Polish Energy Efficiency Motors Programme

Project Summary

The Polish Energy Efficient Motors Programme (PEMP) project aims to overcome barriers to increased market penetration of energy efficient motors and related efficiency improvements in electric motor systems.The project has four main activities to be supported under the GEF. The first major activity focuses on building capacity and raising awareness by providing information and services related to energy efficient electric motor systems. The second major activity involves demonstration projects to establish and showcase the technical and economic benefits of energy efficient motor systems, and increase awareness. The third major activity has the objective of stimulating market transformation and competition through a financial incentive mechanism, supported by coordinated and targeted awareness raising activities. The fourth, a policy component, comprises both institutional and information instruments, and has been identified as a separate component because it addresses a different target group than the other components and requires a different approach on a national government level.
