Mandatory energy management requirements for energy intensive companies in the industry sector were introduced on 22 April 2013 under a new Energy Conservation Act (ECA). Energy intensive companies consuming 54 TJ of energy or more each year are required to appoint an energy manager, monitor and report energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, and submit energy efficiency improvement plans.
The EENP is targeted at:
- Companies that are interested in improving their energy efficiency and implementing energy management practices.
- Companies that are large energy consumers especially those that consume 54TJ of energy or more per year.
The EENP programme comprises three components.
1) Energy Management System
Partners will be encouraged to adopt an Energy Management System at the organisational level so that the measurement and management of energy consumption, as well as the identification of energy efficiency improvements, can be undertaken systematically.
2) EENP Learning Network
The Learning Network aims to provide opportunities for the industry to learn about energy efficiency ideas, technologies, practices, standards and case studies.
This includes platforms such as high level fora that are targeted at top management, conferences and technical workshops targeted at senior and middle management teams and technical staff, and learning journeys. Energy efficiency technical workshops on industrial systems will also be organized to provide intensive training to engineers and practitioners in energy efficiency so as to develop their capabilities.
The EENP Learning Network will be augmented by energy efficiency benchmarking studies that would be conducted in collaboration with industry, to help companies to determine their energy efficiency improvement potential and identify cost-effective measures that they can implement to improve energy productivity.

3) EENP National Recognition Scheme
The EENP National Recognition Scheme (known as EENP Awards) recognises the efforts and achievements of corporations and corporate teams in excellent energy management practices and in improving energy efficiency.

EENP Partners will work towards adopting in-house energy management systems which involves appointing energy managers, developing energy policies, establishing energy targets and implementing energy efficiency improvement plans. More details on the energy management system can be found here.
