APTMA in association with the National Productivity Organization has launched the second phase of energy audit of textile mills under the energy conservation program for the textile industry.

Akber Sheikh, Chairman All Pakistan Textile Mills Association, Punjab speaking on the occasion has said that there was potential for saving 10- 15% of energy in the textile industry by minimizing wastages and realizing efficiency of operations. The current level of energy consumption by the textile industry is around 1500MW.

Mr. Akber Sheikh spoke on behalf of textile mills participating in the “Audit for Energy Conservation” The energy audits that are scheduled to commence next week were formally launched a function today. In this phase of the audit for energy conservation, 20 member mills are participating.

Akber Sheikh stated that APTMA and NPO had been partners in the conduct of energy audit for various sub sectors of the textile industry. In the initial phase, APTMA in association with NPO was also engaged in the capacity development that resulted in a pool of trained manpower capable to undertake energy audits independent of advice and expertise from abroad. For energy audits being initiated now, APTMA had financed the necessary equipment and gadgetry that is required for it, he added.

Akber Sheikh said that energy audits would serve the twin purpose of bringing the gap between energy supply and demand closer as well as eliminating energy wastage leading to conservation, at the same time achieving competitiveness in the wake of rising energy costs

Malik Javed Awan, Chief of NPO thanked APTMA for its cooperation in the conduct of energy audits for conservation of energy. He said that efficient use of energy made possible by the audits brought about individual as well as collective benefits. Mr. Awan stressed on the need for carrying out energy audits on a large scale with a broad-based sweep.

Bharadwaj, Project Officer of the Asian Productivity Organization (APO) speaking on behalf of its Chief appreciated NPO/APTMA efforts. He apprised of other options under APO/NPO including observation study missions to follow best practices, model industry programme for energy conservation and technical expert services program for the industry in Pakistan.
