Energy efficiency benefits
Companies can enjoy multiple benefits from investments that increase energy efficiency (EE), including:
- reduced energy costs,
- increased profits,
- use of modern technology,
- more independence from scarce energy resources,
- gaining a competitive advantage,
- improved image.
The Financing Energy Efficiency Programme Nepal has been established to exploit the great potential for EE in the Nepalese industry. On the basis of a financing agreement with the German development bank KfW, Rastriya Banijya Bank Limited (RBBL) provides grants of up to 39% for the implementation of EE measures in industry (see Programme Flyer).
