Enigin News - Indian State Departments face Mandatory Energy Audits
THE INDIAN State of Madhya Pradesh is set to carry out mandatory energy audits and energy efficiency measures across all state government, semi-government, corporation and board offices.
A 10 percent increase is predicted in Indian energy bills in the near future, leading to concerns over energy wastage across the states facilities.
The measures are being taken to improve energy efficiency to keep energy costs the same or even lower than this years bills. The directions are being issued to all departments by the Indian government's New and Renewable Energy Department.
All state departments have been directed to have an energy audit of their buildings and to implement an action plan for energy efficiency. The energy audit has been made mandatory for most.
After an energy audit and certification, the state departmental heads will need to implement the suggestions generated by the audit report. In an attempt to meet the target of lowering energy costs energy-efficient lighting systems, fixtures and energy efficient technology is to be installed.
Low or no-cost energy efficiencies are required to be implemented within a month, while those requiring higher expenditure, such as upgrading buildings and equipment, need to be implemented within three months.
