CLASP, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and RIVER Consultores were awarded a grant by the US Department of State (DOS) to implement an energy efficiency project in Chile.
This initiative was designed to facilitate the implementation of new policies such as energy-efficiency standard and labeling programs for distribution transformers (DT), which will promote more energy-efficient technologies in this critical sector.
The project is implemented through three main activities:
- Providing the economic, environmental, financial, and technical rationale for energy efficiency policies and related programs through rigorous empirical analysis of the Chilean DT market;
- Developing appropriate policies based on international best practices that will transform the Chilean market towards more efficient distribution transformers; and
- Engaging with utilities and industry in Chile to generate greater awareness of the benefits of more efficient policies for DTs, and potential deployment of high efficiency distribution transformers.
In support of these activities, this report presents the current energy efficiency programs for distribution transformers around the world.
