CLASP serves at the epicenter of collaborative, ambitious efforts to mitigate climate change through appliance efficiency and in the global movement for clean energy access.
CLASP is on the pulse of ground-breaking developments in appliance energy efficiency, quality, and innovation, with programs and projects all over the world. We feed this back into our research, bring it to the fora where we serve, and disseminate cutting-edge and collective knowledge back through our circles. As part of these efforts, CLASP designs and contributes to analysis and forges productive partnerships that advance our mission and the goals of our partners, amplifying efforts and impact.
Collaboration and partnership are major tenets of CLASP culture. Collaboration not only serves stakeholders when resources are lean – it leads markets and keeps policy ambition high.
CLASP holds many roles in international fora focused on appliance energy efficiency, for example the Super-efficient Equipment & Appliance Deployment Initiative, United for Efficiency, and the Efficiency for Access coalition. CLASP also assists regional groups like the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and the Economic Community of West African States.
Fora such as these – as well as consortiums of testing labs, off-grid technology manufacturers, and others – require knowledgeable third-party facilitation and a neutral hand to guide strategic resource investments.
