Making the Most of $53 Million in Philanthropic Funding for Energy Efficiency
Time Description Room / Location Level / Floor
13:15
Organizers: United States of America Description: In support of an ambitious amendment to the Montreal Protocol to phase down HFCs, a group of philanthropists announced on September 22 their intent to provide $53 million in 2017 to Article 5 countries to support improvements in energy efficiency. This funding represents the largest-ever non-governmental grant made in this sector for energy efficiency, and it reflects a strong recognition from the philanthropists of the dual benefits associated with transitioning to low-GWP HFC alternatives while also improving energy efficiency. This side event is focused on a discussion about how to best utilize this funding to improve energy efficiency.
