UNIDO-GEF PROJECT ON PROMOTING ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND RENEWABLE ENERGY IN SELECTED MSME CLUSTERS IN INDIA

Duration 2011-16

People and key organizations

GEF, UNIDO, BEE, Ministry of MSME (MoMSME), Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE)

Summary

UNIDO with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) initiated this project in September 2011, in collaboration with BEE, Ministry of MSME (MoMSME) and Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE). The project focus on development and promotion of a market environment for introducing energy efficiency (EE) and enhanced use of renewable energy (RE) technologies for process applications in 12 selected MSME clusters under five energy intensive MSME sub-sectors. These clusters have been chosen based on the total energy consumption as well as the energy intensity levels. The total energy consumption of these 12 clusters based on data collated by TERI was stimated at about 1.44 million tonnes of oil equivalent (Mtoe).

The project addressed a few important barriers such as lack of technological solutions and capacities at cluster levels and the paucity of reliable data at policy levels. The broad goals of this 5-year project included the following:

  • Increased capacity of suppliers of EE/RE products/ service providers/financing institutions
  • Increasing the levels of end-use demand and implementation of EE and RE technologies and practices by MSMEs
  • Scaling up of the project to national level
  • Strengthening policy, institutional and decision-making frameworks
