Industrial Energy Efficiency (IEE) is a key area for SANEDI and the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE).
Through a project funded by Global Environment Facility (GEF) – United National Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), SANEDI and the DMRE are driving Energy Efficiency improvements within South Africa through mainstreaming the introduction of Energy Management Systems (EnMS) and Energy Systems Optimisation (ESO).
In addition, the project aims to enhance data collection from two industrial sectors, namely; the Pulp & Paper and Automotive industries.
SANEDI 12L and 12i Tax incentive programme will also be leveraged upon in support of this project.
The Residential Energy Consumption project is focused around the collection of residential energy consumption data. This data is based upon the types of electrical appliances and their end-use by individuals within the different Living Standard Measure (LSM) across South Africa. The appliance end-use data utilised within the Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning (LEAP) model for analysis, enabling policy makers with a better understanding and visibility of residential energy side. Furthermore, this project supports aspects of the review of the National Energy Efficiency Strategy (NEES) targets, together with the National Standards & Labelling Programme (S&L) impact assessment.
