Regulatory Framework to Promote Energy Efficiency in the Countries of Euasian Economic Union

This regional project is financed by Trust Fund for Development of Russian Federation and UNDP and executed by UNDP Country Offices in the partner countries.

The overarching goal of the regional project is to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases by promoting energy efficiency in the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union, namely: Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Belarus, via strengthening the national systems for appliances EE standards. Download the Project Document in English, and a Project factsheet in English and in Russian.

The project focuses largely on capacity building and assisting governments, standardization institutions, manufacturing, distributing, retail, consumer and environmental stakeholders throughout the EEU region to implement the most cost-effective energy efficiency measure available. The project considers the comparative advantage of each participating country, priority activities will be carried out to help foster each country's preferred process for programme. The project builds on a number of past and current UNDP activities in the partner countries in the area of EE. The project foresees significant cooperation with the Russian Federation, both through technical and advisory support and in terms of technology transfer. There are two partner projects in Armenia, on lighting and on buildings, one in Belarus and one in Kazakhstan

The project also facilitates harmonization of test procedures, standards and labels among EEU countries, when appropriate. The project is expected to cost-effectively deliver an average reduction of 78 billion kWh energy consumption in the residential and commercial energy use in partner countries, resulting in average of 43 million ton of СО2 equivalent GHG emissions reduction in total at the time of peak impact by the year 2030 compared to a baseline scenario. Introduction of energy efficiency standards will contribute to the common market development, attraction of investment and achieve­ment of the ultimate goal – reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. In particular, the project will contribute to amendment and localization of the Technical Regulation of the Euasian Economic Union "On Energy Efficiency Requirements of Energy Consuming Devices" as well as to introduction of Energy Labeling system so that it supports promotion of energy efficiency in all partner countries.
