The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Energy has said the energy efficiency schemes implemented by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) over years have led to total savings of around Rs 54,770 crore even as its budgetary allocation was found to be insufficient over years.
The committee, chaired by Janta Dal (United) Member of Parliament Rajiv Ranjan Singh noted that the benefits derived from energy efficiency programmes in the country have been astonishing. "There has been a saving of 109.54 billion units which is 7 per cent of total electricity consumption of the country and has resulted in cost saving worth Rs. 54,770 crores," the panel said in its report tabled earlier this month.
