The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (4E) Project

The objective of the 4E project is to further develop legal and regulatory preconditions and related capacities for investment in renewable energy and energy efficiency. The two fields of cooperation under the 4E project, Energy” and “Energy Efficiency”, are equally important and both incorporate the need for a switch towards supply and a more efficient use of energy resourcecooperation consists of three action areas, each geared towards the development of the sub-sectors and the facilitation of (in particular private sector) investment.

Action Area 1

Legal and Regulatory Framework Conditions

The project supports MOIT in improving the regulatory framework in order to establish comprehensive planning and facilitate the private sector investment. Activities include the preparation of a national biomass planning, a national solar assessment, and development of biomass and waste-to-energy investment guidelines.


Action Area 2

Capacity Development 

The take-up of renewable energy requires to train national and provincial governmental officers, investors, banks and consultancy companies on these new technologies. Activities include exchange between policy makers and professionals from other countries, formal training on policy and technical issues.  


Action Area 3

Technology Cooperation

The project aims at establishing links between investors and technology providers of appropriate technologies and providing up-to-date technology information including German know-how. The activities include match-making and technology exchanges.

Action Area 1

Legal and Regulatory Framework Conditions

The project aims at providing comprehensive information on the past National Energy Efficiency Program in order to support the policy makers to accelerate energy efficiency efforts of energyintensive industrial companies. Activities include the review of the regulatory framework and the analysis of past energy audits.

Action Area 2

Capacity Development

The project aims at supporting national and provincial government officers in enforcing and improving EE mandatory measures and supporting energy-intensive companies to implement EE measures. Activities include training of provincial department of industry and trades, training energy auditors, and piloting an energy efficiency network in an industrial park.

Action Area 3

Technology Cooperation

Access to information of cost-efficient and up-to-date technologies as well as new policy development in the field of EE is needed for policy makers and investors to accelerate energy savings. Activities include organization of match-making, participation in international and national conferences and exchange with policy makers and professionals from other countries.
