Project Details

  • Current status of the project: Ongoing
  • Project funded by: European Union
  • Project started on: 2022
  • Project completion: 2025

Accelerating Industries’ Climate Response in Sri Lanka is a 5-year project funded by the European Union under GCCA+ initiative. The main government counterparts are the Ministry of Industry, Ministry of Environment, and the Ministry of Power and Energy in Sri Lanka.

The Project’s overall objective is to mitigate climate change by assisting Sri Lanka in implementing its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) for the industrial sector. The specific Project objective is to scale-up Sri Lanka’s industrial sector’s response to climate change. The project aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by accelerating the adoption of cutting-edge technologies, well-established best practices, and strategies for reducing carbon intensity in terms of energy and resource efficiency. Additionally, this initiative is intended to support long-term development advantages including empowering project recipients and enhancing the ability of government colleagues.

Project Activities

The 05 year Project consists of five components as follows;

  • A Measuring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) system for the industry sector is developed and implemented and baseline for the industrial sector established
  • An industrial sector plan for implementing NDCs has been validated and activities prioritized according to agreed criteria
  • Policy and regulatory frameworks are improved and related awareness and capacity building of stakeholders to implement these frameworks have been built
  • Capacity related to climate change mitigation practices in the area of industry is built
  • Pilot technologies and methodologies leading to improved energy efficiency and reduction in GHG emissions are tested to be then replicated

Under the “Accelerating Industries’ Climate Response in Sri Lanka” project, NCPC, Sri Lanka is providing the services for delivering activities related to the ‘‘Capacity related to climate change mitigation practices in the area of industry is built’’.

This program consists of 02 major components as conducting ISO 50001 EnMS expert training and Energy System Optimization training– ESO training (Motor System Optimization (MSO)/ Steam System Optimization (SSO) training).

Energy System Optimization (ESO) Expert Training Programme is the process of designing, operating, and maintaining an energy system in an optimal way to meet energy demand while minimizing costs and environmental impacts. This can include optimizing the use of various energy sources and technologies, such as renewable energy, fossil fuels, and energy storage systems, to meet the energy needs of a community or organization. Motor Systems and Steam Systems are the commonly used energy system in industries. During the ESO training programme, Motor System Optimization (MSO) and Steam System Optimization (SSO) will be covered.


Energy Systems Optimization (ESO) Expert Training Programme

Motor System Optimization (MSO)

Numerous sectors within the industry use electric motors at a large scale every year. These Electric motor-driven systems (EMDSs) in the industry are estimated to be responsible for about 29% of overall global, and 69% of industrial electricity consumption.. By using existing technologies and practices, the efficiency of industrial EMDS can be cost-effectively improved, provide longer motor lifespans, and a reduction in capital expenditures with serval other benefits that will follow.

Steam System Optimization (SSO)

Steam is a significant energy carrier used globally, and plays a key part in most industrial processes today. A plant’s steam system is essential to its efficient, reliable, and safe operation. For example, steam constitutes approximately 30% of the energy used in a typical petroleum refinery. Thus optimizing a steam system will benefit by energy savings to the plant, plant reliability improvement, and reduced risk of production loss.

For the initiation of the project, NCPC, Sri Lanka will be conducting a Virtual Awareness Session on Energy Systems Optimization (ESO) Expert Training Programme. The awareness session will be held on the 23rd of February 2023 from 9.00 am to 11.00 am via Microsoft Teams Platform.

To learn more about the training programme and its advantages, top management from the manufacturing industries are cordially invited to take part in this session.
