SLSEA program to meet energy crisis

The Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority (SLSEA) under the Ministry of Power and Energy has implemented a program to increase energy efficiency and energy conservation to meet the energy crisis.

SLSEA chairman Ananda Gunasekera said that the domestic use of CFL bulbs and using alternative energy sources for thermal application and generating electricity in the industrial sector enormously help to save the energy generated by hydro and fuel power stations.

“High quality CFL bulbs with energy labels issued by the SLSEA are available in the market. People must use high quality CFL bulbs which conserve energy instead of low quality CFL bulbs, he said.

He said that the industrial sector has been encouraged to go for renewable energy sources such as Dendro thermal energy by SLSEA.

“Leading industrial ventures have already modified their plants for thermal application and to generate electricity by Dendro. The SLSEA has helped them to obtain funds from banks to meet the initial costs, he said.

He said that all assistance and incentives are given to entrepreneurs who are engaged in the renewable energy sector.

At present a series of renewable energy projects such as mini hydro projects, wind power projects, solar power projects and garbage power projects are in progress specially in the deep South, North Central, Central and Eastern provinces, he said.
