EESL implemented 10 energy efficiency projects during 2014 -15 with a total investment of Rs 1470 million. The efforts have led to a carbon dioxide emission reduction of 77 million kg annually. The uniqueness of EESL’s programmes is that they have created a road map for making energy efficiency more accessible and affordable. In the next phase, EESL aims to focus on agricultural pumps, centrally monitored street lighting programmes and building management systems (BMSs). Under BMS, the company will make government buildings energy efficient. The office of NITI Aayog on Parliament Street, New Delhi, has already been retrofitted by EESL and been made into a 5-star energy-efficient building.
Shri Saurabh Kumar, Managing Director, EESL in an exclusive interview with Power Line magazine mentioned NITI Aayog as one of the first government buildings to become a 5 star energy efficient building. Catch the complete interview in the November issue.
