So far, the SPC APTMA has implemented Energy Management System (EnMS) in more than 35 textile units resulting in energy savings of 10 MW equivalent to monetary savings of PKR 391 million. 
 
The APTMA management highlighted that ongoing energy crisis in the country and achievement of member mills through energy conservation and energy efficiency improvement initiatives.  It was pointed out that energy is the major cost accounting for 40 % in total operational cost so it is imperative to conserve 1 MW of electricity rather than to generate it.
