11 May 2017

Strengthening Low Carbon Energy Island Strategies (LCEI) project conducted Energy Efficiency Awareness Workshops in N. Ken’dhikulhudhoo on 26th and 27th April 2017. The Workshops were conducted for two batches of students from grade 8, 9 and 10 of Ken’dhikulhudhoo School, N. Ken’dhikulhudhoo. Total 53 students participated in the workshops.
The workshops were inaugurated by the Acting School in Charge Ms.Siman Hassan Didi.
Officials from LCEI Project Management Unit, Energy Department and Maldives Energy Authority facilitated the workshops.
In the workshop, information was given on climate change, energy efficiency, ways to be more energy efficient, how to conserve energy and importance of energy efficiency in building design to reduce GHG emissions. Exercises were conducted to provide knowledge on electrical Nameplate reading, Electrical Meter reading and electric bill reading.
The project “Strengthening Low Carbon Energy Island Strategies” project is implemented by Ministry of Environment and Energy (MEE) assisted by United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and financed by Government of Maldives and Global Environment Facility (GEF). The project aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through energy efficiency in the building sector, increasing energy efficiency in the building sector by developing appropriate policies, guidelines and standards.
