Coal Sector’s Stride Into Energy Efficiency, Steps Towards Carbon Neutrality

Coal/Lignite PSUs further Step Up Energy Efficiency Measures

India is committed to reduce Emissions Intensity of its GDP by 45 per cent by 2030 as per the updated NDC. In alignment of this, Coal Sector is at the forefront in leading energy conservation and efficiency measures recognizing the paramount importance of judicious energy resource utilization. The significance of this endeavour is that, generally, saving one unit of energy at the consumption level can potentially reduce the need for fresh capacity creation by 2 to 2.5 times.
