  • Market Transformation for Energy Efficiency (MTEE): Accelerating the shift to energy-efficient appliances in a specific application through innovative measures to make the products more affordable.
  • Energy Efficiency Financing Platform (EEFP): Facilitating Financial Institutions to invest in Energy Efficiency Projects and Programmes
  • Framework for Energy Efficient Economic Development (FEEED): Developing fiscal instruments to leverage financing for Energy Efficiency through risk mitigation:
    • Partial Risk Guarantee Fund for Energy Efficiency (PRGFEE) and
    • Venture Capital Fund for Energy Efficiency (VCFEE) to promote energy efficiency
    • National Energy Conservation Award and Painting Competition
