Demand Side Management: Small Efforts, Big Gains
Description: DSM is a win–win option. By reducing power demand during peak hours, it helps DISCOMs avoid the financial losses associated with purchasing power at high costs. By enabling consumers to adopt energy efficient technologies it reduces their electricity bills. DSM helps in avoiding additional GHG emissions at the national level. This 5 minute film succinctly captures various options to save power among MSME customers of Tata Power. The project was undertaken by TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute) with support from the MacArthur Foundation.
Ring the changes
Description: Clouds of smoke & coal ash, this was Firozabad’s air a few years ago. A city that produces 50 million bangles each day, and gives livelihood to over 150,000 people, was completely dependent on low efficiency coal furnaces. Following the Supreme Court verdict in the famous Taj Trapezium case, the Firozabad glass industry came under pressure to switch from coal to natural gas as fuel.
In 1994, SDC joined hands with TERI to develop and demonstrate a clean & energy-efficient technology for the small-scale glass industry of Firozabad. This film narrates the story of every stakeholder that helped to clear Firozabad’s air.
Best Operating Practices in Cupola Melting
Description: This 12-minute film succinctly tries to capture the best operating practices in cupola melting. TERI with support of SDC (Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation) has demonstrated and disseminated the divided blast cupola (DBC) for small-scale foundry units in India. For efficient operation of the DBC, best operating practices must be followed. The film, which has been prepared with support of REEEP, highlights some of the best operating practices that must be followed by foundry operators and supervisors to achieve optimal results.Watch Now
The Brick Story
Description: We all know that summers in India are bad. But imagine living next to an oven from January- July. Imagine if your work involved feeding this oven throughout the grueling months of April to June. There will be no official leaves and the pay just about Rs 3000 a month. That's a slice from the life that a fireman leads while working on a brick kiln in north India. After agriculture, the brick industry is among the largest employer of manpower in India and in terms of energy -- the third biggest consumer of coal. In 1994, The Energy and Resources Institute, with the support of Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) began an intervention in the Brick industry. A multi-layered story unfolded. The film captures some of that journey.Watch Now
National Summit on Energy Efficiency in MSMEs
July 2012, New Delhi:
Description: The National Summit on Energy Efficiency in MSMEs was organized under the aegis of SAMEEEKSHA during 30—31 July 2012 in New Delhi. The two-day Summit drew more than 200 participants who represented 40 cluster-level industry associations from various MSME sub-sectors across India including brick, ceramics, chemicals, dairy, engineering, foundry, metallurgy, rice mills, tea, and textiles; 30 government departments; 16 bilateral/ multilateral agencies; 7 financial institutions; 9 academic institutions; and 20 energy consulting firms. The discussion at the Summit focused on one key question: How can we enable MSMEs to become more energy efficient? To answer this, the participants brainstormed and contributed in discussions related to different sectorial issues of policy, technology and finance in order to define directions for further course of action in the MSME sector.
Accelerating collective action for Indian foundry industry:
A TERI-SDC joint initiative:
Description: This 10 minute film succinctly captures a decade of work by TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute) and SDC (Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation) among the small scale foundry units in india. The film gives an overview of how it all started, demonstration of cleaner technologies, and spread of these these technologies to other clusters within India. It also highlights the efforts to integrate social issues related to well-being of workforce and to strengthen knowledge-sharing platforms.
Changing the convention
Introducing newer concepts in Firozabad glass industry:
A TERI-SDC joint initiative:
Description: This 10-minute film succinctly captures a decade of work by TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute) and SDC (Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation) among the small scale units located in the glass industry cluster at Firozabad(Uttar Pradesh), India. The film gives a background of the cluster and explains the benefits of adoption of cleaner technological solutions that were demonstrated and disseminated in the cluster. It also touches upon the recent efforts initiated under the project to form co-operatives of workers in some of the downstream glass, bangle finishing operations.
Energy efficiency improvements among industries in Bhutan
Description: This 3-minute film was produced by Bhutan Broadcasting Service (BBS), for their weekly television news program 'Bhutan this Week'. The film highlights the energy efficiency improvement potential among calcium carbide and ferro silicon industries in Bhutan and is based on the studies undertaken there by TERI with support from UNEP in 2016. The film emphasis that a substantial amount of energy input to the electric furnaces used in these industries is lost (wasted) through the flue gases which are emitted from the stack. The 'waste heat' in these industries can be gainfully utilised for power generation and drying of the raw materials leading to substantial energy savings and reduced emissions of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas.Watch Now
Energy Efficient technology for Ludhiana Forging cluster
BEE’s intervention under BEE-SME program:
Description: Under the BEE-SME program, BEE is intervening in five clusters for demonstration of energy efficient technologies. Ludhiana is among the clusters shortlisted for intervention. In and around Ludhiana, more than 1500 Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) forging units are operating, manufacturing products suitable for automotive, industrial and agricultural sector. One of the technologies identified to enhance energy efficiency of forging units in the cluster is replacement of conventional furnace with induction heating. The video film highlights the benefits of adopting the identified technology.
