BEE releases State Energy Efficiency Index 2019

The Bureau of Energy Efficiency has released the State Energy Efficiency Index 2019 developed in association with the Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy. The index tracks the progress of energy efficiency initiatives in 36 states and union territories based on 97 indicators. For a rational comparison, states/union territories have been classified into four groups based on the aggregated total primary energy supply (TPES) required to meet the state’s actual energy demand (electricity, coal, oil and gas) across sectors. Under four categories based on TPES, Haryana, Kerala, Karnataka, Maharashta, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Puducherry and Chandigarh have been evaluated as progressive states/union territories in the State Energy Efficiency Index 2019.
