National Workshop on accelerating energy efficiency in buildings

Ecofys, a Navigant company, together with partners from the Integrated Development Group (IDG) and the Housing and Building National Research Center (HBRC) kicked off the policy dialogue to accelerate efforts to increase energy efficient cooling and heating in residential buildings in Egypt in September 2017.

During the national workshop, we exchanged on barriers and drivers for energy efficiency with experts and stakeholders from ministries and authorities, municipalities, finance institutions, energy suppliers and utilities, research institutes and project developers. We clarified the goal of the project, its structure and the time plan in which stakeholders input will be requested. We shared the questionnaires with stakeholders and cross-checked that the right questions were asked with respect to the context of the country and its current energy landscape.

The next round table is scheduled for April 11th, 2018 to discuss the draft policy recommendations based on the field interviews conducted.

This project is part of the International Climate Initiative. The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) supports this initiative on the basis of a decision taken by the German parliament (Bundestag).
