The energy efficiency projects and activities discussed in the consultation meet can be a part of State Action Plan of Climate Change, wherein, we will partner with several departments and ministries in Uttar Pradesh to make the state futuristic, sustainable and more energy efficient in the days to come. We will also leverage the schemes of other states and explore their synergies with our initiatives at EESL.”
 
Ashish Tiwari, Secretary, Department of Environment, Forest and Climate Change reiterated the resolve to achieve the target carbon emission reduction of one billion tonnes by 2030, through adopting the vision of PanchAmrit.
