EMAK is managed by the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (IEEJ). The EMAK project contributes to the activities of a Task Group of the International Partnership of Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC) and the Government of Japan. Funding for the EMAK project is dependent on Voluntary Contributions from interested parties. To date, funding and in-kind contributions have been provided by the Governments of Japan, China, Australia and the US.
The Energy Management Action Network (EMAK) was established in 2009 to promote the improvement of industrial energy efficiency and energy savings in industry and the commercial sector. The primary objective of EMAK is to contribute to accelerated uptake of energy management practices and systems in industry and the commercial sector through creating platforms for sharing proven and innovative practices and facilitating capacity building. This includes creating opportunities for networks between policy makers and industry practitioners and establishing platforms to share best practices on policy frameworks, human resource development and on state-of-art management systems and practices.
