The Parliament of Mongolia adopted the "Energy Conservation”law to promote efficient use of energy and regulate matters connected therewith on November the 26th, 2016. According to this law, the government adopted rules on the thresholds of energy consumptions andfor defining the Designated Consumers. Nearly 120 organizations became Designated consumers, who have higher consumption of energy.
Today, a workshop of "Energy conservation management and efficiency" was held in Ulaanbaatar, jointly hosted by the Energy Regulatory Commission of Mongolia, "Energy efficiency of the system" project team from the German Corporation for International Cooperation, and Integration E-E Ltd from Germany. More than 150 industry leaders, engineers, and technicians, from 110 companies, who were identified with higher energy consumption, participated in this joint-workshop.
Speakers and presenters at this joint-workshop were highly trained international experts from Germany, with their talks and presentations covering a many interesting topics including; "Energy efficiency in equipments of the electricity and heat generation", "General methodology of comparing and analysing the energy demand and consumption" and "ISO50001 Energy management standard”. Furthermore, Ms Kh.Erdenechuluun, who is the Managing Director from the Energy Regulatory Commission, introduced the Energy Conservation Law and new adopted regulations from the Government resolution of 294, 295 in 2016. Provided general briefings about current economic demands, roles, and responsibilities of energy conservation managers, and exchanged views on new rules regards to the energy efficiency and conservation with experts.
It has been calculated that if the selected 120 high energy designated consumers reduce their energy consumption by 10 percent, it would save 42.9 billion tugriks annually. Participantsexpressed their keen interest to take an active part in the implementation and enactment of the energy conservation law, which supports environmental friendliness and provides an economic benefit in the long run.
