The Global Energy Efficiency Accelerator Platform is a public-private partnership programme to scale up energy efficiency policy, action and investment, with the aim of doubling the rate of improvement in energy efficiency worldwide by 2030. The platform was established in the context of Sustainable Energy for All, aiming at driving action and commitments by national and sub-national leaders at the country, city, state, region, or sector level.
This platform provides governments an important path for engaging with a variety of significant stakeholders whose knowledge of technologies, markets, financial instruments and implementation approaches can support energy efficiency policies and goals. The accelerators work with stakeholders that are active at both global and local levels. Action under the platform is worldwide, from energy-efficient building programmes and solar-driven LED home lighting, to improved mass transit systems, all demonstrating the effectiveness of public-private partnerships in tackling climate change.
A key deliverable of this initiative will be integrated policy and investment roadmaps prepared with committed public and private partners. These roadmaps will guide project implementation supported by a global network of experts, institutions and businesses.
