National Energy Policy

The instrumental in guiding the future Energy Sector development are based on the three principal energy objectives of the National Energy Policy of 1979, namely:

  1. The Supply Objective
    • To ensure adequate, secure and cost-effective energy supply through developing and utilizing alternative sources of energy (both non-renewable and renewable) from within and outside the country.
    • To ensure the realization of the supply objective, the focus of policy initiatives, particularly with respect to crude oil and gas, were aimed at both extending the life of domestic depletable energy resources, as well as diversifiying away from oil dependence to include other forms of fuel resources.
  2. The Utilization Objective
    • To promote efficient utilization of energy and discourage wasteful and non-productive patterns of energy consumption.To date, the Government’s approach to realize this objective is through the implementation of various awareness programmes targeted at the energy industry and consumers to exercise efficiency in energy production, transportation, conversion, utilization and consumption. Demand Side Management initiatives by the utilities, particularly through tariff incentives, has had some impact on efficient utilization and consumption.The Government initiative to encourage co-generation is aimed at promoting an efficient method for generating heat energy and electricity from a single energy source. This in addition can contribute to a reduction in the costs of conversion.
    • To enhance the realization of the Utilisation Objective, the regulatory approach has to be in place to supplement the market approach. Towards this end, the energy efficiency regulation has been formulated and its focus is on designation of large consumers, appointment of energy managers and equipment labelling.The Government is conscious of the need to work with the industry to promote energy efficiency in order to reduce inefficient and wasteful use of energy in industrial facilities. In consideration of this factor, a number of industrial energy efficiency initiatives have been planned and are being implemented and these include energy auditing program, energy service companies support programmes and technology demonstration programmes.
  3. The Environmental Objective
    • To minimize the negative environmental impacts on the energy supply chain i.e. energy production, conservation, transportation and utilization.
