What is LCEC?

What one needs to know about Lebanon's national energy agency

The Lebanese Center for Energy Conservation (LCEC) is the national energy agency for Lebanon. LCEC is a not-for-profit organization within the Lebanese Ministry of Energy and Water (MEW) with a financially and administratively independent statute. LCEC acts as the technical arm of the Lebanese Government and specifically the Ministry of Energy and Water in all issues related to energy efficiency and renewable energy.

Institutionalized in 2011, LCEC celebrates its tenth anniversary in 2021. Throughout the years, LCEC has succeeded in establishing itself as the national point of reference in sustainable energy matters for both the public and private sectors of Lebanon.

The main role of LCEC is to setup national action plans and strategies to develop the sustainable energy sector in Lebanon. LCEC's role also expands to the implementation of national projects and initiatives undertaken by the Lebanese Ministry of Energy and Water (check them here) as well as by other national and international stakeholders.
