Cities worldwide consume almost two third of the global energy and produce about 70% of greenhouse gas emissions. To sustain and enhance the role of cities as drivers of economic growth, cities need to undertake energy efficiency measures.

UMC’s work in energy sustainability is broadly on thematic sectors of helping cities lower energy consumption at a city level as well as in their own service delivery systems; support energy efficient transport and energy efficient buildings.

UMC helps local governments identify institutional and financial challenges to initiate energy efficiency measures, strengthen policies and prepare strategic plans to plan ahead.
