Energy efficiency could play an important role to overcome the current energy
crisis. On the other side saving energy means also saving money.
A baseline study conducted by Nepal Energy Efficiency Programme (NEEP) in eight
energy-intensive industrial sectors of Nepal estimated annual saving potentials
of about 160 Gigawatt hours of electricity that is equivalent of the consumption
of 215,000 Nepalese households. About 8 Million Giga-Joule of thermal energy
could be saved which correspond to 224,400 Million Litres of Diesel to be
imported. A total of 139 tons of carbon emissions could be reduced annually.
Expressed in money terms, Nepalese industries could save 6 Billion Nepalese
Rupees yearly by implementing energy efficiency.
The Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI) has taken
the lead to bring energy efficiency on the top agenda of Nepalese decision
makers by establishing the Energy Efficiency Centre (EEC) under its roof. BiCCI
has joined EEC initiative by establishing an Energy Efficiency Cell in Birgunj
and is providing energy auditing services to its member industries.
