During the High-level Forum UNEP DTU Partnership’s Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency participated in a string of side events and presented a Street Lighting toolbox comprising two tools, which aim to accelerate the energy efficiency at a local level. The tool box is developed with United Nations Environmental Programme initiative United for Efficiency. Try the tool here
Available lighting solutions can help developing countries to reduce annual electricity demand for lighting by 40 to 60% with payback periods lower than 3 years. By incorporating efficiency into existing and planned infrastructure systems, costs can be controlled, service delivery can be improved and access expanded without necessarily adding to the cost of the service.
The High-level dialogue concluded with a set of recommendations and reports to which Head of Strategy at UDP Gabriela Prata Dias contributed to the Theme report on Energy Transition https://www.un.org/en/hlde-2021/page/theme-reports
