India introduces legislation for energy conservation

May 26, 1997 02:00 AM

May 6, 1997 The Indian government plans to enact an energy conservation law before the year-end to make energy audit mandatory for large consumers of various energy sources and bring in the concept of energy label for power-intensive equipment.
Under the new law, industries and other large consumers will be required to carry out audits on their energy consumption levels and make efforts to optimise the use, Bhasker Natarajan, director of the Energy Management Center under the Indian Ministry of Power, said. Similarly, manufacturers of power-intensive products such as refrigerators, air-conditioners and industrial machinery would be asked to stick a label on the product indicating its energy consumption level as against a benchmark standard.
The legislation would not confine itself to electricity, but cover all other energy sources including the non-conventional sources, the official said.
The need for such a law was felt both at government and industry levels as a lack of a facilitative mechanism had helped evaders continue with energy-inefficient systems, he stressed.
