With the support of the Ministry of Power, the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) has started putting in to action its energy efficiency program in the nation.

Having selected 35 small and medium enterprise (SME) groups, BEE aims at encouraging adoption of energy efficient technologies and practices via sharing of knowledge, capacity building and novel financial mechanisms.

Of the 35 groups, Surat (textiles), Morbi (ceramics), Ahmedabad (chemicals), Jamnagar (brass), Vapi (dyes and chemicals) and dairy groups are located in Gujarat.

An information program pertaining to aforesaid program by BEE was also organised at the Bombay Blue Hall, Surat, with the presence of Minister of State for Power, Bharatsinh Solanki.

Zenith Energy Services Pvt Ltd will be running this program for BEE, which will aid in generating awareness amongst entrepreneurs of textile groups towards energy efficient technologies.

The double-aim of the BEE-SME project is to profit the domestic industry by aiding it to reduce their energy bills and improve their goods quality, thereby helping them be more competent in the Indian and global markets, informed Solanki.

As per the Director General of BEE, Dr Ajoy Mathur, the key areas spotted are natural gas oriented cogeneration to accomplish the low priced power requirement and to process hot water via waste heat recovery, micro turbine. The waste heat recovery from different processes helps lessen the input energy, manufacturing cost, and the like.

Centre for textile firms, Surat, especially known for synthetic sarees and dress materials, comprises of about 400 firms for dyeing of synthetic and cotton fabric.

This cluster on a yearly basis consumes around 726 GWh of power. The yearly gas consumption is of about 315 million SCM and it makes of use of 2.3 million tons of coal, thereby, summing for approximately 1.2 million tons of oil which is equal to using energy. About 13 percent of the net power consumed by this cluster is saved.
