The Egyptian-German Joint Committee of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (JCEE) aims at amplifying the cooperation between Egypt and Germany in the areas of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, with the objective to promote an environmental-friendly and sustainable economic development by securing energy supplies while improving living conditions and protecting the environment. This cooperation enables Egyptian partner institutions to develop and implement long-term strategies for renewable energy and energy efficiency.
In aiding this process the Wuppertal Institut conducted technical assistance in the framework of the project CoBASE (Competition-based approaches to save energy in Egyptian households) by supporting the development of a selection matrix in order to assist the selection of urban districts in several cities in Egypt. The energy efficiency awareness rising measures shall be implemented in the selected quarters. In a second step, concrete strategies for the application of energy efficiency measures in Egyptian households have been elaborated. The elaborated recommendations contained competition-based ideas to strengthen the awareness of energy efficiency in households.
