Supporting the Policy Enabling Environment for Development

Energy Efficiency

Programs that increase the energy efficiency of power demand have the effect of making available for new customers (or the same customers adding new load) power not consumed due to higher efficiency.  "Negawatts" produced by efficiency are just as useful as new megawatts, but they have the additional benefit of not producing any environmental harm that some other sources of generation have.  There is an existing working group on energy efficiency within EdM that SPEED+ will support to identify and assist in the development of policies that can be successfully implemented within Mozambique. We will also make sure that our technical training includes the concepts of and importance of energy efficiency in reducing the capacity investment needed and decreasing risk to the economy.
