A Study of Energy Efficiency in the Iron and Steel Industry
December 20, 2013
The National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) seeks to promote sustainable development through increased use of clean technologies. NAPCC has a mission specifically dedicated to Energy Efficiency (EE) – National Mission on Enhanced Energy Efficiency (NMEEE). Perform, Achieve and Trade (PAT), one of the flagship programmes under NMEEE, was launched and implemented by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) to issue energy efficiency norms to energy-intensive manufacturing units. The objective of this study has been to model the EE of the Indian iron and steel industry, in the context of the diversity and the challenges in operating conditions, in order to provide analysis and insights for the successful implementation of PAT.
