Leading the Transition to Clean Energy

On June 2013, IIEC delivered a detailed three-day and a half technical training workshop on Standards and Labeling (S&L) to key implementers in Kenya. This followed from an introductory S&L training held by IIEC in May 2013 for policymakers.

This project was 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 and Enterprise Development.

The training covered mainly the testing procedures, performance standards and certification for:

  • Compact Fluorescent Lamps and Fluorescent Tubes,
  • Domestic and Commercial Refrigerators,
  • Air Conditioners,
  • Three-phase Electric Induction Motors.

It also included a visit to the Kenya Bureau of Standards Light Testing Facility to fully understand the current performance and safety testing procedures undertaken for Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) in Kenya.Overall, there was a total of 43 attendees including staff from the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum, Ministry of Industrialization and Enterprise Development (MOIED), Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC), Kenya Power, National Environment Management Authority (NEMA), Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS), Anti-Counterfeit Agency (ACA), the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT).
