National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (2018/19-2021/22)
A first NEEAP 2012-2015 also outlined energy efficiency targets and measures to be implemented by the Ministry of Electricity and Energy in co-operation with the following Ministries: Industry and Foreign Trade; Housing; Local Development; and Tourism. Establishes a target of achieving a cumulative energy savings of 5% between 2012 and 2015 (compared to the average of the previous five years of consumption). It also outlined measures to achieve this target that span the residential sector, the public sector, and the tourism sector. Residential sector efforts include: a target to sell 12m Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) by 2015 and energy efficiency standards and labels for household appliances. Public sector measures include: replacing 1m sodium, mercury vapour, and incandescent lamps in street lights and public buildings with high efficiency bulbs by 2015 and conducting a study to investigate reducing electricity consumption in public buildings. Following from this latter study, an energy efficiency code has been established for government buildings. Tourism sector measures include: developing a financing mechanism to encourage the use of solar water heaters in hotels.
The plan did not address the heavy subsidy on electricity, which is recognized as a significant cause of electricity overconsumption.
