Demonstration Project Scheme
Policy measure

According to World Bank documentation (2011), the ‘Energy Efficiency Promotion in Industry Project‘ was launched in China in July 2011 with the objective to “strengthen the institutional capacity for both the management and technical aspects of rational energy use in key industrial sectors in China, thereby contributing to improvements in energy efficiency and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions” (World Bank, 2011).

 

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), through its Department of Energy Conservation and Resource Utilization (DECRU), will be the executing agency of the project (World Bank, 2011).

 

Component 3 of the ‘Energy Efficiency Promotion in Industry Project‘, Demonstration Project Scheme, which aims to “provide sub-grant to about four training centers for setting up and implementing enterprise energy management programs, and further advancing the implementation of such energy management programs by selected enterprises, including, inter alia, the development of comprehensive manuals, policies, procedures, and/or action plans for establishing an - umbrella framework for the enterprise energy management programs in the selected enterprises.” (World Bank, 2011)

 

With a project cost of US$ 19.200.000 Component 3 is by far the largest component of the ‘Energy Efficiency Promotion in Industry Project’ which has a total financing requirement of US$24.110.000 (World Bank, 2011).

Implementation

Component 3 will be implemented in two phases (World Bank, 2011):

  • The first phase: “will select energy intensive industry sectors such as iron and steel, cement/building materials, petrochemical, and non-ferrous metal industries. At least 20 enterprises will be recruited by the training centers to voluntarily participate in setting up and implementing enterprise energy management programs. The training centers will provide initial guidance to the participating enterprises, and brief them on the objectives and methodologies of the energy management program. During this phase, participating enterprises will be encouraged to sustain the energy management program and eventually implement energy efficiency projects. The first phase will focus on gauging the energy management needs of enterprises, demonstrating implementation issues, and assessing the strategies for success."

  • The second phase: “will further advance the implementation of the energy management program in eight selected enterprises. For these selected enterprises, the training centers will provide specialized TA, such as development of comprehensive manuals, policies, procedures, and action plans or energy efficiency roadmaps for establishing an umbrella framework for industrial energy management and EE&C programs that are customized to the needs of the participating enterprises. The demonstration project will assist the selected enterprises to establish the energy management program framework and procedures that may include management and technical aspects of rational energy use. The end-result of the second phase of the demonstration project will be a well-established framework in the participating enterprises that can be used as an innovative approach for continual improvement to energy efficiency and increase compliance with the EC Law.”
