Energy Management Action Network for Industrial Efficiency (EMAK)

EMAK was established in 2009 as a forum for discussing policy issues related to energy management and sharing the best practices of each country, region and industry. It is based around two networks:

  • a network of policy‑makers responsible for promoting best practice policies for energy management; and
  • a network of industry stakeholders focused on real-world applications of energy management systems.

EMAK contributes to work under the G20 Energy Efficiency Leading Programme.

Why does industry matter for energy efficiency?

Recent developments

Since 2009, EMAK has organised 7 workshops and 2 webinars for the purpose of sharing experiences on the design and implementation of energy efficiency policies and programmes among numerous policy makers and energy managers. Building on this existing work, recent EMAK activities have centred on continuing the workshop series to bring together participants from central and local governments, the industrial sector, private banks and government institutions. Hosted by Japan, the workshops have served as important interfaces for stakeholders, especially policy makers and industry practitioners responsible for energy management in their current operations. The most recent workshop took place in February 2017 in Jakarta, Indonesia, and focused on the theme of recognised energy management best practices and national/international award programmes for best practices.

The latest publications for this task group can be found on the Publications page.
