Description:

The objective of the National Energy Conservation (PROCEL) is to promote the rationalization of production and consumption of electricity, in order to eliminate waste and reduce costs.PROCELbegan in 1985 as a programme run by Electrobras but created by the Ministries of Mines and Energy, Commerce, and Industry. In 1991, PROCEL was transformed into a government program and its scope and responsibilities expanded. PROCEL helps fund conservation projects involving R&D, demonstrations, educational and training programmes, marketing strategies, direct installation and upgrading inefficient equipment, and demand side management in the electricity sector.This programme has several sub-programmes within it, including programmes targeted at buildings, sanitation, public lighting, municipal energy management, education, and industry, as well as an energy efficiency and consumption label for appliances.
