National Energy Efficiency & Conservation Act 2016
Conservation and efficient use of energy is not only for the development of the country but also has great potential to improve energy intensity of the country to make exports more competitive. It is therefore, imperative to establish institutions and procedures for this purpose. Pakistan is now among countries where necessary legislation has been promulgated through the passage of NEECA Act. In order to address this situation, the present Government has exhibited strong commitment and launched several potential initiatives. The Act has given a legal basis to cover the whole spectrum of activities in different sectors, starting from identification of energy efficiency and conservation opportunities and including technology demonstration, undertaking pilot projects, information and outreach, training and education, and development of plans and policies for promoting mitigation, energy efficiency and conservation best practices.
