Post-2015 NEES aims to build on the achievements of NEES 2005, stimulating further energy efficiency improvements through a combination of fiscal and financial incentives, a robust legal and regulatory framework, and enabling measures. The strategy has been framed to complement the policies and strategies of the Department of Environment Affairs (DEA), the Department of Public Works (DPW), the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Transport (DoT) and the National Treasury.
