CEDRO III Country Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Demonstration Project for the Recovery of Lebanon
The project aims at supporting the greening of Lebanon’s recovery, reconstruction and reform activities through the activation of end-use energy efficiency and renewable energy applications. To achieve this, the project will work on three levels: First, through the implementation of end-use energy efficiency and renewable energy demonstration projects in selected public sector buildings and facilities across Lebanon; Second, through the set up of an enabling environment for the conversion of other public sector buildings and facilities into energy efficient modalities, and third, through the development of a national sustainable energy strategy and action plan. The project is financed by the Lebanon Recovery Fund through a donation from Spain, and is in line with Lebanon’s ongoing efforts to improve national patterns of energy consumption and cost.
Achievements & Expected Results
- Enable activation of energy efficiency and renewable energy applications in Lebanon.
- Assist the Government of Lebanon in implementing energy efficiency and renewable energy projects to support the recovery, reconstruction and reform programme and to reduce national energy consumption and costs.
- Decrease greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by introducing and demonstrating new energy and cost efficient approaches and by supporting the overall shift towards energy efficiency and renewable energy applications.
