Scope of sessions



FIRST DAY

Session 1:  Energy Efficiency Sustainability

Mechanisms to provide sustainability to the efforts made by the Latin America and the Caribbean, on Energy Efficiency. National institutions' support is highlighted as an essencial factor to give continuity to the actions and consideration of the results obtained by energy efficiency programs.



Session 2:  Funding Opportunities for efficient projects

Presentation and analysis of financing mechanisms kept with multilateral institutions and international cooperation as input for the implementation of energy efficiency programs, namely, the commitments with the United Nations Program Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL).



Session 3:  Efficient appliances and equipment:  UNEP Project 

The project raises the need for improving energy efficiency as the fastest and cost effective mechanism to mitigate climate change.   Appliances and equipment, such as lighting, air conditioning, refrigeration, electric engines, transformers and information technology, are key to reduce the overall energy demand.  Efficient products are now available and offer better services at lower cost over its lifetime.



Session 4:  Sustainable Cities: efficient building 

Buildings designed and constructed with clear objectives to achieve efficient use of energy are the perfect complement to efficient equipment in order to reduce the energy needs of the country.  Building regulations, labeling and certifications that have been proposed in the region and outside of it are the issues to be discussed during this seminar.

 

SECOND DAY

Session 5:  Energy efficiency in the Hydrocarbons Subsector: efficient transportation 

The opportunities for improving energy efficiency exist within the sector and among them are all processes related to the extraction and refining of hydrocarbons; sharing the experiences and developed programs are included in this session.

Transportation as the largest energy applicant and mostly related with the need for derivatives. It presents a major challenge in the region that should be discussed in depth to recommend ways to reduce energy requirements.



Session 6:  Energy efficiency in Public Water system

In some cities in Latin America and the Caribbean drinking water systems rely on pumps to supply its users and they have a significant potential for energy savings.



Session 7:  Energy Management Systems 

The energy management, particularly with the introduction of the ISO 50001 standard is an important contribution to organize efforts within the private and public organizations, so it is necessary to analyze the steps for its implementation and monitoring. As well as, the results of the experiences that already exist in the region.
