CLASP is an international non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the environmental and energy performance of the appliances and related systems we use every day, lessening their impacts on people and the world around us. CLASP develops and shares transformative policy and market solutions in collaboration with global experts and local stakeholders.
CLASP envisions a world in which appliances, equipment and lighting are built for maximum energy efficiency and minimal contribution to global climate change. With the objective to accelerate the implementation of comparable, transparent, and effective S&L policies globally, CLASP's Global Research Program hosts and supports an online resource for monitoring, verification, and enforcement (MV&E), which allows policy makers and S&L practitioners to:
- Find technical studies and other resources for improving the implementation of monitoring, verification, and enforcement policies, frameworks, and activities
- Find compliance legislative frameworks and MV&E activities by country and economic region.
Additionally, CLASP’s Global S&L Database provides a comprehensive overview of current S&L policies around the world. The Economy Finder documents legislative frameworks, and organizations responsible for implementing appliance energy efficiency policies in particular countries and regions.
In order to begin to provide similar resources for compliance regimes, CLASP seeks to contract a qualified Consultant to assist in conducting comprehensive research to identify and document MV&E policy frameworks and practices for up to 15 major economies.
Information on the scope of work, Consultants' responsibilities, reporting and deliverables is provided below, as well as the project timeline and application instructions.
