Powering progress with energy efficiency (SEforAll)
Securing reliable energy access, lowering energy bills, and curbing carbon emissions are at the heart of the agenda in most of the countries in the world. Recognizing energy efficiency as the most cost-effective resource to achieve climate, energy and development goals can help attract new investors, create new markets, jobs and improve living conditions while keeping climate targets within reach.
Improving energy efficiency is a necessary first step on the energy transition and sustainable development program in Africa and Asia where the energy landscape is rapidly evolving, presenting both challenges and opportunities. Immediate action from governments and the international community is required to harness the potential of energy efficiency across sectors and promote sustainable lifestyles.
Without massive and immediate energy efficiency actions, new buildings risk being locked into high energy bills, stranded assets will increase and the growth in electricity demand will pose difficulties for renewable energies to replace fossil fuels. Improved energy efficiency will promote a more comfortable, healthier, and safer living and work environment, green employment, competitive industries, and future-proof energy systems.
This session aims to promote collaboration and the knowledge exchange. It will highlight ongoing initiatives from Mission Efficiency partners, including the Mission Efficiency Marketplace for energy efficiency projects. During the discussion, key stakeholders from India, Kenya, and Ghana will come together to share lessons learned and ambitions to accelerate progress. The discussion brings together key stakeholders from India, Kenya and Ghana that will share valuable insights to develop cost-effective energy efficiency programs, long-term strategies and plans to remove market barriers to invest in energy efficiency, based in the Mission Efficiency pillars Elevate. Support. Invest.
