Energy-saving measures are a key approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and often offer simultaneous cost-savings. The CTCN collaborates with industries, organisations and research institutions all over the world to bring energy efficiency technology solutions for mitigating climate change. Together with network members we bring technical assistance to countries such as Uganda, Jordan and the Seychelles for formulation of national electricity grid codes, rehabilitation of district heating systems and other technology solutions on national, industry and community level. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.

Enhancing Vanuatu's market for energy efficient appliancesType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:Approach:
Vanuatu has set ambitious targets of reaching 100% renewable energy for electricity production by 2030, requiring 15% energy savings through energy efficiency measures. However, progress towards achieving such measures requires effective policies, relevant legislation, information-based planning, and private sector participation, amongst others, to facilitate activities towards meeting the national energy targets.
Development of energy audit and reporting guidelines for calculation of the emission factors for fossil fuel power plantsType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:
In 2014, the energy sector contributed 53.4% of total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Viet Nam. The energy sector in general and power generation in particular plays an important role for achieving the target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions under the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).
Development of policy guidelines on building codes for enhancing energy efficiency and identification of viable technologies for public buildings in the Kyrgyz RepublicType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:
Among the total energy consumption of the Kyrgyz Republic, the building sector comprises more than seventy percent. The analysis on creating an inventory for the public buildings was conducted in May 2018 to identify its energy saving potential with energy efficient measures and garner global investment opportunities in the sector. The study reported 9,780 public buildings consume 850 GWh/year, which is 10% of total energy consumption with annually increasing rates.
The Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) and Technology Action Plans (TAPs) for the Kyrgyz RepublicType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:
The Kyrgyz Republic is a land locked and lower-middle-income country of 6,3 million population endowed with natural resources including minerals, glaciers, arable land, forestry and pastures. The country is the third most vulnerable to climate change impacts in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, due to its dependency on and sensitivity of agricultural systems.

Leapfrogging Botswana’s market to energy-efficient refrigerators and distribution transformersType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:CompletedCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:
Botswana's energy capacity is thermal, mainly coal-fired, with some small diesel generators in rural areas. The bulk of domestic electricity production is generated by the Morupule coal-fired station; 20% is thermal while only 0,1% was from solar energy in 2016. Botswana has no hydro-electric power resources.
Leapfrogging Malawi’s market to energy-efficient refrigerators and distribution transformersType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:CompletedCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:
Malawi is one of the first countries in Southern Africa to successfully unbundle the generation, transmission and distribution of its electricity sector.
Malawi already participated in the workshop, organized by the Climate Technology Centre and Network, on leapfrogging to energy efficient lighting, appliances and equipment. The need was identified to look at the potential for increasing the energy efficiency of products by providing a technical market assessment of current conditions and policies.
