MENA – Delivery Mechanisms and Institutions to Realize Energy Efficiency Potential

RCREEE was commissioned by the World Bank Group to undertake a market screening/gap analysis for 17 countries in the MENA region on the potential of energy efficiency. The analysis identified barriers and indicators of scaling-up energy efficiency in each country. These include institutional, policy, regulatory, awareness and communication, pricing and financing barriers. In addition, the analysis estimated energy demand projections for the years 2020 and 2025, and sectors with the greatest energy efficiency potential. The analysis was embedded in RCREEE’s flagship publication, Arab Future Energy Index (AFEX) Energy Efficiency, 2015 edition.

Outputs:

  • Up to date energy balances compiled from different sources for 17 countries.
  • Socio-economic data compiled for 17 countries (for 12 years), including Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries.
  • More comprehensive Arab Future Energy Index (AFEX) Energy Efficiency, 2015 edition.

Impacts:

  • The barriers and indicators of scaling-up energy efficiency in each country were identified. These include institutional, policy, regulatory, awareness and communication, pricing and financing barriers.
  • The energy demand projections for the years 2020 and 2025 were estimated, in addition to the sectors with the greatest energy efficiency potential.
