SUMMARY: This publication was prepared by the IEA, with the support of more than 50 energy efficiency experts from Latin America and the Caribbean, together with the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (UN ECLAC), and the Ministry of Energy and Mines of Peru. The 20 detailed recommendations span five sectors and cover policies ranging from measures to implement mandatory minimum energy performance standards for buildings and appliances, to improve transport system planning and efficiency and promote energy management systems for industry. They are tailored to regional barriers and opportunities. The IEA has also worked with regional partners to develop energy efficiency policy recommendations for Southeast Asia and the Arab-Southern and Eastern Mediterranean (SEMED) regions.
