Impact Assessment Report of Energy Conservation Activities in Punjab 

Punjab Energy Development Agency (PEDA) assigned task of “Preparation of report on Impact of Energy Conservation Activities in the State of Punjab during F.Y. 2013-14” to PSCST. The project involved preparation of report after collecting data from Government Departments, R&D Institutes, Industries, Designated Consumers, Accredited Energy Auditors, Hospitals, Hotels and Malls regarding the energy conservation activities carried out by them during the said financial year. 

Council collected the energy conservation data on a prescribed performa from the stakeholders, where revealed that a total energy saving of 194.55 million units (MUs) have been achieved by adopting energy conservation measures. Further, this achievement of energy saving has resulted in the avoided generation capacity of 33.43 MW on the grid side. The energy auditing agencies have assessed energy saving potential of 47 MUs in MSMEs and Institutions, however, the implementation of energy conservation measures recommended by these agencies are under process.

Debate Competition on “Energy Efficiency & Conservation” for ITI, Diploma Engineering and Engineering Colleges Students

Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), Ministry of Power, has launched the National Awareness Campaign to promote energy conservation in the country.
