      Conversion to USD: 8,000,000
      F.1.2Type of required Financial support

      F.1.3Comments on Financial support
      The government through State investment and direct financial cooperation, in terms of soft loans or a combination of financial instruments, depending on the partner institution, the Communication Plan, and tariff incentives. This value represents around 80% of the total investment for the new technology can be introduced. The main components will be the tariff incentives, the plan of communication and information, and the internal facilities.

      The co-financing partner is US$ 2´500,000 (in kind) and consists in the support to staff and facilities, implementation of the policy of development and promotion of energy efficiency in government and public enterprises and the general public.

      Be able to assess the obtaining of funds (concessional loans or grants) on the part of the major funding for climate change (Green Climate Fund, the Global Environment Facility, etc.) when the evaluation criteria and the plan of action of the Namas have been clearly defined and can establish a line of financing that is sufficiently clear and precise. It is planned to an amount of around 8 million dollars for this source of funding.

      As part of the possible international cooperation, are also funds the NAMA Facility that can reach up to $20 million and that could finance various activities such as the implementation of the MRV system.
      F.2.1Amount of Technological support
      F.2.2Comments on Technological support
      Technology will be implemented, will depend on the efficiency standards for electrical appliances that have been formulated at the government level. These standards must be verified and detailed in order to disseminate the information available in this regard.
      F.3.1Amount of capacity building support
      Conversion to USD: 2,500,000
      F.3.2Type of required capacity building support

      F.3.3Comments on Capacity Building support

      To establish of an institutional framework wich conducive to the development of efficiency standards related to the end use of energy,  labeling, and certification. This will help reduce national carbon emissions by adopting more efficient appliances in public and residential sectors.

      In the public sector may include technical indicators by applying tests and measurements to the luminaires and lighting installations, in order to evaluate and improve the efficiency in this sector. In the residential sector will strengthen the legal framework regarding replacement programs and labeling of household appliances.
  • G Estimated emission reductions
    • G.1Amount
      G.3Additional imformation (e.g. if available, information on the methodological approach followed)
      Quantification of the GHG reductions that will be obtained with the implementation of the project is the Gold Standard Methodology "Technologies and Practices to Displace Decentralized Thermal Energy Consumption" (2015).
  • H Other indicators
    • H.1Other indicators of implementation

      GHG emissions on the population growth; 

      Per capita emissions are reduced absolutely in 104 kg of CO2eq per year per inhabitant, until the end of the NAMA the absolute reduction per capita and year increases to 113 kg of CO2eq, which translates to a relative value of 33 %.

      After 15 years of the implementation of the NAMA, it is expected an absolute reduction of 132 kg of CO2eq per inhabitant per year. This means a relative reduction of 40% compared to the BAU scenario.

      GHG emissions vs GDP growth;

      GHG emissions compared to the generation of GDP of US $ 1000 will be reduced by 52% over time.

      From approximately 83 kg of CO2eq per year for every $ 1000 of GDP in 2016 to 38 kg for $ 1000 of GDP in the year 2031
  • I Other relevant information
    • I.1Other relevant information including co-benefits for local sustainable development

      This NAMA is one of the actions that will contribute to the achievement of the country's goal of reducing up to 25% of GHG emissions until 2030. After the program RENOVA is closed,  will continue to encourage the replacement of refrigerators but through orientation to the consumer about the more efficiently product.

      It is also expected that a series of energy efficiency projects contribute to the reduction of emissions of approximately 400 thousand tons of CO2eq by replacing the technology through efficient lighting.

  • J Relevant National Policies strategies, plans and programmes and/or other mitigation action
    • J.1Relevant National Policies

      The development of NAMAs in Ecuador is aligned to the policies of the National Government, which are geared mainly to the change of the energy matrix and the incorporation of projects and energy efficiency programs. These programs are in addition to the need on the part of the Government to find sources of stable and sustainable financing. So far, the Ecuador has developed three NAMAs that are related to the sector of energy efficiency: (i) cooking program; (ii) efficient optimization of Power Generation and Energy Efficiency (OGE&EE); (iii) Future Development Hydroelectric (DFCH).

      Ecuador has a Plan of Action for Sustainable Energy (PAES in spanish) whose objective is to provide a follow-up to the Plan of energy savings through the introduction of new methods of savings and new priorities in terms of investment, achieving the  90% total electricity production throught clean energy to 2017.

      Also Country has a National Development Plan 2013-2017 with emphasis on the "Good Living", which allows to integrate climate change policies and energy efficiency strategies in public management. The objectives of the climate change are concentrated primarily in the change of the energy matrixes and production arrays within a framework of environmental, social and economic sustainability.

      Under article 15 of the Constitution of 2008, "The State shall promote, in the public and private sectors, the use of environmentally clean technologies and alternative energies”. Government of Ecuador actively seeks the adoption of technologies of low energy consumption on the part of the residential, public, commercial and industrial sectors, through the monitoring of lines of action as: (i) policy measures, including laws and decrees for the removal of obsolete technologies in the public sector; (ii) the development of energy standards and minimum performance requirements for specific products sold on the domestic market; (iii) voluntary programs of replacement of electrical appliances such as is the case of efficient public lighting program; and (iv) technical assistance projects and campaigns focused on creating awareness.

      The Government is promoting an ambitious program to design and adopt standards of energy efficiency for a wide range of electrical appliances, in accordance with international standards.
