Workshop on Energy Diagnoses: “A Tool for Mobilizing Investments in Energy Efficiency”
As part of PEER Project’s Policy Component, BUN-CA continues supporting Central American governments in developing more favorable policies on energy efficiency, for instance:
The Binational Project, implemented through HIVOS Foundation financial support, concluded its activities and allowed BUN-CA, the Project executor, to strengthen Energy Efficiency (EE) market growth in Nicaragua and Costa Rica among small- and medium-sized businesses with the purpose of “Reducing power consumption in hotels to turn them into the most sustainable and competitive sector".
The main results achieved were:
This coming November 20, 2008, BUN-CA will present a paper at the IV Renewable Energy Forum, under the motto “Renewable Energies: A Sustainable Development Alternative,” accepting an invitation from the Renewable Energy Promotion Group (GIER) of the Nicaraguan Department of León, a group encouraging the use of alternative energies.
BUN-CA will participate with an EE stand and exposition in the Community Rural Development Fair, organized by the Small Donation Program of Nicaragua, this coming November 28, 2008, in Managua.
The Salvadoran Association of Chemical Engineers (ASINQUI) designated Ana Ma. González Trabanino, BUN-CA Country Representative, as "PROFESSIONAL OF THE YEAR" granting her the 2008 ASINQUI Award.
With an eye to continue supporting Salvadoran industry, the Salvadoran Industrialist Association has organized the 4ª Industrial Fair, called “50 Years Supporting Industry”, where BUN-CA will be presenting a paper on Energy Efficiency.The Fair will be held on November 21-22, 2008, at the Central American Pavillion, International Fair and Convention Center.
