2.3.3 E-7 Network For Expertise
The E-7 is a non-profit international group of eight of the
largest electric utilities in the world, including EDF of France, RWE of
Germany, ENRI of Italy, Tokyo Electric and Kansai Electric of Japan, Ontario
Hydro and Hydro Quebec of Canada and Southern California Edison of the United
States. E-7 is providing assistance for GHG mitigation efforts under its,
E-7 Network of Expertise for Global Environment and the E-7 working
group on Greenhouse Gases and Joint Implementation.
The E-7 is focusing its AIJ programme on providing in-kind
services to the energy sector in developing countries. However, E-7 is not
committed to directly investing in formal mitigation projects. It is currently
participating in three JI/AIJ type projects in Indonesia, Jordan and Zimbabwe.
In Indonesia, the E-7 has contributed in-kind services, and plans to participate
in local infrastructure development for a renewable energy system. In Jordan, it
is assisting the Jordan Electricity Authority to increase efficiency of older
thermal stations. E-7 is helping in micro hydro projects in
