  • 3

    Main efforts (1)Accelerating structural adjustments

    Re-orientation of economic growth paradigm, from GDP-centered to a balanced approach

    Developing market mechanisms Removing distortions in market signalsNurturing energy efficiency services providers, (e.g., ESCos)Labling (case study)

    Improving technology and productivityInvesting in R&DStimulating indigenous innovationsTechnology transfer and adaptationEliminate the inefficient capacities and appliancesHuman resource accumulation for energy efficiencyInternational Cooperation

  • 4

    Main efforts (2)Strengthening the legal and regulatory framework

    Energy law, Energy-saving law, Renewable energy law, Electricity Lawe.g., Building Plans, codes, fuel efficiency standards

    Implementing policy measuresIncluding fiscal policies:
