MetadataShow full item record
This case study reviews the existing policies within the Republic of Uganda that supports energy efficiency upon which a platform to launch the Energy Efficient (EE) buildings initiative at the Municipality level. It is from these available policies that standards and modus operandi are drawn on determining the three key questions towards achieving EE buildings at the Municipality level. While policies are set to address national matters at national level, sub national governments are not well equipped to implement the various policies and regulations. If the capacity of sub governments is built especially in relation to sustainable energy, access to renewable energy will be enhanced. This study seeks to address the policy matters effectively. Mainstreaming EE buildings will succeed if there are focused activities and compliance promotion initiatives at both national and Municipality level. While Uganda has several policies relating to energy efficiency and renewable energy in general, there is either total lack or limited regulatory and policy framework at the Municipality level. In order to mainstream Energy Efficient (EE) buildings policies, regulations, standards and enforcement guidelines particularly at Municipality level it is strategic to answer three key questions: What needs to be done? How will it be done? and; Who will do it?
