India to increase energy efficiency investments
India could commit as much as $5 billion (£3.4bn) to energy efficiency projects by 2020, a new report by consultancy Sustainable Outlook has been able to suggest.
That is the estimated amount to be invested through the government’s Perform-Achieve-Trade (PAT) scheme, which was launched in 2008 and aims to increase energy efficiency in industries by trading energy saving certificates in power intensive sectors.
The goal is to make the iron, steel, aluminium, cement and fertiliser industries – which account for 60% of India’s primary energy consumption in 478 covered facilities – more efficient.
The majority of the investment would be spent in specific process innovation techniques, stated the report.
Technologies such as variable frequency drives and waste heat recovery systems are said to account for 21% and 24% of the potential investment.
Building Energy Management Systems – the sure-fire way to cut energy expenditure
The best solution for reducing and thoroughly managing energy bills is the implementation of a solid and reliable Building Energy Management system.
Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.
