Pakistan Approve Development of a National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Policy

THE Board of Director (BoD) of Pakistan’s National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (NEECA) have approved the plan for the development of a National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Policy.

The BoD also approved the launch of a National Energy Conservation Awards Scheme and the adoption of standard industrial classification codes by gas and electricity utility companies which will help in identification of Designated Consumers.

The BoD decided that the construction of new public buildings should include energy efficiency improvements and this needs to be reflected in the compliance mechanism for construction of buildings through the Building Energy conservation codes or the Green Building Code.

The BoD also appreciated the successful initiative of Pakistan Energy Labelling Scheme for Fans  and recommended a similar initiative to be taken up on a mandatory basis for refrigerators, Air Conditions and LED Lighting to promote  energy efficient products.

While chairing first board meeting of Neeca, Federal Minister for Energy, Ali Zafar stressed the importance of energy efficiency and conservation and directed the participants to put in a concerted effort to make the department effective in its aims.
