1. Demand Side Management (DSM)

  1. DSM work in Uttar Pradesh
  2. Agriculture DSM
  3. Municipal DSM
  4. Domestic Efficient Lighting Program

(i) Agriculture DSM

The objective of the program is to create appropriate framework for market based interventions in the agriculture pumping sector and carried out pump-set efficiency upgrdation projects through Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode.

At the outset of XII five year plan, the objective is to reduce the energy intensity of agriculture pumping sector by carrying out efficiency up gradation of agricultural pump. The approach for meeting the targets would be to build up the process of acceleration of sustainable energy efficiency in the XII plan through; widespread replication through regulatory mechanism which will be coupled with the financial support provided by the GoI for bridging the EEPS pump sets higher cost, capacity building of all stakeholders, few demonstration projects in rural drinking water pumping systems and strategic approach for dissemination of results.

(ii) Municipal DSM

The Municipality Demand Side Management (Mu-DSM) scheme of BEE was initiated during XI plan. BEE has identified the immense energy saving potential in municipal sector. The basic objective of the project was to improve the overall energy efficiency of the ULBs, which could lead to substantial savings in the electricity consumption, thereby resulting in cost reduction/savings for the ULBs.

(iii) DELP- LED distribution under DELP scheme

The Government of Uttar Pradesh (GoUP) with Government of India (GoI)in association with Energy Efficiency Services (EESL) has launched Domestic Efficient Lighting Program across the state of Uttar Pradesh.

Domestic Efficient Lighting Program (DELP) scheme focuses on promoting efficient use of energy and mitigates climate change by increasing the use of energy efficient LED lighting at the residential level. It seeks to enhance the awareness of consumers about the efficacy of using efficient appliances. Aggregating demand, reducing the high initial costs and thus facilitating higher uptake of LED lights by residential users is a key take away of this project.

Under DELP scheme each household having

Either a connected load of less than or equal to two kilowatts will be provided with up to five 7-watt high-quality LED bulbs.Or a connected load of more than two kilowatts will be provided with up to ten 7-watt high-quality LED bulbs.

Under DELP scheme each household can purchase

Either at an initial payment of Rs.10 each followed by a recovery of Rs.110 each over a period of 11 months from electricity bills. Orat an upfront payment of Rs.100 for each LED bulbs subject to providing copy of electricity bill. Currently scheme is running in areas of DVVNL, MVVNL, PVVNL, NPCL & PuVVNL and approximately 1.01 Cr LED light have been distributed till March 2016.

2. Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC)

Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) was launched by Ministry of Power, Government of India in May 2007, as a first step towards promoting energy efficiency in the building sector. The Ministry of Power, Govt. of India is implementing ECBC in the States of India in consultation with the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) (Govt. of India, Ministry of Power). The ECBC was developed under the guidelines of BEE with significant inputs from various other stakeholders such as practicing architects, consultants, educational institutions and other government organizations. The purpose of ECBC is to provide minimum requirements for energy efficient design and construction of buildings and their systems without compromising on the comfort of the occupants.

New Construction

The Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) was developed by the Govt. of India for new commercial buildings on 27th May 2007. ECBC sets minimum energy standards for commercial buildings having a connected load of 100kW or contract demand of 120 KVA and above. While the Central Government has powers under the EC Act 2001, the state governments have the flexibility to modify the code to suit local or regional needs and notify them. Presently, the code is in the last stage of notification.

Existing Buildings

In existing building we could save upto 30 percent of electricity by applying ecbc code. For this we could do retrofitting in the existing building and can make building close to ECBC compliant building.

The ECBC provides design norms for:

  1. 1. Building envelope, including thermal performance requirements for walls, roofs, and windows
  2. 2. Lighting system, including day lighting, lamps and luminaries’ performance requirements
  3. 3. HVAC system, including energy performance of air distribution systems
  4. 4. Electrical system
  5. 5. Water heating and pumping systems, including requirements for solar hot-water systems.

First ECBC cell of India was established in UPSDA to facilitate the drafting of ECBC code, awareness about ECBC and also make some demo projects to showcase how an ECBC compliant building is constructed and its contribution in energy saving.

In Uttar Pradesh construction of Uttar Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (UPERC) office as a model building based on ECBC provision, has been completed and its detailed information including building material used and financial detail is as follows

Whether your building can be a ECBC compliant-building??

  • For those who want to know whether your building can be an ECBC compliant building can fill in the form attached in annexure-A giving few basic details of the building and email us.
  • Annexure-A
  • For those who are interested to build their building as per ECBC norms thus making it an ECBC-compliant building can fill in detail application form attached in annexure-B and email us.
  • Annexure-B
  • For those who are interested to build their existing building as per ECBC norms by retrofitting, thus making it an ECBC-compliant building can also fill the form.

In order to promote ECBC compliant/Energy Efficient building in Uttar Pradesh consultation is provided free of cost.


The PAT Scheme is being implemented in three phases:

  • The first phase runs from 2012-2015 covering 478 facilities from eight energy-intensive sectors, namely Aluminum, Cement, Chor-alkali, Fertilizer, Iron and steel, Pulp and Paper, Textiles and thermal power plants.
  • The second phase runs from 2015-2018 covering 621 facilities from eleven-intensive sectors, namely Aluminum, Cement, Chor-alkali, DISCOMs, Fertilizer, Iron and steel, Pulp and Paper, Railway, Refinery, Textiles and Thermal power plants.

For the State of Uttar Pradesh, 27 industries have been covered under the PAT Cycle-I in 07 sectors

  1. Aluminum : 01
  2. Cement: 02
  3. Chlor-Alkali: 01
  4. Fertilizers: 07
  5. Iron & Steel: 01
  6. Paper & Pulp: 03
  7. Thermal Power Plants: 12

Now, it’s increases from 27 to 47 industries under PAT Cycle-II in 11 sectors

  1. Aluminum : 01
  2. Cement : 03
  3. Chlor Alkali: 03
  4. DISCOM: 05
  5. Fertilizer : 08
  6. Iron & Steel : 01
  7. Pulp & Paper : 03
  8. Railway : 03
  9. Refinery : 01
  10. Textile : 01
  11. Thermal Power Plant : 18

PAT Cycle-I has been completed. Under PAT Cycle-II notification has been issued and new DCs have been identified.

5. Star Labeled Appliances (S&L)

The Bureau initiated the Standards & Labeling programme for equipment and appliances in 2006to provide the consumer an informed choice about the energy saving and thereby the cost saving potential of the relevant marketed product. The energy efficiency labeling programs under BEE are intended to reduce the energy consumption of appliance without diminishing the services it provides to consumers. The most recent additions to the list of labeled products are variable capacity AC's and LED lamps.
