Energy efficiency will be crucial to meeting India’s goal of providing reliable, affordable and sustainable access to energy to its citizens. A number of policies and programmes aimed at conserving energy, improving energy efficiency, and managing energy demand have been implemented in India in recent years. Both the scale and the scope of these programmes are increasing, UJALA (Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All), the large-scale programme to offer LED bulbs to households, being one example. Therefore, their comprehensive and periodic evaluation becomes even more necessary. It is within this context that Shakti has supported the development of broad frameworks on evaluating energy efficiency programmes being implemented in India.
