United for Efficiency is working with the Governments of Cuba, El Salvador and Honduras to advance policies, strategies and actions for the phase-out of inefficient air conditioners. Emphasis is on an integrated policy approach so that a transition can be sustained by the regional market without continued external support or resources.
LEAPFROGGING TO ENERGY-EFFICIENT AND CLIMATE FRIENDLY AIR CONDITIONERS IN CUBA, EL SALVADOR AND HONDURAS
This GCF Readiness Programme-funded project is working with the Governments of Cuba, El Salvador and Honduras to help the three countries leapfrog to superior cooling solutions. It follows a three-pronged approach: enhancing stakeholder capacity for pursuing strategic priorities, implementing a framework for MEPS and labels for room air conditioners appliances, and creating greater knowledge sharing and learning for consumers from the residential and public sector on purchasing efficient cooling products.
- Training for national stakeholders on benefits and opportunities to promote energy-efficient and climate-friendly cooling overall
- National market assessment on room air conditioners and proposed MEPS and energy labels framework
- Monitoring, verification and enforcement framework developed
- Technical and procedure recommendations to improved sustainable public procurement practices for air conditioners
- Regional workshop to present the updated policies, best practices and lessons learned with other SICA (Central American Integration System) countries
