  • Facilitating Energy Efficiency in Indian Railways
  • Sector Energy Efficiency

    Undertaken By CII-Sohrabji Godrej Green Business Centre

    Undertaken By base All India

    Year 2017

    The Indian Railways consumes nearly 2 % of the total electricity generated in the country. In anticipation of this to rise further, the Indian Railways has identified the need for an aggressive push towards energy savings through energy efficient technologies and best practices in the Production Units and Workshops. In light of this, Shakti is supporting the development of low-carbon pathway for the Railways through enhanced energy efficiency and use of clean energy sources.

    In recent years, rapid urbanization coupled with higher disposable incomes and comfort needs have led to a sharp expansion of the urban building floor area and rise in space cooling demand. Shakti is supporting a sustainable smart space cooling coalition of civil society organizations. The coalition with its diverse expertise on space cooling is going to come out with policy recommendations on key space cooling elements in buildings design & cooling technology, codes & standards, and market transformation.

    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.

  • Sector Energy Efficiency

    Undertaken By Ernst & Young

    Undertaken By base All India

    Year 2016

    The Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) sector plays a key role in India's economy. It contributes to around 45% of the country’s manufacturing output and is growing at a rapid pace. Shakti is prioritizing several strategic, policy regulatory and institutional interventions to make them cleaner and more energy efficient.

  • Energy efficiency based public procurement of information and communication technology (ICT) equipments
  • Sector Appliances

    Undertaken By Manufactures Association of Information Technology (MAIT)

    Undertaken By base All India

    Year 2016

    The total electricity consumption by IT hardware equipment has increased to 21.7 billion kWh in FY14 and this is expected to rise further. In light of this, Shakti commissioned the development of energy efficiency based procurement guidelines for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) equipment.

  • Improving efficiency in the urban built environment

    Rapid urbanisation requires adequate provision for urban infrastructure, buildings and services to meet the needs of the increasing population in cities, both effectively and sustainably. However, at the urban level, our understanding of how sustainability and resource efficiency issues might be addressed has been limited. The built environment and within that specifically, environmental norms and energy efficiency are subject to a number of policies, laws and regulations handled in different capacities by a range of Ministries and Departments. They vary by scale – from a level of a building, community or large developments to city level interventions; and also by governance pathways at the local, state and national level. These policies/programmes very often refer to a set of overlapping and sometimes conflicting norms for efficiency in the built environment. Addressing efficiency and sustainability concerns at an urban level offers the potential to optimise energy efficiency interventions with urban design norms, for example, at a community level. To enable this, Shakti supported an assessment of polices which impact urban efficiency and explore possibilities for harmonisation.

  • Model ESCO contracts for Industrial energy efficiency projects

    Year 2014

    The increased participation of Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) is an important pathway for accelerating energy efficiency in India. An ESCO is a company that delivers energy efficiency gains to its customers; its compensation is directly tied to the energy savings achieved. Indian ESCOs have not been able to tap into it their huge potential owing to the lack of simple energy performance contracts, robust measurement and verification tools and effective mechanisms for dispute resolutions, amongst other reasons.

    In a bid to address these challenges, Shakti collaborated with the Alliance for Energy Efficient Economy (AEEE) to work a model ESCO performance contract, which includes measurement & verification arrangements and dispute resolution mechanisms based on an actual energy efficiency project implementation. This model contract has been developed on a pilot basis in consultation with relevant stakeholders such as ESCOs, Indian industry and financing institutions.

  • Responding to the Urban Heat Island effect

    Year 2014

    Urban Heat Island (UHI) is an urban area with higher surface and ambient air temperatures than its surrounding suburban and rural areas. This phenomenon is generally associated with increase in built up area in urban environments. The increase in near-surface air temperatures directly impacts the cooling requirements within buildings leading to a shift towards air-conditioned comfort, while adversely impacting the comfort of pedestrians and cyclists in the city, leading to a shift towards motorised transport. Both of these factors directly impact the energy requirements and further add to the urban anthropogenic heat, creating a vicious cycle. Addressing this Urban Heat Island effect is, therefore, essential for low-carbon urban growth in the country.

    In this backdrop, Shakti commissioned A B Lall Architects to review the current status of research and policy response on the Urban Heat Island effect, and identify potential policy initiatives to help mitigate urban heat island effect.
