Energy Management and Efficiency Programme in Jamaica
This Energy Management and Efficiency Programme (EMEP) promotes energy efficiency and conservation to free public funds through lower government bills and reduced oil imports, helping the government of Jamaica to further reduce its debt and create the fiscal space for productive spending whilst also contributing to greenhouse gas emissions’ reduction.
The specific objectives of this programme are:
- reduced electricity consumption within government facilities;
- decreased fuel consumption through improved traffic control management;
- increased institutional capacity to promote and supervise electricity planning in Jamaica.
Fuel imports will be reduced by 618,608 barrels of oil.
- 30 health, education and public agency government facilities will be equipped with energy-efficiency systems, benefitting 12,000 students in schools, more than 3,500 patients in hospitals and workers from 255 public agencies.
