A toolkit to explore the energy-saving potential by country

In a significant move towards enhancing global energy efficiency, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) has introduced a toolkit in collaboration with Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) under the Mission Efficiency initiative.

This toolkit serves a crucial purpose: to provide holistic support for energy efficiency initiatives, moving beyond fragmented approaches tailored to specific sectors. It aims to identify priority sectors on a country-by-country basis and leverage existing tools from partner programs, platforms, and leading global institutions to foster seamless collaboration and solution deployment. By offering recommendations for potential partners based on priority sectors, the toolkit assists countries in selecting suitable solution providers.

In aligning priority sectors with available tools and qualified partners, the toolkit operationalizes Mission Efficiency’s vision of fostering partnerships among organizations, governments, academia, and the private sector. This collaboration is crucial for accelerating progress towards countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and achieving targets outlined in the 2030 Agenda.

The toolkit caters to a diverse audience, including households, industry professionals, policymakers, government officials, and experts. It offers a wide array of resources, including written guides, model regulations, online courses, efficiency calculators, forecasting tools, and databases. Notably, only publicly available tools funded by governments, multilateral organizations, or research institutions are included.

Users can access the toolkit through three main tabs:

  • Country: Select a country to access its energy efficiency score by sector.
  • Matchmaking: Explore Mission Efficiency partners active in the sector of interest.
  • Tools: Navigate through available tools and resources.

UNIDO extends its gratitude to SEforALL and the International Energy Agency (IEA) for their invaluable support in creating this toolkit. Additionally, the development of this toolkit was made possible with support from the UK Government’s Department of Energy Security and Net Zero.

This toolkit represents a significant step towards advancing global energy efficiency efforts, fostering collaboration, and driving progress towards sustainable development goals.
