The Industrial Energy Efficiency (IEE) Project was established in 2010 in response to the growing need to improve the energy efficiency of South Africa. UNIDO, along with the Swiss Secretariat for Economic Affairs, the UK Department of International Development and partnered by the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) and the Department of Energy (DoE) of South Africa, embarked on a program to address the global drive for greater energy efficiency.
The ultimate goal is to demonstrate the positive impact of energy management as a means of reducing carbon-dioxide emissions and to demonstrate the effectiveness and financial impact of in-plant energy management. The project is hosted by the National Cleaner Production Centre of South Africa (NCPC-SA) at the CSIR and will be integrated into the centre after it has completed its 4 year lifespan.
