Under the GEF- World Bank Project:

“Financing Energy Efficiency at MSMEs” A joint Initiative by:

The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) & Centre of Excellence for Training in Energy Efficiency (CETEE), NPC, Chennai.


Hand-on Training Program on Energy Efficiency under the GEF - WB Project



As part of the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) Programmatic Framework for Energy Efficiency in India, the project of “Financing Energy Efficiency at MSMEs” has been initiated with an objective to increase demand for energy efficiency investments in targeted MSMEs clusters and to build capacity to access commercial finance. The project aspires to address the current gap in the understanding between energy auditors and bank loan officers, and demonstrate a viable mechanism of synergetic tie-up between MSMEs, energy auditors, financial consultants/chartered accountants, local industrial or MSME associations and local bankers. The GEF implementation agency for this project is the World Bank, and two executing agencies are the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), Ministry of Power, Govt. of India and the Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI). As part of the capacity building component and to increase the productivity/competitiveness of the cluster, BEE in association with Dr. Ambedkar Institute of Productivity, Chennai, National Productivity Council (NPC), Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Govt. of India is conducting a 2 day cluster specific training program including hands-on experience on various stimulators/machines at the Centre of Excellence for Training in Energy Efficiency, Chennai (CETEE), Chennai. The Centre of Excellence for Training in Energy Efficiency, Chennai (CETEE), Chennai is a state of the art facility. It is the joint initiative of Indo-Japanese Governmental co-operation and has been implemented with the assistance of BEE, Ministry of Power, Govt. of India, New Energy Development Organisation (NEDO), Govt. of Japan and Sumikin Management Company, an associate of Sumitomo Steels, Japan.



These training programmes are intended for professionals with technical background who are responsible for energy efficiency related activities in their respective units. This practical exposure aims towards: a) Bridging the gap between energy efficiency theory and practice by providing practical hands-on-training in the field of energy efficiency; b) Augmenting the knowledge and experience of these energy professionals/managers pertaining to the specific needs of MSMEs; and c) Dissemination of the latest technologies and practices those are internationally available in countries such as Japan and Germany, and which could be adopted for improving energy efficiency in target clusters. Accordingly, BEE had approached NPC, to design sector specific two day training programs for the following five MSME clusters targeted under this GEF-WB project. 

Ankleshwar – Chemical Cluster


Hand-on Training Program on Energy Efficiency under the GEF - WB Project

   

Faridabad – Mixed Cluster Kolhapur – Foundry Cluster Pune – Forging Cluster Tirunelveli – Lime Kiln Cluster

The two day training programme for the Foundry sector is proposed to cover the following topics: 

Overview of Energy & Environment Scenario

Basics of Energy & Energy Audit

 

Energy Usage and Conservation opportunities in Foundries Melting Furnaces – Cupola and Induction

Electrical Energy System and Motors

Compressed air generation and distribution system

 

Energy Efficient Lighting Systems Case studies and discussions

The widely appreciated hands-on training program will be include both theoretical and practical sessions and would concentrate on developing energy efficiency inquisitiveness in the participants.
