      A.3Description of mitigation action

      This field is limited by 5000 characters.

      To play its part in climate change mitigation, the Government has decided to replace incandescent lights and other lights in households, government and commercial premises by LED lights which are more efficient. This programme is a Government driven demand side management (DSM) initiative to reduce electricity consumption in households, government and commercial buildings as well as street lighting. This initiative will address both climate change issues and energy shortage. Energy is in short supply in the country and in the SADC region.

       

      So far the Ministry of Energy and Power Development has carried out a pilot project at its head office, where incandescent bulbs have been replaced by LED lights. The National Electricity Utility and the Energy Regulator have done likewise at their head quarters. The pilot project realised at least 515 000 kWh of electricity annually mitigating more than 531 tCO2 equivalent of carbon emissions. The planned retrofitting of 250W with 90W LED lights in the City of Harare (capital of Zimbabwe) is expected to reduce electricity consumption by at least 40 GWh per year and reducing GHG emissions by at least 23 443 tCO2. However due to financial constraints the programme may take time to be done at a national scale. The LED lights which have been used are imports because there is no capacity to manufacture in the country. This means that there are a lot of issues that include technology transfer, financing the completion of the programme and awareness creation to get the product accepted by the general public.

       

      The Government is seeking support for preparation of a NAMA on lighting system optimisation to enable the programme to be implemented as a NAMA.

      The cost of preparation stated above is justified by the fact that there is need to hire a consultant to carry out a baseline survey that is required to prepare the NAMA. The amount will be split between paying for consultant services, awareness raising and costs of workshops that will be held.

      This field is limited by 5000 characters.

      This programme is supported by the national development plans as enshrined in the country's INDC submitted to the UNFCCC. The Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation(ZimASSET), the national economic blueprint clearly spell out the country's desire for deficient use of energy for both the domestic and commercial sectors. The National Climate Change Response Strategy and the National Energy policy support energy efficiency to address climate change and energy shortage respectively. T
