency Cooling Office, is located at the ClimateWorks Foundation. For more information about K-CEP, please visit https://www.cleancoolingcollaborative.org/.
