Pakistan has the potential to save up to 10-15 percent of primary energy supply through energy efficiency and conservation measures,
In order to achieve this goal, the National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (NEECA) has developed NEECA Strategic Plan 2020-23 implementation of which is underway in three phases.
The first phase FY 2019-20 was the institutionalization of the energy efficiency and conservation at the national and provincial levels.
The second phase was the operationalization of policy and actions which was implemented during FY 2020-21.
Third phase is the implementation of the action plans which is to be implemented during financial year 2022-23.with the aim of achieving the 3 MTOE energy savings in five strategic sectors including industrial sector,public sector, transport sector, power sector and agriculture sector.
According to the information available, NEECA has developed draft of National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Policy with the consultation of all stakeholders involved which will serve as the guiding principle and provide roadmap for energy efficiency and conservation measures. The draft policy has since been submitted for consideration and approval by the federal cabinet after which it will be enforced at the appropriate level accordingly.
Furthermore, NEECA is also working on the projects of Building Code, Electrical Vehicles and appliances efficiency.
NEECA has already conducted several studies including Pakistan renewable hydrogen energy pre-feasibility study, E-mobility study on Electric Vehicle Charging Stations and Industrial Decarbonization study for Pakistan .
The Authority has also conducted energy audits of 37 sugar industries and 10 captive power plants during the just concluded financial year and launched Minimum Energy Performance Standards of Appliances i.e. LEDs and Motors.
