Tata Motors joins hands with Energy Efficiencies Services Limited for energy saving measures.

Tata Motors Limited has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Energy Efficiencies Services Limited (EESL) to achieve energy saving and resource conservation by implementing various energy efficiency initiatives across the company’s manufacturing facilities in India.

The energy efficiency programme will be implemented in Tata Motors’ manufacturing plants located at Pantnagar (Uttarakhand), Lucknow & Pune in the first phase, and will be later extended to other facilities. EESL will undertake the complete upfront investment for the energy efficiency programme, with zero investment from Tata Motors. The overall implementation period for the programme will be two years.
