Question raised in Lok Sabha on Energy Efficiency, 04/08/2016. Government has specified norms and standards for reduction in specific energy consumption (SEC) for energy intensive sectors. In cycle-I (2012-13 to 2014-15) of Perform, Achieve and Trade (PAT) scheme, 478 industries of eight sectors were given targets to reduce their SEC. The cumulative target for energy saving for the cycle-I was 6.68 Million Tonnes of Oil Equivalent (MTOE) to be achieved by the end of 2014-15, against which energy saving of 8.67 MTOE have been achieved which is about 30% more than the target.

Question raised in Rajya Sabha on Factors responsible for climate change, 09/05/2016. The Government launched National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) in 2008 which outlines India’s strategy to meet the challenge of Climate Change.

This publication attempts to present a range of initiatives highlighting enhanced actions in the area of mitigation and adaptation in India.

This paper explores the possibility of linkages between the PAT scheme and the bilateral carbon offset mechanism proposed by the Government of Japan. It is well established that linking a domestic program with any international

This new study released by the Centre for Development Finance, IFMR, and IIT Madras evaluates the design of the eight climate missions of the country as developed by individual ministries using the principles laid out in the National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) of the Prime Minister’s Council.

The Ministry of Power (MOP) and Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) were tasked to prepare the implementation plan for the National Mission on Enhanced Energy Efficiency (NMEEE). NMEEE spelt out the following four new initiatives to enhance energy efficiency, in addition to the programmes on energy efficiency being pursued by MOP and BEE.

Government of India is designing National Mission on Enhanced Energy Efficiency (NMEEE), which is one out of eight missions planned under the National Action Plan on Climate Change. This note presents a short overview of the planned actions.

National Mission on Enhanced Energy Efficiency approved by the Prime Minister's Council on Climate Change. This mission will help save about 5 per cent of the annual energy consumption by 2015, & nearly 100 million tonnes of carbon dioxide every year.
