MW of avoided generation capacity. These initiatives have resulted in an avoided capacity generation of 10836 MW during the XI plan period. The importance of energy efficiency can be gauged from some of the examples given below: 1. Per Capita Transport demand is projected to increase from 5,970 Km in 2012 to 18,700 in 2047. Thru improvement in the energy sector the consumption Kwh per Km can be brought down to 0.15 from o.21 . 2. Similar numbers for Per capita Commercial space are (demand going up from 0.7 m2/capita to 5.9 m2/capita and efficiencies bring the power requirement from 107 Kwh/ m2 74 Kwh/ m2). Schemes to promote Energy Conservation and Energy Efficiency (i) Standards and Labelling The Bureau initiated the Standards and labeling programme for equipment and appliances in 2006 to provide the consumer an informed choice about the energy saving and thereby the cost saving potential of the relevant marketed product. The scheme is invoked for 19 equipment/appliances, i.e. Room Air Conditioners, Fluorescent Tube Lights, Frost Free Refrigerators, Distribution Transformers, Induction Motors, Direct Cool Refrigerator, electric storage type geyser, ceiling fans, color TVs, agricultural pump sets, LPG stoves, washing machine, laptops, ballast, floor standing ACs, office automation products, diesel generating sets & diesel operating pump sets . The energy efficiency labelling programs under BEE are intended to reduce the energy consumption of appliance without diminishing the services it provides to consumers. Further, the standards and label for refrigerators and air-conditioners have been periodically made more stringent. As a result, the least-efficient products are removed from the market and more efficient products are introduced. The Corporate Average Fuel Consumption Standards (CAFC) for passenger cars has been notified on 30th January, 2014. The ENERGY EFFICIENCY most recent additions to the list of labelled products are Diesel Pump sets & Diesel Generating Set. (ii) Energy Conservation Building Codes (ECBC) The Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) was developed by Govt. of India for new commercial buildings on 27th May 2007. ECBC sets minimum energy standards for new commercial buildings having a connected load of 100kW or contract demand of 120 KVA and above. While the Central Government has powers under the EC Act 2001, the state governments have the flexibility to modify the code to suit local or regional needs and notify them.. In order to promote a market pull for energy efficient buildings, Bureau of Energy Efficiency developed a voluntary Star Rating Programme for buildings which is based on the actual performance of a building, in terms of energy usage in the building over its area expressed in kWh/sq. m/year. Currently, Voluntary Star Labelling programme for 4 categories of buildings (day use office buildings/BPOs/Shopping 43 energetica INDIA · JAN | FEB16
