Energy Efficiency in Key Industrial Sectors in Iran (Cement Industry)

- United Nations Industrial Development Organization
9/2016 - 08/2017

Description of project:

The project "Energy Efficiency in Key Industrial Sectors" is financed by the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) and implemented by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) as the implementation center of the GEF.

Activities undertaken:

  • Strengthening energy efficiency through the creation of voluntary energy agreements with the industrial sectors
  • Establish a framework for national energy management standards
  • Support for capacity building through training
  • Development of Energy Efficiency targets
  • Provision of benchmarks and above all the identification of technology improvement potentials for the energy-intensive cement industry

The results of the project present the latest state of energy efficiency in the cement industry in Iran. For Iran, which is one of the major cement producers in the world, energy efficiency plays an important role in making the sector more sustainable and competitive. Within the framework of the study, 23 cement production lines in Iran were compared with local and international energy-efficient practices and thus the assessment of the energy efficiency improvement in the sector was made possible.

- Deutsche Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH
Thailand / Vietnam
2013 - 2015

Description of project:

A consortium of Envidatec GmbH and LOYTEC Electronics GmbH promoted by Deutsche Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft (DEG) was undertaking a development project ( in Thailand and Vietnam with a main objective of developing local expertise in building and industrial Energy Efficiency, Energy Management System (EnMS), Energy Monitoring (EM) and Energy Efficiency Analysis (EEA). The objectives were achieved through a series of pilot projects and related trainings. The project was implemented in three phases over a period of two years. Local energy service providers and energy consultants were the cornerstones of this project. Knowledge transfer was taking place between the consortium and the local partners and a long-term partnership was established as a result.

Activities undertaken:

  • Energy audit of 8 pilot projects.
  • Implementation of EnMS ISO 50001 in 8 pilot projects.
  • Theoretical and practical training for the local partners in various topics.
  • Certification of the pilot projects and local partners by TÜV Rheinland Thailand and TÜV Rheinland Vietnam.
  • Implementation in 3 phases.
