National Energy Efficiency Agency (NEEA)
Policy measure

According to Sebitosi (2008), the National Energy Efficiency Agency (NEEA) was established in 2006 with the initial objective of overseeing the implementation of demand side management and energy efficiency projects undertaken by the South African electricity public utility company, Eskom, and other entities in the country. Its purpose, in particular, is to monitor the measurement and verification of all such projects undertaken by energy service companies (ESCOs) through Eskom.

No identified implementation measures.

Due to Eskom’s monopoly position in the South African electricity supply sector, the country’s entire database is virtually in their ‘custody’, and without their cooperation, no serious planning can be effected by any institution. This in turn severely constrains any energy efficiency enhancing activities of the government (Sebitosi, 2008).

No outcomes have been identified.
