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’’. Energy Management System (EnMS) 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.
