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. PROCEL began in 1985 as a programme run by Eletrobras but created by the Ministry of Mines and Energy and the Ministry of Industry and Commerce. 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.
