Worldwide electricity consumption is expected to grow by 60 percent by 2030, driven in part by the increasing use of equipment, appliances, lighting, and other energy using devices. In the countries with the longest running appliance energy efficiency policies, the policies have contributed to reduction in energy consumption of key appliances by half.
This stream aims to prepare participants to successfully advance appliance energy efficiency policy. It does so by introducing the fundamentals to effectively design and implement an energy efficiency policy package integrating regulations, information, and incentives to move appliances towards higher efficiency standards.
The stream will offer a mix of lectures, discussions, and interactive activities for the participants.
On completion, participants will have a solid understanding of the “big picture” as well as the tools to leverage their own expertise and interest to contribute to advancing energy efficiency in appliances and equipment.
