Andhra Pradesh to set up ECC in government departments

The Andhra Pradesh state government is planning to set up energy conservation cells (ECC) in all its departments to promote efficient use of energy at all levels and achieve energy security along with economic, environmental and social benefits.

According to an estimate by Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) and the Andhra Pradesh State Energy Conservation Mission (APSECM), about 25 per cent of energy consumption can be reduced by the state by adopting energy-efficient technologies. The state government has directed all heads of departments (HoD) and district collectors to create ECCs in all 87 HoD offices, district level offices, corporations and various society offices in the state. The ECC will act as a nodal agency to coordinate with APSECM for effective implementation of energy conservation and energy efficiency measures in their respective department and organisation.
