Standard & Labeling (S&L) Mauritius (2009)
Consistent with the Energy Policy of the Government of Mauritius, 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.
