The PAT program is a program launched by the BEE to reduce energy consumption and promote better energy efficiency among specific energy-intensive industries in the country.

The The State Energy Conservation Mission (AP – SECM) identified 228 industrial units, including 85 new ones, as having the potential to become Designated Consumers (DC) under the Perform, Achieve & Trade (PAT) program and submitted the proposal to the Office of Energy Efficiency (BEE) for their approval (as DC).

They come from the chlor-alkali, tertiary buildings, aluminum, cement, steel, spinning and textile, petrochemical, automotive, ceramics, food and fishing.

The PAT program is a program launched by the BEE to reduce energy consumption and promote better energy efficiency among specific energy-intensive industries in the country.

SECM CEO A. Chandra Sekhar Reddy said in a press release that Chief Secretary (CS) Sameer Sharma recognized the PAT as an excellent program in the field of energy efficiency, while stressing that 36 major industrial units of the state achieved savings of 0.818 million. Tonnes of Oil Equivalent (MTOE) of energy worth Rs 5,709 crore over the past few years by implementing energy efficiency measures under the PAT scheme.

Energy savings at the national level amounted to 24.5 MTOE, which contributed to reducing energy intensity, production costs and increasing productivity in industries.

The SC was quoted as ordering all district collectors and heads of departments to immediately form energy conservation cells in coordination with the SECM, and thanking the Secretary of the Ministry of Energy Alok kumar and the Director General from BEE Abhay Bakre for their support in the implementation of the PAT program. .

He advised all departments to conduct quarterly energy efficiency reviews and prepare action plans for their effective implementation under the guidance of Special CS (Energy) K. Vijayanand.
