Capacity Building for Energy Standards and Labels (2013)
The Standards and Labelling Programme is a 5-year initiative designed to remove barriers to market transformation of energy-efficient products and services in Kenya. Currently, there is a need to enhance the capacity and ability of the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS), Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), Ministry of Energy (MoE), Kenya Anti-Counterfeit Agency (ACA) and National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) to enforce energy performance compliance of imported products. The objective of this project is to prepare and deliver a training programme to these key stakeholders.
IIEC was tasked to 1) Prepare and design a training course on Energy Performance Standards and Labels for policymakers, implementers and distributors/ importers; 2) Develop a training program; 3) Deliver the training course including theoretical presentations, exercises elaborating the theory presented, case studies and real on-spot verification to test the degree of comprehension of the participant; 4) Develop a structured manual that covers the course material and which can be used for subsequent reference (copies of slides used, exercises, solutions, manuals, etc.); and 5) Develop evaluation questionnaires and evaluate the training courses based on questionnaire feedback.
