Supply-Side Efficiency and Energy Conservation and Planning

Project Summary

This project has two components: First: supply-side intervention where the Government rehabilitates an old power plant so that GEF can implement efficiency control measures and maintenance management measures that would sustain a higher degree of thermal efficiency and high levels of availability. The second component has two parts: (a) industrial demand side management where energy service companies conduct energy audits and make recommendations, e.g. retrofitting; and (b) integrated resource planning where the country would do exercises in integrated resource planning that would recommend optimum mixes of renewables, i.e., conventional sources and energy conservation and demand-side management.
