As part of its mandate, KEP is facilitating sustained periodic discussions and dialogue between BEE, Industry and other relevant stakeholders on key policy issues to seek views and feedback from the industry, raising awareness regarding policy directives and improving preparedness among the industry to implement energy efficiency improvement targets and Energy Management Systems.
