Tata Motors joins hands with EESL for energy saving measures

Automobile manufacturers Tata Motors Limited has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Energy Efficiencies Services Limited (EESL) to achieve energy saving and resource conservation by implementing various energy efficiency initiatives across the company’s manufacturing facilities in India.
The energy efficiency programme will be implemented in Tata Motors’ manufacturing plants located at Pantnagar (Uttarakhand), Lucknow & Pune in the first phase, and will be later extended to other facilities, a press release from the company said.
EESL will undertake the complete upfront investment for the energy efficiency programme, with zero investment from Tata Motors. The overall implementation period for the programme will be two years, it said.
Mr Saurabh Kumar, MD, EESL, said, “Indian businesses are increasingly adopting energy efficiency measures and are significantly contributing to the efforts of the Government. This MoU is big step towards companies proactively adopting such simple yet effective measures. We are proud to partner with Tata Motors and enable them to become efficient in their energy use across facilities. I am sure we will see more and more industries come forward the similar manner to be benefited by higher efficiency in their facilities and at the same time contribute to the country’s journey towards being a low carbon economy. .
Mr. Guenter Butschek, CEO & MD, Tata Motors Ltd. said, “Tata Motors has always been at the forefront of energy conservation initiatives. By executing innovative and sustainable solutions such as re-cycling of treated effluents, hazardous waste management and rainwater harvesting, Tata Motors has optimized its operations and ensured optimum resource utilization. Collaborating with EESL is a step further in this direction. By implementing energy efficient solutions, we are accelerating our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint in the form of lower greenhouse gas emissions, towards a cleaner future.”
The MoU covers such areas as diagnostic studies & pilot projects; energy audits for selected plant facilities to identify avenues for energy saving in electrical and thermal utilities; water audits to identify areas/means to reduce specific water consumption; pilot studies on cross-cutting technologies like tri-generation or VAM system for existing chiller based AC installation; waste heat recovery system; and fuel switching: electrical to gas and conventional to non-conventional.
Other highlights include implementation of energy efficiency projects through innovative financial models; installation/distribution of LED lights and energy efficient appliances (fans and/or air-conditioners) across the facilities of TML, and supply-chain entities; installation of energy efficient motors (IE3 type) in place of conventional motors; and installation of smart meters.
