Workshop on Energy Efficiency for Appliances and Labeling: Challenges and Opportunities for the Central American Region

Workshop Goals:



  1. To promote increased cooperation and coordination among technical bodies, regulators, accreditors, standards developers and other stakeholders in Central America(CA) and the Dominican Republic (DR), to increase effectiveness of programs and policies on energy efficiency.
  2. To explore opportunities for regional cooperation in measuring compliance to advance the implementation of energy efficiency standards and labeling programs for equipment and appliance.
  3. To increase the technical capacities of the main actors responsible for designing and implementing energy efficiency measures in equipment and appliances in CA and DR.
  4. To create political awareness of the opportunities for energy efficiency, especially in the context of sustainable energy program for all (SE4ALL), where the region has an international commitment to double its rate of increase in energy efficiency. This objective also contributes directly to the fulfillment of global sustainable development goals of UN 2030.
  5. To identify opportunities in the measurement area, specifically on the role of metrology institutes in the region to support the development of energy efficiency ratings (indexes) in CA and DR.
  6. Explore opportunities for collaboration and coordination with national, regional, international and multilateral organizations that are implementing energy efficiency programs in the region.
