Projects - Energy Efficiency     Renewable Energy



    From the present energy costs of 17% of total manufacturing costs there is potential for savings of about 30%.

    Main Thrust Areas
    Energy Efficiency Improvement
    Fossil fuel switch from high carbon intensive fuel to low carbon intensive fuel
    (e.g. from HFO/Diesel to Gas) for Power Generation
    Use of alternative fuels (Rice husk, cotton waste, etc)
    Carbon Credits Potentials are ranging from 10,000 to 171,000 Tones of CO2/annum


    One of the most energy extensive industries with energy representing 30 - 40% of production cost and the saving potential is likely to be at least 15%.
    Main Trust Areas
    Waste heat recovery power generation
    Use of alternative fuels such as MSW, RDF, biomass, tires, etc in cement kilns
    Energy efficiency improvements
    Use of blends in cement production: Fly ash, blast iron slag, non-carbonated calcium sources in the raw mix for cement processing, etc.
    Carbon Credits Potentials are up to 72,000 Tones of CO2/annum


    Production of Ammonia accounts for 80% of the energy consumption for nitrogenous fertilizer and the energy saving potential is estimated to be at least 15%.
    Main Thrust Areas
    Improvements in the reforming (installing a pre-reformer, shifting part of the primary reformer to the secondary with installation of a purge gas recovery unit, and upgrading the catalyst to reduce the steam/carbon ratio)
    Improvements in the CO2 removal (A reduction of the energy requirement for recycling and regeneration of the solvent can be achieved by using advanced solvents, pressure swing absorption or membranes.)
    Improvements in the synthesis section
    Improvements in the purge gas recovery
    Energy savings from development of new and better catalysts
    Improved metallurgy leading to superior and more efficient process equipments
    The GHG mitigation potential of the Indian fertilizer industry is 30,240,000 tones of CO2e. The CER potential realized annually by registered Indian projects is only 5,514,000 tones of CO2e.


    Energy cost contributes to nearly 30 - 35 % of the sector’s production cost and the energy saving potential is calculated to be at least 10%.
    Main Thrust Areas
    Energy Efficiency improvement of thermal and electrical energy systems.
    Waste heat recovery power generation
    Use of alternative fuels
    Coke making – Coke Dry Quenching with New Coke Oven Batteries,
    Sinter making – Waste Heat Recovery from Sinter cooler (`~ 9,50,000 tons of CO2/ annum), Multi Silt Burners in Ignition Furnace (~ 70,000 tons of CO2/ annum)
    Iron making – Coal dust / Coal Tar injection in Blast Furnace, Top gas recovery Turbine at Blast Furnace
    Steel making – Recovery of BOF gas
    Casting & Rolling – Walking beam furnace at Rolling Mills
    Estimation of carbon reduction from implementation of these projects is likely to be 6.1 million tons of CO2 annually.


    Petrochemical industry accounts for 30% of industrial energy use and the energy saving potential in this sector is projected to be at least 18 to 26%
    Main Thrust Areas
    Energy efficiency improvements
    Recovery and utilization of gas from oil wells that would have flared
    Leak reduction from Natural Gas pipeline and compressors
    Process intensification and integration
    Use of best practice technology (BPT) could reduce fuel and steam energy requirements by13%.
    Carbon Credits Potentials are ranging from 54,000 to 300,000 Tones of CO2/annum

    Rural Electrification
    RENCO’s Village Electrification Project (VEP) is to develop and install a Hybrid System of Renewable Energy Technologies in rural villages as a driving force for village women entrepreneurship, village empowerment, poverty alleviation and economic growth by InSDR, RENCO’s not for profit Organization the Institute for Sustainable Development & Research

    To promote an example of a village that adopts green energy for their day to day use to meet their energy demand.

    Renewable Energy offers many advantages and value to the village over current grid connection especially with regard to reliable supply, higher quality, long term energy security and personal/community ownership and influence of their infrastructure.

    The project strategy focuses on an empowerment model with the local village being the main stakeholders in the venture. The village is expected to be active participants in the operations through a business model with technical and administrative assistance from InSDR and the technology partners. The overall strategy is structured to promote local entrepreneurship, ownership and revenue generation and partnerships are being developed to facilitate further development in the villages.
