The Industry sector accounts for 40% of the country’s total energy consumption. Energy efficient measures and processes can bring about considerable savings. Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation (Shakti) works in support of India’s Perform Achieve and Trade (PAT) scheme, a market based mechanism in which industrial sectors are assigned efficiency targets. Shakti prioritizes several interventions to make the Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) sector cleaner and more energy efficient. Shakti also engages with stakeholders in industry and key industry associations to mainstream energy efficiency in new infrastructure development.

Indian Railways is the one of the largest consumers of electricity in the country consuming over 17.5 billion units a year. As track and passengers continue to grow, implementing energy efficiency solutions and tapping into renewable energy is central to the Railway’s growth strategy. As a Designated Consumer under the Perform, Achieve and Trade...Read more
The growing energy deficit coupled with fluctuating global energy prices has led to greater focus on energy efficiency. One of the most important ways to realize energy efficiency potential in industries is through Energy Services Companies (ESCOs) who implement energy efficiency projects though Energy Savings Performance Contracting. ESCO-based...Read more
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 the PAT scheme concluded in March 2015, and the second phase began in April 2016. This briefing paper series provides a comprehensive analysis of the PAT scheme, drawing from...Read more
As engines of economic growth, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) play an important role in India’s economy. SMEs contribute to around 45% of the country’s manufacturing output and are growing at a rapid pace. The energy savings potential from the SME sector is pegged at more than 15%. This could potentially translate to 3.5 Million ToE....Read more
Subsequent phases of the PAT scheme are expected to include new industrial subsectors based on their energy savings potential. This initiative, supported by Shakti, establishes energy consumption in select sectors and prioritizes them based on their energy saving potential. The following sectors are covered – Beverages, Chemicals, Dairy,...Read more
