Latin America and the Caribbean Energy Management Systems Observatory | IADB

The Latin America and the Caribbean Energy Management Systems Observatory is a forum that aims to contribute to the promotion of EMS, sharing success stories, programs and the methods or processes necessaries to improve energy performance, use and consumption in public and private organizations in the region.

The Energy Management Systems (EMS) are a set of methodologically interrelated elements in an organization to achieve sustained and continuous energy performance improvement and additional benefits related to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and energy costs, so they are an important element for the fulfillment of energy and climate change goals.
