The purpose of this study is to assess, with limited resources, the potential for improvingŒåäóæenergy efficiency in public buildings by providing preliminary estimates of the size of theŒåäóæpublic sector buildings market, the patterns of energy use in public buildings, and theŒåäóæopportunity for reducing energy use in public buildings. This report estimates the size ofŒåäóæthis market and the potential for carbon savings with conservative assumptions requiringŒåäóæmoderate investment towards efficiency improvement in public sector buildingsäó_í‹íå heredefined as the sum of the public sector commercial and institutional buildings asŒåäóæcharacterized by the Ministry of Statistics and Program Implementation (MOSPI).ŒåäóæInformation from this study will be provided to the World Bank and the BEE to assistŒåäóæthem in designing effective energy efficiency programs for public buildings.
