Energy Audit of Captive Power Plants
National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (NEECA) is conducting energy audits of Captive Power Plants (CPPs) through independent energy audit consulting firms across Pakistan. NEECA has been assigned this task by the CCoE in its meeting held on 4th June 2020 and intimated to NEECA by the Petroleum Division, Ministry of Energy on 30th July 2020. The aim of these energy audits is to promote efficient use of fast declining indigenous natural gas resources and utilize the excess power in the national grid.
NEECA is actively engaged with the Petroleum Division, SNGPL and SSGC and has developed Strategic and Technical working groups to streamline all the strategic, legal and operational formalities required for smooth execution of energy audits.
NEECA has mapped out the geographical & technical profile of 1141 Captive Power Plants in the country and, out of the total, 781 CPPs are operating under the SSGC and 360 under SNGPL. In the next phase, NEECA will shortlist the independent energy audit consulting firms through an extensive EOI evaluation process.
