Industrial Energy Efficiency-Cambodia (IEEC)

Industrial Energy Efficiency Project is a 4 year project started from October 2011 till 2015. This project is funded by Global Environmental Facility (GEF) and implemented by United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) in collaboration with Ministry of Industry, Mines and Energy (MIME) and National Cleaner Production Office-Cambodia (NCPO-C). The main goal of the project is to promote energy efficiency practices to reduce specific energy consumption (SEC) and finally reduce GHG emissions in Cambodian industrial sectors. The project will bring about the deployment and diffusion of energy-efficient technologies and practices in industrial production. The project will cover a wide spectrum of energy systems used by industries: electricity generators, furnaces, steam systems, combined heat and power systems on the energy generation side; motors, pumps, fans, compressed air, cooling towers, and refrigerating and cooling systems, on the energy consuming side.
Energy intensive sectors namely food processing, garment factory, rubber refinery, brick kiln and rice milling are selected. This objective is achieved by demonstrating the benefit of industrial energy efficiency, capacity building of relevant personnel, institutional strengthen, up-scaling of implementation.

Project Components:

Project Component 1 - Implementation of industrial energy efficiency pilot projects

Under project component 1 the project will provide company-specific technical assistance, including energy audits and project co-financing, to support the implementation of a limited number of demonstration IEE projects in selected 5 industrial sectors with high replication and/or energy savings potential. Sectoral profile based on survey conducted, preliminary audits carried out during PPG phase to work out potential of energy and GHG emission savings.
The project will also contribute financially toward the implementation of at least 13 selected pilot IEE projects. It has to be pointed out that these pilot companies will co-finance the major part of IEE implementation from their own resources, with the present project helping them in financial engineering and preparation of bankable proposals. On the basis of survey and preliminary energy audits carried out as well as discussions with industries & industry specific associations and equipment suppliers, significant opportunities for energy efficiency improvements exists both for thermal and electrical energy usage.
At the end of the PPG phase, the project has identified already 13 potential pilot projects and 40 quick scan projects from 5 identified sectors. In addition other potential projects have been proposed by few enterprises as part of up-scaling component. Letters of co-financing commitment have been secured from 12 enterprises participating in pilot project (list attached with commitment letter in separate document), however, for units participating in quick scan only verbal commitment has been obtained so far (list attached in separate document).
Based on the PPG survey and preliminary audits, sectoral report, interviews and survey information obtained from various industry representatives regarding energy technology applications in the sectors, the following projects are identified for the energy efficiency demonstration program:
