This easy-to-use software tool helps decisionmakers assess the costs and benefits of energy efficiency standards and labeling (EESL) programs and identify the most attractive targets for appliance efficiency levels.

Energy efficiency standards and labeling (EESL) programs are among the most important energy efficiency policies for developing countries to reduce electricity costs and consumption while meeting the increasing electricity demand. However, to implement them, decision-makers—including policymakers, funding agencies, and other stakeholders—need to know the potential environmental and financial impacts of EESL programs. This information is essential to prioritizing strategies that maximize benefits for both consumers and governments. PAMS is an easy-to-use software tool that policymakers can use to assess the costs and benefits of EESL programs. [[nid:382241 view_mode=teaser]]
