Impact Assessment

Information on the impact of the stakeholder-specific and integrated policy modules developed for Egypt will be added as it becomes available.

Roundtable workshop to tackle energy efficiency barriers

Ecofys, a Navigant company, reconvened with stakeholders in round tables to share draft policy recommendations based on more than 300 interviews conducted by the National Energy Research Center and the GFK Market Institute among public authorities, project developers, financial institutions, technology suppliers, energy utilities and Jordanian residents.

Stakeholders debated when conflicts occur between the policy recommendations to find solutions and agree on a prioritized list of recommendations, which specifies the responsibilities of each stakeholder group and the time their actions are needed.

Workshop on economic viability of energy efficient investments

Ecofys, a Navigant company, offered a capacity training workshop on economic assessment methods of efficient heating and cooling systems for buildings to Engineers in the MENA region. Engineers were trained to understand that the value of energy efficient options reside in comparing the value of the option to a baseline using the Net Present Valuation method and understanding the sensitivities of different input parameters affecting this value, e.g. capital cost, efficiency, lifespan of the technology, residual value of investment, interest rate, inflation rate, discount rate, risk premiums and fuel prices.

A dynamic Excel-based tool was distributed to participants. Participants were trained to apply it on their own case studies in their day to day projects. Participants came from Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and the UAE.

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).
