- Creating a database of motor energy consumption and the motor inventories of the companies in the region, expanding the database over the course of time, and determining areas with potential for greater energy efficiency.
- Engaging in meetings with and/or visiting companies that are likely to replace their current inefficient motors with energy-efficient motors,
- Selecting companies in which motor energy efficiency audits are to be conducted,
- Taking part in the execution of audits,
- Determining companies that are willing to invest in the light of the feasibility reports compiled based on the results of the audits,
- Following-up and coordinating the procurement and financing of efficient motors (
