Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority is striving to accomplish its objective through two thrust areas, namely renewable energy development and energy efficiency improvement. These two thrust areas were further divided into number of programmes and projects, in which the energy efficiency in industrial and commercial sectors will be addressed in the Sector Specific Energy Management Programme (SSEMP). Under this programme, Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority foresee to assemble capacity building programmes in target industrial and commercial sectors where such interventions are utmost necessity.
The identified target sectors are region specific, means that Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority would set priority to a specific sector which has the highest socio-economic yield in the considered region (Ex. Tea Industries in Central and Uva Provinces). Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority will then implement capacity building programmes, and if necessary, will follow-up the same with an impact assessment programme. For the year 2015, Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority expects to develop such capacity development programmes focusing the Central, Southern and Uva provinces in the sectors of Tea, Garment, Hotels, Fisheries / Ice making industries and Agriculture Sector.
