Energy Efficiency Report & Tool
In line with the Nation Mission for Enhanced Energy Efficiency under the National Action Plan on Climate Change, MAIT and Shakti Foundation had carried out a research on the savings possible by using energy efficient IT hardware in government departments.
It was estimated that by using energy efficient IT hardware (as per the latest BEE standards) in government departments, it is possible to achieve cumulative energy savings of 1.55-2.85 billion KWh equivalent to CO2 emission reductions of 1.5-2.7 billion tones by FY19. The figures amount to nearly INR 700 – 1300 crore of savings to the exchequer by FY19.
Realizing the need of making consumer and government aware about the energy efficient products, a tool to compare energy consumption of all the IT hardware available in the market has also been developed. The tool and the report is available for download free of cost.
