Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

R1  - The Government of Cabo Verde with assistance of UNDP should ensure human and financial resources necessary for implementation of CEEE and SNEREE.

2

R2 - DNICE/DSE should step up the efforts for establishment of a certification programme for compliance check with CEEE and for training of certified experts

3

R3 - DNICE/DSE and INGT should provide support to municipalities for exercising their authority for enforcement of the new building code.

4

R4 - Owners of the demonstration buildings should ensure rigorous measuring of energy savings through application of the proposed MRV protocols for annual monitoring as required by CEEE.

5

R5 - DNICE/DSE should commission a study on lessons learned from implementation of the project and disseminate the study to decision makers and key stakeholders in building construction and maintenance.

6

R6 - DNICE/DSE should ensure adoption and implementation of EMS (Energy efficiency measures) for public and private sector buildings.

7

R7 - The Government should accelerate the work on finalization of MEPS for the selected 6 categories of appliances and get them officially promulgated for implementation.

8

R8 - The Government should establish and implement effective, properly mandated and transparent enforcement procedure for compliance with the promulgated appliances’ standards and labels. The enforcement procedure should be largely disclosed to all market actors and thoroughly followed by national market surveillance authorities (MSAs).

9

R9 - DNICE/DSE should consider assistance of consumer associations for complementary monitoring of the energy efficiency markets for effective surveillance and increased compliance of marketed appliances with the standards and labels at the points of sale.

10

R10 - The Government should continue public awareness campaign for energy efficient appliances using the channels of delivery established under the project. In particular, it should upload all relevant documents and knowledge products resulting from the project to the official project/DSE website and ensure maintenance of the website after the project closure.

11

R11 - The Government should consider preparation of MEPS for high consuming appliance categories, such as electro motors, chillers and industrial & commercial freezers

12

R12 - For all projects, UNDP CO should ensure that project indicators and their target values are correctly formulated to measure delivery at the project output and outcome levels and that progress towards achievement of results is regularly assessed at the level of project outputs.

13

R13 - For GEF-funded projects, UNDP CO should track actual levels of co-financing during implementation of GEF projects and report the actually realized levels of co-financing in annual PIRs

1. Recommendation:

R1  - The Government of Cabo Verde with assistance of UNDP should ensure human and financial resources necessary for implementation of CEEE and SNEREE.
