Energy Efficiency Strategy 2075

Government of Nepal has formulated energy efficiency strategy recently. It has envisioned assisting in energy security by increasing the energy access through efficient use of available energy. It has expected to promote energy efficiency by effectively implementing energy efficiency programs through establishing policy, legal and institutional frameworks. 18 | P a g e The strategy has taken long term goal to double the average improvement rate of energy efficiency in Nepal from 0.84% per year, which existed during the period of 2000 -2015 AD to 1.68% per year in 2030 AD. Following objectives and strategies are delineated to achieve the vision and mission of the strategy.
