The objective is to reduce electricity consumption in households, government and commercial buildings as well as street lighting.

Activities: (2016 - 2017)
The NAMA is a Government driven demand side management (DSM) initiative. The Ministry and the National Electricity Utility and the Energy Regulator have already carried out a pilot project at their head office, where incandescent bulbs were replaced by LED lights.

The pilot project realized at least 515 000 kWh of electricity annually, mitigating more than 531 tCO2 equivalent of carbon emissions. The planned retrofitting of 250W with 90W LED lights in the City of Harare is expected to reduce electricity consumption by at least 40 GWh per year.
