Following a REEEP-funded project that established a regional template for an appliance energy efficiency labelling Directive in the UEMOA countries of West Africa, the Commission has now allocated just under €1 million for labelling implementation at the Member State level.
Standards and labelling (S&L) programmes, already implemented in over 50 countries, have been found to be the most cost-effective measures available for increasing the energy efficiency of electrical appliances. In developing an effective S&L programme, market demand and supply trends must first be considered.
This study aims at providing a baseline analysis of Belize’s energy sector, thus paving the road toward the passing of a new policy. It outlines a preliminary draft of Belize’s energy policy, including priority areas, broad goals and specific objectives.
