Energy Efficiency in Appliances in the MENA region (Webinar) – 04.04.2019

It was calculated that about 30% of the predicted global increase in energy demand will come from the Arab region[1]. Further, the primary energy demand has increased by around 56% between 2005 and 2015 and is still increasing. The high subsidies have led to a great overconsumption resulting with 40% worse than global average in some of the lowest energy efficiency levels worldwide[2]. This shows the urgent need to put more focus on Energy the residential, industrial and commercial sectors to reduce emissions. Increasing energy efficiency in appliances is highly important and needs to be addressed from top down and bottom up. Thus, during this webinar three experts will speak on labeling and standards, the results of a recent study will be discussed, and concrete barriers and success from a national level will be presented.

  • Labeling and Appliance Standards for Energy efficiency from an international perspective (Michael Scholand)
  • Energy efficiency in appliances in the MENA region (Sara Elhag)
  • A national perspective on Energy Efficiency in appliances and success stories (Kawther Lihidheb)
