The Small and Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA) on Textile sector, teamed up with All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) to develop and execute, Energy Management System (EnMs), which has helped in dropping the energy expenses of certain mills by 15 percent.

In the first phase, the scheme was executed in 25 APTMA member mills in Lahore, Sheikhupura, Faisalabad, Multan and Karachi, informed APTMA spokesperson, who further added that, the execution process was aptly concluded and was giving satisfactory outcomes.

The EnMs have been provided with an in-built Energy Data Monitoring System as an indispensable part, meant to substantiate the sustainability of the scheme, he stated.

With the execution of EnMs, the prospective savings in the 12 chosen textile mills were seen at 9211 TOE (Tons of Oil Equivalent), which is as good as generation capacity of 12.4 MW and 172 million PKR.

The savings that the concerned mills have realized by now comes to 1791 TOE which is on par with the generation capacity of 2.4 MW and 39 million PKR, he stated.
