The Energy Efficiency Learning Portal for Central Asia (CAEELP) was created under the Energy Efficiency for Clean Development Program (EECDP), and in collaboration with the Central Asian Energy Efficiency Support Program (CAEESP), both funded by USAID. The project aims to assist in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) intensity and emissions by stimulating investment in energy efficiency (EE) technologies and projects. The CAEELP provides a platform for the dissemination of EE best practices from the region, and included an interactive education platform and EE equipment database to help establish a community of practice within the region. This interactive informational resource brings together suppliers and consumers of EE knowledge, equipment, technologies and best practices in the Central Asian region.
The main objective of the project is to ensure the sustainability of the CAEELP portal. The key components to back up the objective are:
content update and liaison with stakeholders in the area of energy efficiency and climate mitigation;
promotion of the portal both through technical means and media activities as well as exploring other funding opportunities to enlarge the scope of portal in the future;
overall coordination and monitoring.
The main project output is to ensure that a user-friendly web resource containing relevant information about energy efficient technologies and equipment is available in Central Asia. The main components of the project are (i) Content update and liaison with stakeholders in the area of energy efficiency and climate mitigation. The main objective of the Component 1 is to ensure that the content of the portal is constantly updated with specific information (EE database, case studies and policy documents); (ii) Promotion of the web portal. The second component aims to promote the web portal through technical means and activities as well as to explore other funding opportunities to enlarge the scope of portal in the future; (iii) Project coordination. The main objective of the third component is to ensure the overall coordination and monitoring of the activities.
