The objective is to achieve significant improvements in energy efficiency, and an increase in the use of renewable energy in the buildings sector in greater Beirut, leading to a decrease of energy consumption and a reduction of GHG emissions. These improvements re to be achieved mainly through the use of solar PV for residential and commercial buildings, solar water heating (SWH) installations and other energy efficiency measures.
