National Mission on Enhanced Energy Efficiency

Objective of the mission:
National Mission on Enhanced Energy Efficiency (NMEEE) is one of the eight missions which form India’s National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC), formulated in the year 2008.The objective of this mission is to unlock energy efficiency opportunities through market based approach, estimated to be about Rs. 74,000 crores, annual fuel savings in excess of 23 million toe by 2014-15 and cumulative avoided electricity capacity addition of 19,000 MW.

NMEEE is comprising of following 4 components:

1. Perform, Achieve and Trade (PAT): This is a regulatory instrument to reduce specific energy consumption in energy intensive industries, with an associated market based mechanism to enhance the cost effectiveness through certification of excess energy saving which can be traded.

2. Market Transformation for Energy Efficiency (MTEE): This scheme proposes accelerating the shift to energy efficient appliances in designated sectors through innovative measures to make the products more affordable.

3. Energy Efficiency Financing Platform (EEFP): It is for creation of mechanisms which would help finance, demand side management programmes in all sectors by capturing future energy savings and for capacity building of financial institutions and ESCOs/Industries.

4. Framework for Energy Efficient Economic Development (FEEED): It is for development of fiscal instruments to promote energy efficiency.

PAT Scheme

PAT I Cycle:

The Perform Achieve and Trade(PAT) is a market based mechanism to reduce the specific energy consumption in energy intensive industries. This is facilitated through the trading of ESCerts which are issued to those plants who have overachieved their targets. Those plants who were under achievers of their targets are entitled to purchase ESCerts.

The first cycle of PAT was completed in March 2015. Thereafter verification of the performance of DCs with regard to energy savings and based on recommendations made by BEE the Ministry of Power issued 38.24 lakhs(approx) ESCerts to 306 DCs on 16th Feb 2017. 110 DCs have been entitled to purchase 14.23 lakhs(apporx) ESCerts. The DCs have contributed to the success of PAT cycle I and this cycle has witnessed an energy saving of 8.67 million tonne of oil equivalent (Mtoe) against the targeted energy saving of 6.886 Mtoe which is about 30% more than the target. This energy saving is equivalent to 31 million tonnes of CO2 emission reduction and monetary savings of INR 37685 Crores which encouraged investment of INR 24500 Crores.

For the trading of ESCerts, Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) is the Market Regulator and Bureau of Energy Efficiency is the Administrator. POSOCO (Power System Operation Corporation limited) has been appointed as Registry for making DCs as eligible entities for trading of ESCerts and book-keeping of ESCerts. There are two Power Exchanges i.e. IEX and PXIL where trading of ESCerts shall take place. CERC has already approved the Procedure for Transaction of Energy Savings Certificates (ESCerts) on 14th Feb 2017.

PAT II Cycle:

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Energy, Executive Committee on Climate Change under Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) and Group of Secretaries recommended to include DCs annually for accelerated coverage of DCs under PAT. Consequently, PAT scheme is being implemented on a rolling cycle basis where new DCs/sectors will be included every year. In view of this PAT cycle –III has started from 1st April, 2017. PAT Scheme in its third cycle seeks to achieve and overall energy consumption reduction of 1.06 MTOE for which SEC reduction targets have been assigned to 116 Designated Consumers from six sectors viz. Thermal Power Plant, Cement, Aluminum, Pulp & Paper, Iron & Steel and Textile. The energy consumption of these DCs is 35.00 MTOE.

PAT Cycle III:

As PAT scheme is now being implemented on a rolling cycle basis, i.e. new DCs will be notified every year. In the future cycles of the PAT scheme, it is envisaged that new sectors will be included such as Commercial Buildings, Petrochemicals and other sectors as listed in the Schedule of the Energy Conservation Act, 2001.

• Thermal Power Plant • Fertilizers
• Cement • Iron & Steel
• Chlor-Alkali • Textile
• Pulp & Paper • Aluminium
• Petroleum Refinery • Railways
• Electricity Distribution Companies
