Providing energy efficiency solutions that cut costs, improve energy systems productivity and enable sustainable development in partner countries
Through the Energy Efficiency for Development Program (EE4D), USAID works in partnership with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) to provide partner countries with access to technical assistance needed to implement interventions necessary to scaling up clean energy rapidly and effectively.
Resources and technical tools
EE4D provides data, reports, access to technical tools and practical guides in support of EE policy and implementation processes.
Training and Outreach
EE4D informs policy makers and the USAID energy network about the benefits of energy efficiency to raise the level of ambition about opportunities and goals.
Building Blocks of Energy Efficiency
include evaluation of market dynamics, regulatory costs and benefits, development of technical standards and stakeholder engagement.
kick starts markets for high-efficiency technologies by creating economies of scale and facilitating reduction of costs to end consumers.
integrates energy efficiency into national power development and integrated resource plans, enabling targets and strategies for low emissions development strategies (LEDS), and implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions.
