The objective of the NAMA is to identify and implement energy efficiency measures in buildings of the public sector in a consistent and replicable manner.

Activities: (2017 - 2021)
South Africa’s Energy Efficiency Strategy already sets a 15% energy intensity reduction target for public buildings, and the Climate Change Response Strategy includes the ‘Energy Efficiency and Energy Demand Management flagship programme’, which comprises energy efficiency in the industry and in private, commercial and public buildings. This NAMA therefore aims to :

  • scale up support for implementing this Energy Efficiency and Energy Demand Management flagship programme
  • homogenize national, provincial and municipal strategies.

This NAMA was submitted and pre-selected in the third call for projects to the NAMA Facility to acquire funding.


  • a Project Preparation Facility enables provinces and municipalities to develop bankable energy efficiency investment plans for their public buildings. A Guarantee Fund supports private ESCos in raising the necessary finance for entering contracts with the public owners of these buildings to finance and implement these plans.
  • a Service Desk advises provinces and municipalities on energy efficiency opportunities in public buildings by helping to raise awareness, understand the potential for energy efficiency and associated profits and carbon savings, set baselines and targets and finally identify concrete energy saving opportunities. The desk supports the government in measuring the EEPBP’s results and it supports further development of mechanisms that promote energy efficiency.
  • EEPBP uses NAMA Facility funding to mobilise public and private sector investments in public buildings in a 1 to 3.3 ratio.
