Leading the Transition to Clean Energy

On May 2013, the IIEC delivered a two-day training on Standards and Labeling (S&L) to policymakers in Kenya as part of the on-going national Standards and Labelling Programme, which is a 5 year initiative designed to remove barriers to market transformation of energy efficient products and services in Kenya.

The program is funded by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) with the support from the Ministry of Industrialization in Kenya.


The training covered a range of relevant topics including the status of S&L in Kenya, S&L policy and international experience and the basics steps for S&L implementation as well as energy performance of electrical appliances focusing on three-phase induction motors, domestic and commercial refrigerators, air conditioners and fluorescent lamps. The training also included a visit to the Samsung Engineering Academy and retailer shops to carry out appliance audit exercises and further understand the different components of each appliance.

The attendees included members from the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS), Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), Ministry of Energy (MoE), Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC), Kenya Anti-Counterfeit Agency (ACA) and the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA).

IIEC is currently preparing a two-day technical training exclusively for S&L implementers for the end of June 2013.
