Municipal DSM

Printer-friendly version


The Municipality Demand Side Management (Mu-DSM) scheme of BEE was initiated during XI plan. BEE has Identified the immense energy saving potential in municipal sector. The basic objective of the project was to improve the overall energy efficiency of the ULBs, which could lead to substantial savings in the electricity consumption, thereby resulting in cost reduction/savings for the ULBs. The major achievements in the XI plan period are as follows.

  • Situational survey was conducted in 175 ULBs across the country.

  • In 134 ULBs, Bankable DPRs were prepared after taking up Investment Grade Energy Audit (IGEA). The overall potential saving of 120 MW is estimated as part of avoided generation capacity through energy efficiency projects in 134 ULBs.

  • MuDSM web portal was developed under the programme. The portal consists of DPRs and knowledge materials developed under the programme.

Implementation of the project at the ground level is highly necessary which will create a market transformation among technology provider, implementing partners, financial institutions etc.  In view of these facts, it is proposed that implementation of demo projects in 15 ULBs will be undertaken on pilot basis during XII plan. In addition, technical support will be provided to the ULBs by appointing technical experts to selected ULBs.
