Impact of energy efficiency measures for the year 2018-19

This report was prepared by an Expert agency PWC Ltd, who was engaged by Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) for independent verification to assess the resultant annual savings in energy as well as CO 2 emissions through various initiatives in India. The findings of the report reflect that the implementation of various energy efficiency schemes has led to total electricity savings to the tune of 113.16 Billion Units in 2018-19, which is 9.39% of the net electricity consumption. With a total energy consumption of 553.9 Million Tonnes of Oil Equivalent (Mtoe) in 2017-18, India stood the third largest energy consumer in the world after United States of America and China. India also ranks highest in terms of growth rate of energy consumption in the world. India’s energy consumption is expected to grow fastest among global economies and account for 11% of global energy demand by 2040.
