Project Description and summary of services

The Government of Mauritius (GoM) has developed and published the Outline of Energy Policy that defines a coherent energy strategy for the development of the energy sector in Mauritius.  The major objectives of the energy policy are security of supply, affordable energy, competitiveness and energy independence in the long term. Key elements in achieving these objectives include the implementation of measures to promote energy efficiency at all levels, including standards for electrical appliances and energy management in buildings 
Consistent with the Energy Policy of the GoM, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in collaboration with the Global Environment Facility (GEF), initiated the UNDP-GEF project titled “Removal of Barriers to Energy Efficiency and Energy Conservation in Buildings.” This project focuses on reducing GHG emissions sustainably through a re-engineering of the building energy efficiency market for existing and new buildings.
The project is intended to recommend measures to overcome barriers to energy efficiency in buildings in the Republic of Mauritius and reinforce the development of a market-based approach with a view to improving residential and non-residential energy efficiency in both existing and future buildings. Consequently, the project activities will ensure that energy is used in a cost effective manner and rationally throughout the islands. The project tackles market barriers in all three areas of energy use in buildings: building fabric, equipment, and consumer behavior.

An important part of this UNDP-GEF project is a cooperative effort with the Ministry of Renewable Energy and Public Utilities to establish energy standards and labeling for domestic appliances in Mauritius.
