Andhra Pradesh plans to save 1,700 MU power per year

Andhra Pradesh is looking to capitalise on the opportunity of saving 1,700 million units (MU) of energy worth around Rs 1,000 crore per year, compared to the total estimated scope of 17,085 MU out of the total energy demand of 66,530 MU as estimated by discoms for FY 2022-23.

To commemorate National Energy Conservation Week-2021, the Andhra Pradesh state energy conservation mission held an awareness programme in Vijayawada.

APSECM CEO Chandrasekhara Reddy, addressing at the meeting, informed that India's primary energy demand would rise to around 1500 Mtoe by 2030, up from 770 Mtoe in 2012.

Under the supervision of APSECM, the state implemented the Perform, Achieve, and Trade (PAT) scheme in 30 energy-intensive industries for three years, achieving PAT compliance with 0.295 Mtoe of energy savings 3430 MU worth around Rs 2,185 crore, which was officially declared by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) under the Ministry of Power.

According to the CEO, saving around 10% of total potentiality per year should not be difficult. The state has already demonstrated that this can be done by saving 3,430 MU worth Rs 2,185 crore in 30 industries over three years through the PAT scheme.

The CEO told the media that by implementing various energy efficiency measures such as the UJALA scheme, PAT, and LED street lighting, AP has saved 5,600 MU of energy worth Rs 3,800 crore so far. Aside from that, the state of Andhra Pradesh saved around Rs 2,500 crore by purchasing electricity on the spot market at low prices.

According to a report submitted to the AP government by the Administrative Staff College of India, there is a huge potential to save 888 MU of energy worth Rs 565 crore in government buildings alone, from the Mandal level up, by implementing energy efficiency measures.
