Energy Efficiency


The Group of Experts on Energy Efficiency (GEEE) was established to carry out results-oriented activities that help significantly improve energy efficiency in the region, contributing to climate change mitigation efforts; and strengthen regional cooperation, with a view to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The GEEE focuses on regulatory and policy dialogue addressing financial, technical and policy barriers, and on sharing best practices, including strengthening institutional capacity in the field of energy efficiency.

Work Plan of GEEE for:    2018-2019      2016-2017     2014-2015
