    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 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.

    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 is supporting developing 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 partnered with ICLEI, to assess polices which impact urban efficiency and explore possibilities for harmonisation.

  • Model ESCO contracts for Industrial energy efficiency projects
  • Sector Industry

    By Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy

    By base All India

    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 has commissioned 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

    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.

    The Perform Achieve and Trade (PAT) scheme is an innovative policy mandate, a market-based mechanism launched in 2012, designed to increase energy savings in energy intensive and large industries. The first phase of the scheme runs from 2012-2015 and is expected to save about 6 to 7 million TOE (tons of oil equivalent) of energy and a reduction of about 25 million Tons of CO2 equivalent. The scheme has been designed and implemented by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), and Shakti has actively supported it. Since the first phase of the scheme is coming to a close, it is timely to analyse the performance of the scheme and provide recommendations for enhancing its effectiveness in subsequent phases. Shakti is collaborating with PricewaterhouseCoopers to conduct this critical analysis.

  • Strengthening SDAs for effective implementation of NMEEE

    Year 2013

    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.
