This guide is designed to be read as a “Motors” annex to the CLASP Monitoring, Verification and Enforcement (MVE) Guide (CLASP, 2010), with Figure 1 (overleaf) showing the structured approach to creating a CC&E programme taken from this MVE guide.
This program evaluation aimed to analyze the impacts on Mexican consumers and the national economy from energy efficiency standards on residential refrigerators and window air conditioners that were aligned, or “harmonized” with U.S. standards in the early 2000s.
This report focuses on financial incentive programs that aim to mitigate the energy consumption attributable to the growing stock of ACs. This report also describes how incentive programs can be designed to address other pressing concerns related to growing AC use, such as challenges to power supply reliability resulting from increased peak demand and the global warming potential (GWP) of AC refrigerants.
This report attempts to shed light on the global landscape and enable meaningful comparisons at a macro-level which are helpful and necessary to policymakers in the development of sound and optimized energy efficiency policies.
Numerous countries use public funds to subsidize residential electricity for a variety of socioeconomic objectives. These subsidies lower the value of energy efficiency to the consumer while raising it for the government.
