Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

1. Implement until completion the remaining activities according to Annex H of the Terminal Evaluation Report and use the committed and remaining funds before the final financial closure by September 30, 2018.

2

2. Develop and lobby for the passage of an Energy Efficiency and Conservation (EE&C) Law that will institutionalise energy efficiency programmes including energy efficiency in buildings as post-project plan after BSEEP

3

3. Develop and establish an inter-ministerial coordination mechanism or a national steering committee to provide the venue for discussing cross-sectoral issues, finding solutions and executing sustainable programs.

4

4. Strengthen the delivery of building energy efficiency technologies and services, particularly in intensifying the role of the ESCOs, academic/research institutions, industry associations and other stakeholders.

5

5. For future building energy efficiency projects: i) determine means to improve further the appropriate methodology and monitoring and evaluation process for data collection, calculation and verification of the impacts of the building energy efficiency projects; ii) determine means to improve the access and availability of sustainable financing for building energy efficiency projects; iii) establish a program for a continuing knowledge management and dissemination of the experience gained from BSEEP
