Regional Workshop on Energy Efficient Designs for Office and Public Buildings in Tropical Climates

The OAS, through its two initiatives the CSEP and the Energy Efficiency Working Group of the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas (ECPA) and Trama TecnoAmbiental (TTA) co-hosted a Regional Workshop on Energy Efficiency Designs for Office Buildings in Tropical Climates.

The Objectives of the workshop were to:

  1. Strengthen the local capacity of the National Standards Bodies concerning the requirements on energy efficiency standards needed to establish the regional energy efficiency standards in buildings.
  2. Provide the support and guidance regarding the opportunities and barriers with respect to the use and deployment of energy efficiency measures and renewable energy conversion technologies in office and public buildings in the Caribbean Region.
  3. Discuss program implementation and share lessons learned among delegates and technical experts, in order to establish institutional links and coordination mechanisms with other ECPA energy efficiency activities.
