Cool Up participated in the Beirut Energy Week (BEW) held in Beirut in September 2023. The conference aimed to be a beacon for promoting regional coordination among the different national committees in preparation for the 26th World Energy Congress to be held in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
From the 20th to the 22nd of September, Cool Up’s country partner in Lebanon, The Lebanese Center for Energy Conservation (LCEC), hosted the Beirut Energy Week, a hub for energy leaders from Lebanon, the region and the world to come together and exchange their views on how to enhance sustainability.
Cool Up’s contribution
The Cool Up programme used this opportunity to gather national and regional stakeholders to present the latest developments of the programme in a dedicated Cool Up session and to discuss the important topic of sustainable cooling further in a Thematic Working Group meeting.
The Cool Up session, initiated by H.E. Dr. Walid Fayad, Minister of Energy and Water, Lebanon, and H.E. Dr. Nasser Yassine, Minister of Environment, Lebanon, explored the latest findings on the cooling sector in Lebanon, derived from studies conducted within the Cool Up programme.
During the Thematic Working Group meeting, Lebanese Stakeholders gathered to cover updates on the Cool Up programme. The Meeting ended with a fruitful discussion addressing vital topics including financing, demonstration projects and capacity building.
