About MSME Energy Map
The MSME Energy Map is a dynamic tool that provides insights into energy intensive MSME clusters across the country, on which detailed energy related information and data are available. It allows access to useful information on the hosted MSME clusters at a number of levels. The Map was conceptualized and developed under the EESE partnership between SDC and TERI.
- The location of each individual MSME cluster is shown on the Map by a 'place marker', shaped like an inverted raindrop. By hovering/clicking on the place marker, the visitor can access and explore information on each MSME cluster at deeper levels.
- Each place marker provides a very brief outline of the cluster concerned (cluster name; category; number of MSMEs). It also offers access to a one-page overview of the cluster, summarizing information such as cluster level energy consumption, the types of fuels used, leading industry associations at cluster level, and so on. Hyperlinks are provided to enable the visitors to access the main cluster profile report, and wherever possible, to navigate directly to other information/entities relevant to the cluster.
- The Map can also be explored with an easy-to-use search tool, based on search criteria such as industrial sub-sector; state; and energy consumption (low/medium/high). For instance, the search tool can be used to depict, for a specific industrial sub-sector, the locations of (hosted) MSME clusters under that sub-sector, as well as to provide access to information on each of the clusters. This gives a holistic view of the sub-sector concerned, highlighting contrasts as well as common aspects among clusters and offering potential for comparative studies, cross-learning, and so on.
