Call for Improved Energy Efficiency in Zambia

A CALL for improvements in Zambia’s energy efficiency were made at the opening of the country’s 2013 Energy Week - themed ‘Energy Conservation - My Responsibility’.

The Times of Zambia reports that Charles Zulu, Zambia’s Mines, Energy and Water Development Deputy Minister called for concerted efforts towards reducing the country's power deficit, stating that improvement in energy efficiency is not just for the government to drive but the whole nation needs to be active for the sake of the economy and the environment.

“My government is ready to work with all organizations that are promoting energy conservation and efficiency. I would like to assure the dealers in energy saving equipment of the government’s support in their endeavors,” he said.

Zulu added that this year’s theme for the energy week, ‘Energy Conservation - My Responsibility’, was in tune with the government’s national energy policy and its ambition to promote energy efficiency across the country.
