Electrification of industrial processes for achieving low carbon growth
This issue focuses on the urgent need for decarbonizing the industry sector, describes the significant progress being made in ‘greening’ grid electricity in India, and summarizes studies conducted by TERI in five energy intensive MSME clusters under a project supported by SSEF, to assess the feasibility of replacing fossil-fuel-based technologies with electrical and RE-based options. It also summarizes the points made during an awareness workshop on electrification of industrial processes, organized by SSEF and TERI.
This issue underlines that there is an opportunity for Indian MSMEs to adopt low-cost/no-cost measures that can slash production costs and increase their profitability, even in the midst of the crisis precipitated by the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. It highlights best operating practices (BOPs) as the solution, and presents a number of case studies on BOP to showcase the huge monetary benefits that BOPs bring at little or no investment.
This issue has as its theme a pioneering energy conservation (EC) manual that has been prepared by TERI at the behest of BEE for the Indian MSME sector, titled ‘Energy Conservation Guidelines for MSME Sector’. The manual provides MSME entrepreneurs with knowledge and guidelines that they can use to adopt EC measures including best operating practices (BOP) in various process areas, and thereby reduce energy consumption and energy costs.
National Conclave on Enhancing Energy Efficiency in MSME sector
This issue presents the highlights of the ‘National Conclave on Enhancing Energy Efficiency in MSME Sector’ organized by BEE in New Delhi during 23–24 September 2019. A number of knowledge resources and initiatives for promoting EE among MSMEs were launched during the Conclave, including a manual prepared by BEE on ‘Energy Conservation Guidelines for MSME Sector’; and a knowledge portal titled Simplified Digital Hands-on Information on Energy Efficiency in MSMEs (SIDHIEE) developed by BEE.
This issue focuses on the huge potential for MSMEs to reduce their energy consumption and save energy costs by switching over from their existing fossil fuel-based technologies to electricity-based options. It outlines the SSEF–TERI project under which feasibility studies were undertaken to identify possible electrification options in select energy intensive MSME sub-sectors/clusters across the country. It also summarizes salient points from a Consultation Workshop held in July 2019 to share the project experiences.
This issue focuses on Demand Side Management (DSM), and presents the highlights of DSM studies undertaken by TERI in 11 DISCOMs with specific focus on the energy saving opportunities identified for MSME consumers. It also summarizes the DSM Action Plan prepared by TERI for JUSCO S-K, a distribution utility in Jharkhand; and the DSM study undertaken by TERI in MESCOM, a distribution utility in Karnataka, with support from MacArthur Foundation.
Boosting MSME business in Jharkhand by promoting energy efficiency and green energy generation: a UNDP–GEF project
This issue outlines the GEF-funded project titled ‘Market Transformation and Removal of Barriers for Effective Implementation of the State-Level Climate Change Action Plans’ implemented by UNDP in Jharkhand in partnership with Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change. It also summarizes the results of energy audits on cold storage units, and a case study on a solar-powered micro cold storage unit set up in partnership with JREDA and a local farmer producer company, AVFPC.
Promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy in selected MSME clusters: a GEF–UNIDO–BEE project
This issue has, as its focus, the GEF-funded national project being executed by UNIDO in collaboration with BEE titled ‘Promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy in selected micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) clusters in India’ and covering five industrial sub-sectors: brass, ceramics, dairy, foundry, and hand tools. It also presents a few case studies from the Thangadh ceramic cluster on implementation of EETs/RETs.
Skilling shop fl oor technicians to catalyse energy efficiency in Faridabad cluster
This issue focuses on an innovative strategy to promote energy efficiency sustainably and on a wide scale across industrial clusters, through strengthening the technical capacities of shop floor level personnel in train-the-trainer (TOT) mode. It describes such an initiative implemented by TERI in the Faridabad engineering cluster, with the support of Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation (SSEF) and in close partnership with the local industry association, IamSMEofIndia.
‘Deep dive’ approach for cluster-wide energy efficiency—a case study in Rajkot engineering cluster
This issue focuses on an innovative strategy to promote energy efficient technologies on a large scale, known as ‘saturation’ or ‘deep dive’ approach. It explains the key features of the deep dive approach, contrasting it with the elements that constitute the approach known as research, development, demonstration and dissemination (RDD&D). As example, the article summarizes the deep dive initiative undertaken by the TERI–SDC partnership project in Rajkot foundry cluster during 2015–17.
TERI–SDC Partnership Project: a path-breaking initiative in MSME sector
This issue summarizes the 25-year-long TERI–SDC partnership project in India’s MSME sector, which ended in December 2017. It describes how, through an innovative multi-stakeholder intervention model that has come to be known as Research, Development, Demonstration and Dissemination (RDD&D), the project has successfully introduced clean, energy efficient technological solutions in select energy intensive MSME sub-sectors and clusters, and built local-level capacities to support replications.
Second National Summit on Energy Efficiency in MSMEs
This issue carries a summary of the Second National Summit on Energy Efficiency in MSMEs that was held during 31st October –1st November 2017. The two-day event, organized by BEE and TERI with the support of the Embassy of Switzerland in India, UNIDO and the Ministry of MSME, included participants from MSME clusters across the country, government departments, bilateral and multilateral agencies, academia, banks, consultancies, and R&D establishments.
Thanks We will get back to you soon.
