EESL & BRPL partner to promote energy efficiency solutions in south & west Delhi
In line with providing energy efficient technologies, Energy Efficiency Serviced Limited (EESL) and BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL) entered into a strategic partnership to provide reliable services and offerings to over 24 lakh consumers in South and West Delhi. The scope of this association will cover developing technologies like Solar power, Roof top solar, Smart Meters, Electric Vehicles (EV) / EV charging stations, Solar irrigation pumps and Energy storage solutions.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to the affect was signed by Amal Sinha, CEO, BRPL and Saurabh Kumar, MD, EESL and the initial duration for the MoU is three years. As part of the MoU, EESL and BRPL will collaborate to explore the deployment of these emerging technologies to bring in energy efficiency, promote renewables and reduce the peak power demand in South and West Delhi.
Saurabh Kumar, MD, EESL said, “Synergy between institutions engaged in nation-building is key to achieve a fully energy efficient India. We are pleased to partner with BRPL in their pursuit towards energy efficiency and adoption of future-ready technology solutions like solar rooftop, smart meters, electric mobility, solar irrigation pumps and energy storage solutions. The signing of the MoU underscores our vision to enable all stakeholders to effectively manage their energy needs through efficient technologies. India has made a significant commitment to reduce its emission intensity by 33-35% from 2005 levels by 2030. Transition to future-ready and scalable energy efficient solutions will accelerate the achievement of this goal”
Amal Sinha, CEO, BRPL, added, “BRPL is committed to energy efficiency, adoption of green technology and smart procurement initiatives that will result in optimised solutions for us and our consumers. This association brings together two leaders in their respective domains and the resulting synergies are expected to benefit consumers in a more meaningful way, as also provide us insights to deal with emerging challenges and capitalize on opportunities.”
The agreement will benefit both BRPL and its consumers. This association will enable BRPL to introduce newer offerings (for its consumers at optimal costs) like setting-up of E Vehicle charging infrastructure, solar irrigation pumps (for rural areas), roof top solar, door step advisory in bill optimization and smart meters. These will go a long way in not only conserving energy and promoting renewable, but also will help consumers save money.
Energy saving potential
Under the program, around 10,000 inefficient agricultural pumps are expected to be replaced, which will lead to energy savings of upto 1.5 Billion over 3 years. It will also help in realizing the solar roof top potential of around 500 MW in the South and West Delhi area. BRPL & BYPL are premier power distribution companies and Joint Ventures between Reliance Infrastructure Limited and GoNCT.
