With the aim of exchanging experiences and sharing knowledge about energy efficiency and energy management systems learning networks (RdA), the National Commission for the Efficient Use of Energy (Conuee) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH (German Cooperation for Sustainable Development) presented the video Energy Efficiency and energy management systems Learning Networks.
The video introduces the concept of RdA, what are the implementation phases, what is its main objective and what actors are relevant for their development and implementation. Also, the video shares the experience of the pilot networks in municipalities of Aguascalientes, Coahuila and Morelos, and the benefits achieved through the implementation of this mechanism is mentioned. For example, in Coahuila, the implementation of the energy efficiency network in the pumping of drinking water, and the measures identified foresee an electric power saving that translates into the mitigation of almost 3,000 tons of CO2 eq and the saving of more than twelve million pesos.
In addition, success stories are presented in Germany with the implementation of learning networks supported by the National Climate Initiative (NKI) of the German government, where in some projects up to 15-20% reduction in energy expenditure has been obtained. The information, testimonies, and case studies presented in the video will help disseminate the learning networks mechanism at the municipal level in Mexico, and its potential to promote energy efficiency measures that translate into cost reduction, capacity building and, low carbon municipal management.
The video was presented through the network of States and Municipalities of Conuee in an Online transmission about Municipal Energy Efficiency Learning Networks; as well as in the First Meeting on Energy and Energy Management Systems Learning Networks.
The following GIZ projects participated in the elaboration of the video: Vertically Integrated Climate Policies (VICLIM), Sustainable Energy Program (PES), and Energy Transition Preparation Program in Mexico (TrEM)
