Under the provisions of the Energy Conservation Act 2001, State Designated Agencies (SDAs) have been conferred the power to facilitate and enforce the efficient use of energy and its conservation. Thus, the State Designated Agencies (SDAs) are the strategic partners for promotion of energy efficiency and programs under Perform, Achieve and Trade (PAT) and Market Transformation for Energy Efficiency (MTEE).
To meet their obligations under the PAT and MTEE, SDAs need strengthening of their present capacity. Recognizing this, Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation initiated a study with Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy (AEEE) to map the present situation of SDA and support needed for meaningful implementation of PAT and MTEE scheme in respective states.
