  • 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). The participants will receive sound knowledge, experience, and training through physical training, industry visits, awareness programs, webinars, MSO/SSO assessments, and energy reviews. Most experienced and renowned resource panel/ experts from the International organizations will share the new knowledge and their experience. This will make the individuals competent enough to manage energy use and conserve energy in their respective industry. A trained individual will also be able to offer sound advice that could make a difference within the company. The participants will be evaluated with a written exam during the course and a certificate will be issued upon successful completion of the course.

For the initiation of the project, NCPC, Sri Lanka will be conducting two Virtual Awareness Session on EnMS implementation and Energy Systems Optimization. The first awareness session was be held on the 29th of August 2022 and over 50 industry leaders from Sri Lanka joined this awareness session. The second awareness session will be held on 6th September via MS Teams platform. To learn more about the project and its advantages, top management from the manufacturing industries are cordially invited to take part in this session.
