      A.3Description of mitigation action

      The project aims at contributing to a sustainable transformation of industrial energy usage practices in South Africa by putting the system of Energy Management Standards (EMS) in place and ensuring that industries in agro-processing, chemical and liquid fuels, mechanical engineering, automotive and mining industry use it. In order to achieve this goal, it is planned to stimulate the demand of Energy Efficient services through formulation and implementation of an enabling policy framework including a supportive financial mechanism for EE, creation of institutional capacity to implement the EMS, awareness raising, energy audits, and demonstration projects. It is also planned to support the supply of Energy Efficient services by building the institutional capacities to accredit, certify EMS compliance, and by training local trainers and consultants in EMS implementation and energy system optimization, as well as in energy  management in the targeted sub-sectors.
