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 Map shows the location of each individual MSME cluster by a pin, shaped like an inverted raindrop. Hovering/clicking on the pin enables the visitor to access and explore information on the cluster at deeper levels.
Each pin provides a very brief outline of the cluster concerned (cluster name; category; number of MSMEs). It also offers access to a ‘Cluster Summary’—a one-page overview of the cluster, summarizing information such as cluster level energy consumption, the types of fuels used, leading industry associations, links to the main cluster profile report and to other information/entities relevant to the cluster, and so on.
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 access 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.
