Through energy audits for government agencies is to support efforts to make gov-ernance transparent and efficient progress in adapting to and mitigating the causes of climate change and improve the quality of government spending. The consump-tion of electricity by public entities is on the order of 825, 874, 269 kWh/year , which is roughly equivalent to 6.7 % of national demand 12,478,309 MWh / year and this more than 70 % owned by the entities managing the water resources.
To date, the National Energy Commission of the Dominican Republic has boosted the performance of at least 14 energy audits, which highlight a potential savings of 40,886,327 kWh / year within the lines of lighting, air conditioning systems, technology information and electric equipment. Measures that although they have the characteristics of being cost - efficient, faces the serious challenge of implementing measures that require investment.
Through the NAMA proposal seeks to extend the scheme for carrying out Energy Audits (doubling the capacity of developing and addressing the institutions with the highest consumption and wide replicability) and procure / manage climate financing through the benefits associated with reducing emission measures can be implemented audit results, all subject to a scheme of Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) to ensure the effectiveness of the implementation of the same.
Implementation time of NAMA is 3 years, with approximate expected emission reductions of at least 58,085.33 ton/year (during the agreed period of accreditation and with reference to a defined baseline) and reductions in energy consumption of at least 86,943,802 kWh annually (cumulative from year to year for the period of implementation of the NAMA , relative to a defined stage of consumption ).
The amount of estimations reduction will increase when the baseline has been set, the amount of emissions reduction has been estimated in a conservative approach because of the uncertainties.
