EESL

EESL has initiated a first of its kind large scale programme wherein existing agricultural feeders is being solarized via implementation of decentralized solar power plants at vacant/un-used lands at DISCOM substations.

EESL is in the process of planning and execution of approx. 1,500 MW Solar Projects in the states of Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Tamil Nadu, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Chhattisgarh, Kerala and Meghalaya.

In Maharashtra, PPA signed with Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) for 200 MW in January 2018 followed by 300 MW in October 2019 of 0.3 MW to 10 MW range in vacant/unutilized/spare lands of DISCOM. Till date, decentralized solar power plant of 106 MWp cumulative capacity has been commissioned/installed.

 

 

Benefits of the scheme:

  • Decentralized solar plants on surplus land of rural substations – to feed agriculture consumers directly reducing the chances of the encroachment of DISCOMs land.
  • Work as standalone plant where the power generated could be fed locally to 11KV agricultural feeders which reduces the line losses as well as reduces subsidy burden.
  • Decentralized solar directly feeding nearer to the load centers provides reliable supply of electricity to the Agricultural consumers
  • The main features of supplying the power from decentralized solar plants to agriculture feeders is that demand supply matches to the maximum extent. When its rainy reason, pumping demand is low but when the sun is shining bright, electricity generation is higher to meet the high demand of water pumping/irrigation needs of farmers.
  • Increased share of renewable energy.

 

 

  1. National E-Mobility Programme:

Government of India (GoI) approved the National Mission on Electric Mobility. Hence considering huge market potential and aspiration of GoI to take leadership in enabling e- mobility in India, EESL has got directions from Ministry of Power to enter EV domain considering demand aggregation. Subsequently, National E-Mobility Programme was launched on 7th March 2018 by Hon’ble Minister of Power, New and Renewable Energy.

The objective of this programme is to provide an impetus for Indian vehicle manufacturers, charging infrastructure companies, fleet operators, service providers, etc. to gain efficiencies of scale and drive down costs, create local manufacturing facilities, grow technical competencies for the long-term growth of the electric vehicle (EV) industry in India and to enable Indian EV manufacturers to emerge as major global players

Progress of the program:

Under National E-Mobility Programme, EESL has completed the procurement process of 10,000 e-cars. Till date, 1,514 e-cars have been deployed/under deployment for Government organizations along with commissioning of 308 AC & 180 DC captive chargers. These e-cars are being given on lease/outright purchase basis to replace the existing petrol and diesel vehicles taken on lease by Government organizations.

The cars on lease are intended to replace the present leased vehicles in various organizations and EESL takes portion of the present lease rent that the organizations are paying to their vendors to provide e-vehicles, thereby saving the costs as well. The vehicles are maintained by EESL during this lease rental period.

  1. For development of Charging Infrastructure for EVs:

EESL is developing public charging infrastructure in India. This is done on revenue share model wherein the vacant space and electric connections is being provided by Municipal Corporations/ DISCOMs and installation is being done by EESL. Beside this EESL is also installing charging stations at the premises of state and central Government offices basis their requirement. 

 

Benefits of the scheme:

  • Increased adoption of electric vehicles
  • Meeting the state objectives for creating an EV ecosystem

 

Building Energy Efficiency Programme (BEEP):

EESL is implementing the Buildings Energy Efficiency Programme to retrofit commercial buildings in India into energy efficient complexes. Through these future ready solutions, EESL is creating a market for clean energy in India

Government of India has issued an instruction to all Departments and Ministries in August 2017 to ensure all the buildings become energy efficient. Till date, EESL has completed building energy efficiency projects in 10,425 buildings including Railway stations and Airports. Energy Audits shows energy saving potential to the tune of up to 30-50% in these buildings. The major interventions in these buildings are in area of lighting and air-conditioning systems.

Progress of the programme may be seen at online dashboard https://beep.eeslindia.org/

 

Business Model: BEEP

EESL building energy efficiency approach is typically based on two models namely –

  1. ESCO- Entire upfront investment for the project will be borne by EESL. The investment will recover through periodical instalments which resulted from deemed energy saving over a mutually agreeable project period. O&M of new equipment is liability of EESL for contract period and this can enforce effective product warranties to ensure minimal downtime due to equipment malfunctions.
  2. PMC-EESL will play a role of project management consultant for implementation of project. The upfront investment for the project will borne by client. It is onetime payment cost of services offer for the energy efficiency projects.
