Description The Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator will secure public commitments by governments, industrial corporations and associations, utilities, and financial institutions to drive the adoption of Energy Management Systems (EnMS ) in Industry. At the same time it will create a collaborative network with NGOs and other international organizations to provide industry with tools, resources and best practice information.

The Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator Platform, is the sixth in a growing series of sectoral initiatives (on lighting, appliances, buildings, district energy systems, vehicle fuel efficiency and industry) under SE4All’s Accelerator Platform, which aims to help double the global rate of improvement of overall energy efficiency by 2030.

Objectives Its objective is to help double the global rate of improvement in industrial energy efficiency by 2030. 
Activities The Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator Platform will provide four distinct offerings: (a) support for the development of energy efficiency policies; (b) capacity-building for the adoption of EnMS by enterprises; (c) financing solutions for both governments and enterprises; and (d) knowledge-sharing for industrial stakeholders. Another key focus will be helping to remove the barriers that hamper industrial companies’ efforts to improve their energy management. - See more at:
