About this project


Based on an analysis of the energy and technology status of the most energy intensive industries in the region of Bogota-Cundinamarca, the project aims to promote technology transfer through the development of pilot projects with industry sector companies in the region. This will provide inputs for developing a NAMA for the industry sector in order to reduce the sector's GHG emission, improving their productivity and competitiveness in line with the Colombian Low-Carbon Development Strategy.Thus, the project will support technology transfer in industry sub-sectors in the region through the implementation of the following components: 1) Strengthening the capacity of industry to establish their business-as-usual energy and GHG emissions baseline; 2) Implementation of technology transfer pilot projects in accordance with identified and prioritized mitigation actions in the industry sector; and 3) Knowledge management for the replicability of the impact of the technology transfer pilot projects in the industry sector.


Promoting the adoption of best industry practices and the implementation of low-carbon technologies in companies that form part of the industry sector in Bogotá-Cundinamarca .
