Project Objective:The project aims to develop and promote market environment for introducing energy efficient technologies and enhancing the use of renewable energy technologies in process applications in energy-intensive MSMEs in 5 sectors (brass, ceramics, dairy, foundry and hand tools). The project further envisions scaling up the activities to national level in order to reduce energy usage per unit of product, improve the productivity and competitiveness of units, thereby reducing overall carbon emissions and improving the local environment.
 
Project Overview: Theprojectis designed to increase the uptake of energy efficient and renewable energy technologies in 12 MSME clusters in India under 5 sectors. Presently the project is being executed in 11 clusters as detailed below:
S. No. Sector Cluster
1 Brass Jamnagar, Gujarat
2 Ceramics Khurja, Uttar Pradesh
3 Ceramics Morbi, Gujarat
4 Ceramics Thangadh, Gujarat
5 Dairy Gujarat
6 Dairy Sikkim
7 Foundry Belgaum, Karnataka
8 Foundry Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu
9 Foundry Indore, Madhya Pradesh
10 Hand tools Jalandhar, Punjab
11 Hand tools Nagaur, Rajasthan

 

Project Components: 
• Increased capacity of suppliers of EE/RE product suppliers/ service providers/ finance providers.
• Increasing the level of end-use demand and implementation of EE and RE technologies and practices by MSMEs.
• Scaling up of the project to a national level.
• Strengthening policy, Institutional and decision making frameworks.
 
Desired Project Outcomes: Successful implementation of project would result in fulfilment of the following outcomes:
• Creating a scope for energy savings, by increasing the level of end-use demand and implementation of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies and practices by MSMEs
• Encouraging the use of renewable energy in various industrial applications
• Improving the productivity and competitiveness of units 
• Reducing overall carbon emissions and improving the local environment 
• Increasing the capacity of energy efficiency and renewable energy product suppliers, service providers, finance providers
• Strengthening policy, institutional and decision-making frameworks
• Scaling up of the project to a national level.
