Why join CLASP’s Policy & Analysis team
CLASP’s Policy & Analysis program has grown significantly over the past two years. We work in partnership with policymakers and other key stakeholders in over 100 countries—from Brazil to Indonesia, and India to Kenya, with support from a diverse group of donors.
Our team provides world-class technical and policy advisory services directly to governments to develop and implement the most ambitious and cost-effective policy solutions in countries and regions all over the world. We work hand-in-hand with policymakers, as well as industry and civil society to accelerate the development of energy efficient product markets through minimum energy performance standards, informative product labeling, and identification and promotion of the most efficient appliances, both on and off the grid. Energy efficiency policies and programs, such as the European Union’s Ecodesign and Energy Labels, and India’s UJALA program, drive markets towards more energy-efficient and higher quality appliances.
