Argentina's Ministry of Energy, Chile's Ministry of Energy and the Energy Sustainability Agency will hold the 6th edition of the course for the development of energy diagnostics in SMEs in the framework of their EUROCLIMA+ project.

The Secretariat of Energy of the Ministry of Economy of Argentina, the Ministry of Energy of Chile and the Energy Sustainability Agency of Chile

will hold the sixth edition of the course for the development of energy diagnostics in Argentinean and Chilean small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). 

In the framework of the project "Mitigation of greenhouse gases and adaptation to the impacts of climate change in Latin America by strengthening energy efficiency in strategic sectors of Argentina and Chile", of the EUROCLIMA+ Programme, through whose Energy Efficiency sector these entities were selected. This sector is implemented by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) and the French Development Agency (AFD).

This course corresponds to Output 2 of the project, "Conducting energy diagnostics and training in 200 SMEs".

Eligible SMEs that successfully complete the course will receive a free professional energy diagnosis.

So far, in the previous editions of the course, almost 100 people have been trained. After passing this course, 51 of them received the energy diagnosis for their SMEs.

The VI will start on Monday 14 November and will end on Sunday 4 December 2022. The deadline for registration is Wednesday 9 November (limited places).

We are inviting personnel from small and medium-sized companies who are interested in being trained in energy efficiency and eventually receiving an energy diagnosis of their facilities. The aim is to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, reduce costs and increase the competitiveness of companies.

In this sixth edition, the call is open to all provinces and C.A.B.A. in Argentina, and all regions of Chile.

Description, objective and outputs

The EUROCLIMA+ project "Mitigation of greenhouse gases and adaptation to the impacts of climate change in Latin America by strengthening energy efficiency in strategic sectors of Argentina and Chile", which is being implemented by the Secretariat of Energy of the Ministry of Economy of Argentina, the Ministry of Energy of Chile and the Energy Sustainability Agency of Chile, aims to strengthen policies, norms, standards, tools and best practices in energy efficiency in Argentina and Chile through the transfer of knowledge between the two countries and the development of actions in sectors considered strategic for their high potential for energy efficiency and for their capacity for replication and demonstration in different productive sectors.

Its objective is to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases by strengthening the energy efficiency measures contained in the Nationally Determined Contributions of Argentina and Chile.

The complete proposal includes the execution of 8 products to be implemented in Argentina and Chile, considered strategic due to their high potential for energy efficiency and their capacity for replication and demonstration.

Output 2

Within the framework of this product, a training course will be designed and energy diagnostics will be carried out for the SMEs that pass the course. A workshop and a closing report will be carried out that will concentrate the experience gained and the main results of the activities carried out. The expected outcome is a full energy diagnosis report with relevant information and its analysis for the implementation of energy efficiency measures within the reach of small and medium-sized enterprises.

Output 2 is framed within the line of action that seeks to develop instruments, mechanisms and tools for the promotion and dissemination of energy efficiency. Together with outputs 1 and 7, it seeks to generate demonstration effects in the private sector that can then be replicated.

Its objective is to increase energy efficiency in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Argentina and Chile. In particular, it is expected to benefit these companies through the delivery of an analysis that allows them to assess their energy status and the level of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in which they find themselves and to take actions for energy improvement based on relevant information. The main result of this output is to carry out diagnostics in at least 200 small and medium-sized enterprises (100 in Argentina and 100 in Chile).

EUROCLIMA+ Project

In August 2019, the Secretariat of Energy of the Ministry of Economy of Argentina, the Ministry of Energy of Chile and the Energy Sustainability Agency of Chile were selected, through the project "Mitigation of greenhouse gases and adaptation to the impacts of climate change in Latin America by strengthening energy efficiency in strategic sectors of Argentina and Chile", by the Energy Efficiency sector of the EUROCLIMA+ Programme. This sector is implemented by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) and the French Development Agency (AFD).

About EUROCLIMA+

EUROCLIMA+ is a programme funded by the European Union and co-financed by the German federal government through the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), as well as by the governments of France and Spain. Its objective is to reduce the impact of climate change and its effects in 18 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean by promoting climate change mitigation and adaptation, resilience and investment. The Programme is implemented under the synergistic work of seven agencies: the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), the French Development Agency (AFD), the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), Expertise France (EF), the International and Ibero-America Foundation for Administration and Public Policy (FIIAPP), the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) GmbH, and the UN Environment Programme.

About the Energy Efficiency sector

The objective of this sector is to contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation through the implementation of energy efficiency measures, in line with the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) assumed by countries under the framework of the Paris Agreement. The actions financed under this sector aim to support countries in their efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change in the energy sector. Projects are aimed at identifying and financing initiatives that help strengthen capacities, institutions, public policy regulatory frameworks and monitoring systems that promote energy efficiency.
