Promoting of Appliance Energy Efficiency and Transformation of the Refrigerating Appliances Market in Ghana

October 13, 2009 - 12:00pm

As part of the national initiatives to promote energy savings in Ghana, a program is being implemented with the aim to use standards and labels as the main tool for transforming the refrigerators and refrigerator-freezers market in Ghana towards more energy efficient appliances. The program is intended to generate large electricity savings, as well as reduce the associated greenhouse gas emissions. The key initial outcome of the program is the development of the draft Legislative Instrument "Energy Efficiency Standards and Labeling (Refrigerator, Refrigerator-Freezer and Freezer) Regulations, LI 1947" which has been submitted to the Government of Ghana to be passed into law. A follow-up project is planned with the primary objective to improve the energy efficiency of refrigeration appliances marketed and used in Ghana through the introduction of a combination of regulatory tools such as Minimum Energy Performance Standards and Information Labels (S&L), and innovative economic tools. The lecture highlights the planned activities and the key expected outcomes of the project. For more information about this seminar, please contact: Robert VanBuskirk(510) 495-2310
