Industry commits to development of super-efficient cooling systems

Jump to the comments

After the successful transformation of the LED bulb market in the country through the UJALA scheme, Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) is now keen to replicate it for air conditioners. Keeping this in mind, TERI and EESL hosted a day long workshop to deliberate on a strategy for super-efficient cooling systems (ACs of rating ISEER >5.2) higher than 5-star rating. The workshop was attended by leading manufacturers, USAID, World Bank, Facility owners, Energy Service Companies and Banks with an aim to leap-frog and accelerate the introduction of super-efficient air conditioners in the Indian market.

As a result of the workshop, leading manufacturers like Voltas, Blue Star, Godrej, Daikin, Whirlpool & Panasonic pledged their support to develop and deploy super-efficient cooling systems in their complexes and facilities. They also endorsed the Global Advanced Cooling Challenge proposed by the Department of Energy, USA. This endorsement indicates that they will define specific commitment actions that will be featured on the AC Challenge website and will track these commitments through the duration of the AC Challenge.

Fruitful discussions on super-efficient cooling systems were conducted, chaired by Dr. Ajay Mathur, Director General, TERI and Mr. Saurabh Kumar, Managing Director, Energy Efficiency Services Limited.

The increasing demand for air conditioners poses a challenge to electricity grids, which are already struggling to satisfy existing demand. As per a recent study by International Energy Agency (IEA), the penetration of ACs will rise from 5% to 70% by 2040. Also, ownership of appliances in domestic households in the same period is likely to increase from 14% to 44%. This would require additional capacity of 165 GW.

Speaking at the meet, Shri Saurabh Kumar, Managing Director, EESL said, “It is the vision of our Hon’ble Prime Minister to empower consumers with 24x7 power and energy efficient appliances to reduce consumption and mitigate climate change. We all agree that ACs are the primary reason for high peak demand. Super-efficient ACs need to be introduced which can reduce consumer energy bills and energy demand by 30%. Super-efficient air conditioners are the future and I urge the industry and corporates to come forward and take up the challenge for a bright and energy efficient future.”

Till date, EESL, a company under the Ministry of Power has saved 2,528 crore kWh annually through their flagship programmes UJALA and Street Lighting National Programme. They have successfully distributed close to 20 crore LED bulbs and have retrofitted over 15 lakh LED street lights across India. EESL will launch their Super-Efficient AC programme in the coming months, under which inverter ACs of rating ISEER >5.2 (higher than 5-star rating) will be made available to public at low prices.

Extending the UJALA programme, EESL now offers a unique proposition for Energy Service Companies who execute energy efficiency projects in facilities and complexes. ESCOs can now avail LED bulbs, tubelights and fans at a reasonable price for their projects.
