Bhutan energy efficiency baseline study

In view of the possible adverse effects of climate change on hydro power generation in Bhutan and the imminent need to ensure energy security, the Royal Government of Bhutan recognizes the need to develop a policy and regulatory framework that promotes and enhances optimization of energy use through demand side management measures. With the support from UNDP, Department of Renewable Energy, of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MoEA), Royal Government of Bhutan (RGoB) has taken the initiative to prepare a report on “Bhutan Energy Efficiency Baseline Study” to assess the energy consumption and efficiency levels of the energy intensive sectors including industry, transport, buildings and agriculture. This report is also aimed at identifying energy efficiency policy interventions to enable the government to develop “National Energy Efficiency Policy”.
