State-owned Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with MECON to support the implementation of various energy efficiency and resources conservation measures in the steel and associated mining industry.

MECON Ltd is a Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) under the Ministry of Steel of the Government of India.

Under this partnership, both the organisations will collaboratively work towards the implementation of solutions related to energy efficiency, clean energy, and other ancillary services in steel and mining industry.

During the occasion, S P Garnaik, Executive Director (Lighting), EESL, said “it has become vital to implement energy efficiency solutions across different sectors in order to move towards a cleaner and greener future. This partnership with MECON is a big step towards tapping the immense potential for energy efficiency especially in the steel & mining industries. Our expertise in handling the world’s largest energy efficiency portfolio and technical support from MECON will enable considerable energy savings and environmental benefits.”

Through this partnership, the two entities aimed to jointly address solutions such as retrofitting LED lights, deployment of energy efficient motors (IE3 type) in place of conventional motors and EV transportation with necessary charging infrastructure in the steel Industry. They will also collaboratively work towards the implementation of clean energy initiatives and retrofits, along with products like Super-Efficient AC systems, technology to improve indoor-air quality, safety and efficiency in the buildings/facilities across the various sectors including steel industries.

Commenting on the partnership, R H Juneja, Director (Finance), MECON, said, “we welcome the collaboration with EESL, as their unique and vast expertise in energy efficiency and clean energy and MECON’s credible presence and vast experience in Iron & Steel sector will help in developing effective and energy saving projects. We are happy to be part of this Energy Efficiency revolution and helping India achieve its sustainability goals.”

Hoping for a longer partnership, S. K. Verma, Director (Commercial), MECON emphasized that this MoU will go a long way in implementing various energy efficiency measures in energy intensive Iron & Steel industry while synergising the strength & expertise of both the companies.

As per the MoU, both EESL and MECON would explore options of implementation of energy saving opportunities and implement pilot studies on cross-cutting technologies especially in iron, steel and mining industries.

Besides, they will also roll out technical training to plant executives on various topics pertaining to Energy Management, Maintenance Management, Water Management and Safety Engineering.
