During the 14th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) meeting in Goa, Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), hosted an event with the theme “Accelerating India’s Net Zero Transition through Energy Efficiency, Sustainable Cooling & Mobility”.
At this event, 15 memorandums of understanding (MoUs) were exchanged, demonstrating EESL’s commitment to investigating solutions for decarbonisation, energy access, energy efficiency programmes and clean cooking.
Furthermore, EESL presented its new energy efficiency strategy and reaffirmed its commitment to the decarbonisation by signing a strategic MoU with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), India. A few of the key subjects covered by this cooperation include super-efficient cooling and heating, demand flexibility, integrated energy efficiency services, electric mobility, utility energy management and regional development in south Asia.
Another substantial MoU was signed with IIT Madras with the intention of assisting MSMEs to achieve high productivity, cost savings and to help them commercialise innovations and give them a presence in markets.
Furthermore, the Modern Energy Cooking Service (MECS) programme, a cooperation between EESL and Loughborough University in the UK valued at Rs 500 million intends to promote and implement electric cooking on a broad scale for residential consumers in India.
In addition, as a part of Rs 1.1 billion alliance with the Andhra Pradesh State Housing Company Limited (APSHCL), EESL will offer beneficiaries living in Jagananna Colonies with appliances that are energy-efficient as part of the Navaratnalu Pedalandariki Illu (NPI) programme. As a part of the programme, 300,000 BLDC ceiling fans, 600,000 LED bulbs and 300,000 LED tubelights would be distributed.
By delivering rechargeable inverter lamps and induction cooktops, the partnership with the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC), Leh, valued at Rs 500 million aims to solve the electricity and cooking needs in off-the-grid parts of Leh.
