In order to complement the efforts to gather updated energy data on MSME clusters, Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation (SSEF) provided support to TERI during 2015-16 to prepare cluster profile reports on 10 energy intensive MSME clusters in the states of Haryana, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu (see table).

The project had the following components.

  • Short-listing of 10 new energy-intensive clusters
  • Organizing cluster-level workshops jointly with the local industry associations, to bring together various stakeholders including MSME entrepreneurs, SDAs, MSME-DIs, academic institutions and financial agencies on a common platform
  • Energy data collection through interactions with the major stakeholders
  • Analyses of the energy and technology-related data, broad identification of energy efficient options and preparation of cluster profile reports
  • Publication of the cluster profile reports and widespread dissemination among cluster and national-level stakeholders
