BEE Launches SAATHEE Portal to Track State Energy Efficiency Targets at NECA

BEE launched the SAATHEE (State-wise Actions on Annual Targets and Headways on Energy Efficiency) portal at the recently held NECA ceremony

The Ministry of Power, in association with the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), recently held the 30th National Energy Conservation Awards (NECA), to promote energy conservation among all the sectors of the economy, followed by an award distribution ceremony for the industrial units and other establishments to encourage more actions in achieving efficient utilisation of energy sources. At the event, BEE launched SAATHEE (State-wise Actions on Annual Targets and Headways on Energy Efficiency) – a portal for State Designated Agency (SDA) for state level activities in the energy conservation sphere.

BEE developed the Management Information System (MIS) portal, with the main objectives of the web-portal being:

  • It will be useful in capturing the physical and financial status/ progress of Energy Efficiency activities being implemented by States/ UTs across the country.
  • It will facilitate real-time monitoring of the progress of implementation of all the Energy Efficiency and Energy Conservation endeavours such as demonstration projects, awareness campaigns, capacity building workshops, etc. being carried out by SDAs at the state-level.
  • It will also help in decision making, coordination, control, analysis, and implementation and enforcement of the compliance process for various energy consumers at the pan India level.
  • This MIS portal would present the physical and financial progress of SDAs in the form of multiple reports and provide tracking of progress made by the SDAs
  • The portal shall also facilitate BEE in providing information regarding best practices, major achievements and upcoming important events of each SDA.

Also at the event, it was detailed that this year, a reported 409 units participated in NECA 2020 and collectively achieved savings of 3,007 million units and substantial thermal energy savings resulting in Rs 1503 crore.

During the event, the Star Labelling Programme for Air Compressor and UHD TV was also launched on a voluntary basis. With the energy consumption standards coming into effect from January 1, 2021. This initiative is expected to save around 8.41 Billion Units of electricity for Air Compressors and 9.75 Billion Units for UHD TV till 2030.
