Andhra Pradesh plans energy audit for 16 civic bodies

Andhra Pradesh State Energy Conservation Mission (APSECM) will conduct investment grade energy audit (IGEA) in 16 municipal corporations of the state as Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) has provided financial support and given green signal to APSECM.

The initiative is a part of the municipality demand side management programme of BEE. The APSECM has selected a New Delhi based expert agency, PTC India Limited, through the open tender system for the conduct of IGEA. The APSECM, which works under the state energy department, will in turn take support and assistance from the municipal administration and urban development department in conducting the IGEA. IGEA will ultimately explore the energy savings potential and make necessary recommendations on energy conservation and efficiency measures.
