Resumen

Grenada joined ranks with the world's nations and signed the Paris Agreement in New York in April 2016. The NDC includes energy efficiency as this has large potential development and mitigation benefits. For this a NAMA Concept is proposed with the objective of achieving energy savings and GHG emission reductions through increased accessibility to energy efficient lighting technologies in the residential sector. Two different scenarios were forecasted for this NAMA, where both scenarios result in decreases in electricity use and GHG emissions, but of varying degree. Scenario 1 results in a GHG reduction of 16,883 tCO2 emissions, while Scenario 2 reaches a reduction of 29,976 tCO2 emissions. Furthermore, an identification of barriers was followed by the proposal of a NAMA action plan, for which the total estimated cost is 120,000 USD, that would serve to overcome the identified barriers, including the economic and financial.
