The Perform Achieve and Trade (PAT) scheme is a market-based scheme designed to encourage energy efficiency in energy intensive industrial subsectors. The first phase of PAT concluded on March 31, 2015 and the second phase is likely to begin in April, 2016. This series of briefing papers provides a comprehensive analysis about evidence-based market assessments coupled with robust stakeholder viewpoints to enable exchange of ideas, which are also likely to shape the design and implementation of the second phase.

The PAT Pulse Compendium encapsulates the key findings of the research done across four thematic areas – analysis of PAT cycle 1 and the key learnings, sizing the investment potential of industrial energy efficiency, potential financing frameworks in industrial energy efficiency and innovations in smart manufacturing. The report also highlights some of the latest national and global technologies and innovations in the area of energy efficiency that have demonstrated their reliability successfully.
The new paper attempts to identify the most optimal financing routes to unlock the identified potential. Based on high level stakeholder engagement and industry analysis, it identifies two key determinants of overall financing patterns: the size of the company as well as its willingness to contribute to the overall financing of energy efficiency. It suggests that cross-cutting technologies across industries have maximum potential under the ESCO model. It also identifies better financing routes for the Chlor-Alkali and Aluminum sector, and the Cement and Fertilizer sector.
With increasing resource scarcity and increasing competition, Indian manufacturing industries would necessarily need to keep up with the global advancements. Towards this, Internet of Things (IoT) would act as a key enabler in smart manufacturing - the next big leap influencing energy efficiency. In this issue of PAT Pulse we have explored the prevalence, drivers, business case and key challenges for IoT based Smart Manufacturing (SM) solutions in Indian industry. The issue also provides updates on PAT cycle 2 sectors and targets as announced by Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). It also provides a brief snapshot of key news and events in the industrial energy efficiency domain.
This issue captures the sector-wise and overall investment potential of energy efficiency in India. It also provides critical information about the terms and conditions associated with the ESCerts market and other policy movements. Additionally, it lists promising and innovative ideas in the energy efficiency space which have already been successfully tested elsewhere.
PAT pulse is a briefing paper series developed on India’s Perform Achieve and Trade scheme. The first issue captures the findings of the survey conducted amongst designated consumers, updates on proposed amendments, along with a timeline for widening the scheme. It also covers innovative solutions including IoT (Internet of Things) driven Smart Energy Analytics Systems, automated cleaning of condenser and heat exchanger tubes and wireless occupancy sensors etc., which are expected to improve energy efficiency in industries.
