The component aims at establishing necessary elements of market development for energy efficiency services and energy-efficient products to improve the required economic and financial conditions for strengthening energy efficiency and energy conservation in Nepal. In collaboration with Energy Efficiency Centre of Federation of Nepalese Chamber of Commerce and Industries (FNCCI) and Town Development Fund (TDF), energy consumers, businesses, communities and cities are advised on the introduction of standardized operational energy management plans. Furthermore, the current range of services offered by the partners (energy audits, energy management consulting) will be extended to provide investment-related advice for the implementation of energy efficiency measures. On the product side, the project advises on establishing digital customer information platforms to promote energy efficient products. Moreover, economically relevant players on an individual, organizational and societal level will be strengthened through awareness raising campaigns, advice, training, and peer learning in networks for the promotion of energy efficiency.
