Energy Efficiency

 

Energy efficiency provides a powerful and cost-effective mechanism to achieve a sustainable energy future. Improvements in energy efficiency can reduce the need for investment in energy infrastructure, cut fuel costs, increase competitiveness and improve consumer welfare. Environmental benefits can also be achieved by the reduction of greenhouse gases emissions. Energy security can also benefit from improved energy efficiency by decreasing the reliance on imported fossil fuels.

The mission of the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) in India is to 'institutionalize' energy efficiency services, enable delivery mechanisms and provide leadership to energy efficiency in all industrial sectors in the country. The primary objective is to reduce energy intensity in the economy.

Energy efficiency has proven to be a cost-effective strategy for building economies without necessarily growing energy consumption.

It offers a solution to reduce demand while continuing to pursue the goals of economic and environmental sustainability and provides opportunity to free up capital for other social and economical development needs.
