Nepal Energy Efficiency Programme

Significant international experiences demonstrate that the efficient consumption of energy not only results in tangible savings to end-users but also helps to ensure a stable energy supply while reducing environmental impacts. Recognizing this fact the government of Nepal and the Federal Republic of Germany jointly conceptualized the Nepal Energy Efficiency Programme (NEEP) to promoteand realize energy efficiency in the country. NEEP is a joint Nepali- German programme implemented by the Ministry of Energy with technical assistance by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), acting on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Implemented since 2010 within the framework of bilateral development cooperation, the first phase of the project has been completed in June 2014. In its second phase from July 2014 to June 2017, NEEP continues to support improving the efficient use of energy in Nepal. Led by the Ministry of Energy, the program assists with the introduction of market based energy efficiency services for the private and public sector, backs the development and introduction of standards for biomass based improved cooking stoves for rural households and provides direct advice and expertise to the government for the establishment of policy framework to foster energy efficiency in the country..... +Read More

Project Components
Along with growing prominence of energy efficiency in the country achieved in the past through NEEP, the second phase of NEEP focuses on horizontal and vertical widening of the energy efficiency market. The Energy Efficiency Center (EEC) under the Federation of Nepalese Chamber of Commerce and Industry as well as energy efficiency units at District Chamber of Commerce and Industry in various districts continues to provide energy efficiency services not only to industrial sectors but also to energy intensive public infrastructure...... +Read More



Three fourth of Nepal’s population still depends on biomass as the main source of energy for cooking and heating. The majority of them uses traditionally open fires or so called “3 stone stoves”. These are generally inefficient in terms of energy consumption and release harmful emissions affecting both human health and environment. ... +Read More



NEEP will support the drafting of an Energy Efficiency Strategy (EEST) as well as a Biomass Energy Strategy (BEST). Both Strategies will be complementing the National Energy Strategy. In many countries Energy Efficiency/Conservation Policy is an integral part of the Energy Policy and of the respective development plans. The policy sets the regulatory framework and incentives for the energy sector and the energy consumers to balance supply and demand on low or moderate economic cost.....+Read More
