Survey of commercial buildings as Designated Consumers
Energy Efficiency in Buildings has tremendous potential in the Indian context. It is estimated that more than 25% of electricity is consumed in houses, office buildings, shops and malls. This proposition may increase when in the next 3-4 years the rural India is electrified under the Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojna. It needs to be noted that at this point of time, 56% of rural India is still not covered by electricity infrastructure and the remaining 44% hardly get electricity for, on an average, 50% of the time.
PEDA got commissioned the Report on the Survey of Commercial Buildings as Designated Consumers in the state of Punjab in accordance with the EC Act 2001.
