Implementation of Energy Management System and Energy Efficiency Networks in Manufacturing Industries
The Nigerian Energy Support Programme (NESP II) aimed at enabling and fostering investments in a domestic market for renewable energy and energy efficiency, and improving access to electricity in Nigeria. The program was co-funded by the European Union and the German Government. The three-year program was implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing (FMPWH) and other stakeholders. The activities of the program were structured into three units: Data assessment and electrification planning, sustainable energy access (On-Grid and Off-Grid), and enabling environment for RE and EE Investments.
As part of the program and in close collaboration with its public and private partners, the unit Enabling Environment for RE and EE Investments aimed at strengthening quality delivery and control mechanisms to enhance an enabling market environment for the application of and investments in RE and EE. The program was currently supporting the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment (FMITI), Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), Manufacturers Association Nigeria (MAN) and Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA) in the survey of power demand and overview of energy consumption in manufacturing industries across Nigeria with the overall aim of identifying five industries that could benefit from NESP’s support to the sector in the implementation of NIS ISO 50001 standard and EEN which would improve an industry’s energy savings and cost competitiveness.
