  • Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy (AEEE), New Delhi The Statement of Intent signed on 16 th may 2016 between NITI Aayog and AEEE is to provide a framework for cooperation for designing, developing and conducting consultative policy dialogue. The partnership would also include business research to promote and enable high level energy efficiency policy formulation in India by jointly undertaking the following activities -

    • To support mechanism for development and implementation of the broad national framework for energy efficiency with the goal to improve the energy intensity for Indian economy by helping set energy efficiency as a resource (MW) target at the national level, appraising the states for devising appropriate strategies for energy efficiency measures.
    • To provide input framework for national energy policy both at the central and state government level on energy efficiency.
    • To provide inputs and share best practices from India and around the world on energy services (ESCO) market development, including innovative energy efficiency financing, to enable a dynamic and vibrant energy services (ESCO) sector to implement government policies and scale up programmes within validated energy savings.
    • To look at market mechanisms and policy options to promote energy efficiency in the residential sector with a specific focus on multi dwelling units in medium and high rise esidential buildings.
    • To provide inputs in developing a roadmap for sustainable space cooling by balancing it against India’s power generation including peak demand reduction requirements by encouraging best available technology through stringent codes and standards.
    • Collaboratively work to enhance the capacity of Indian states and put an objective evaluation framework to implement energy efficiency policies and scale up the implementation efforts in all states.
    • To help build a public-private platform for ongoing dialogue on energy efficiency policy to enable a transparent public process of policy making.
    • Collaboratively develop suitable outreach and communications material including energy efficiency market and policy briefs, newsletters and reports showcasing the progress made by Government of India in energy efficiency policy formulation and implementation.
    • Collaboratively designing, developing and conducting research to promote and enable high level energy efficiency policy formulation and implementation framework in India.
