The Power and New & Renewable Energy Minister RK Singh has launched ‘SAATHEE’ (State-wise Actions on Annual Targets and Headways on Energy Efficiency) – a portal for State Designated Agency for state level activities.

Power Ministry-backed Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) has developed a Management Information System (MIS) portal ‘SAATHEE’ to facilitate real-time monitoring of the progress of implementation of various energy conservation endeavours at state level.

The portal was launched during the 30th National Energy Conservation Awards (NECA) function organised by the Ministry of Power in association with BEE.

During the event, the awards were presented to the winners from different industries and sector establishments on Energy Efficiency.

Besides, the Standards and Labelling Programme for Air Compressors and Ultra High Definition (UHD) TV was also launched on voluntary basis and the energy consumption standards will be effective from January 01, 2021.This initiative is expected to save around 8.41 Billion Units of electricity for Air Compressors and 9.75 Billion Units for UHD TV till 2030.

While speaking on the occasion, RK Singh stated that, “Energy Efficiency is not only good for the world but also for companies and industries themselves. Our country has one of the lowest per capita emission and per capita energy consumption. Despite this the country has made ambitious commitments to meet the global challenge posed by climate change. Our country has target to reduce the emission intensity to 33-35% by 2030 compared to 2005 level, as part of commitments made during COP 21.”

While emphasising the importance of energy efficiency the Minister highlighted the Perform, Achieve and Trade (PAT) scheme being implemented by BEE, as a ‘flag bearer’, as the scheme has not only demonstrated its promise in the country but also has found interest among many other countries.

He specifically mentioned the impact of PAT Cycle II achieved emission reduction of 61 million ton of CO2.

RK Singh desired that a system of ranking of states can be developed on the basis of Energy Efficiency and resource conservation. He also added that the states can prepare broad commitments to meet climate goals in-line with the NDCs. In conclusion he called up-on to strive for being energy efficient on individual and corporate level without expecting from others.

The NECA event witnessed award presentations to 57 units from various sectors. This year 409 units have participated in NECA 2020 and collectively achieved saving of 3,007 Million units and substantial thermal energy savings resulting in Rs 1,503 crore.
