Stakeholders platform to encourage use of scalable renewable energy technology and enabling energy management with incremental energy efficiency
- About us
- Support Teams
India in today's scenario is facing serious pressure on energy that majorly relies on thermal energy sources (60% of India's installed power generation capacity is coal-based). This results in rapid depletion of natural coal reserves and also contributes to a majority of GHG emissions. According to a recent estimate by Power minister, India's total power consumption would double to 2 trillion units by 2019. Due to exponential increase in energy demand, it has become a "must do" task to either achieve greatest efficiency in energy consumption or adopt alternate form of energy sources including renewable energy for achieving energy security.
"TERI CBS Energy Chapter" (through Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy) is an effort to provide a collaborative platform for various stakeholders to create a larger impact. This Chapter will bring together stakeholders representing the energy value chain influencing energy demand including energy producers, bulk consumers, and technology providers. The chapter envisages creating economically viable, technologically proven solutions that can be adopted by the industry and community and cater to grid supported larger demands as well as distributed off grid energy access.
To establish India's energy security by use of commercially viable new and renewable energy (RE) sources while providing solutions for energy demand management with incremental energy efficiency (EE) through commercially viable and business justifiable solutions.
- Create awareness and capacity building platform for energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.
- Offer an industry led platform to stakeholders of energy sector for collaboration.
- Identify and showcase medium and long term business justifiable energy efficiency and renewable energy technology deployment.
- Help development grid and off grid renewable energy at scale.
- Encourage Technology Innovation and implementable solution creation (EE & RE)
- Engage with policy makers to work through the policy gaps/barriers in a constructive environment.

Hero Future Energies Limited (HFE) carries an illustrious legacy of The Hero Group. Incorporated in October 2012, HFE is an Independent Power Producer (IPP) with growth plans to invest progressively in Wind, Solar and Hydro sector over the years.
Our vision is to drive India's development by leading a change in generating energy using Renewable Resources like Wind, Sun, Hydro and providing Sustainable, Cost-effective, Clean Power thereby reducing Carbon Emissions leading to a Greener Planet for our future generations.
We call this “planet positive power”.
HFE has operating Wind and Solar projects totalling 250+ MW in the states of Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. We have executed roof-top projects (apprx. 4 MW commissioned). All these projects are instrumental in reducing approx. 4 lakh tonne of Carbon emissions annually.
TERI Industrial Energy Efficiency
Industry drives the processes of growth in all sectors of the economy. It also consumes huge amounts of energy, accounting for more than half of the total commercial energy consumed in India. Given its expertise in energy optimization, TERI is increasingly being invited to undertake energy audits and develop management plans for the corporate sector. During 2012–13, TERI engineers conducted baseline energy audits for clients in various industry sectors such as cement, pharmaceuticals, chloralkali, heavy engineering, tea processing, etc. In addition, audits were also completed for Hyderabad International Airport, water utilities in Burkina Faso and Mali in Africa, and industrial plants in Nigeria, Indonesia, and Malaysia. TERI also continued to provide services to the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), Government of India through its engagement with the PAT scheme under the National Mission on Enhanced Energy Effi ciency (NMEEE).
Apart from strengthening its long standing partnership in the Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) fi eld with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), TERI initiated another major project on energy effi ciency in 2012 in three specifi c MSME industrial clusters with support from SIDBI under the World Bank-GEF programme. A fi rst of its kind National Summit on Energy Effi ciency in MSMEs was also organized under the SAMEEEKSHA platform.
The IEE Division also focuses on research and development in the fi eld of energy regulation and practices with a focus on the electricity sector. During the year, TERI researchers worked on specific activities related to Demand Side Management (DSM), tariff rationalization, and other regulatory aspects for the states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Punjab, and Rajasthan. A series of capacity-building and learning programmes on the regulatory framework in the Indian power sector for senior level offi cials of one of India's leading power sector PSUs was another highlight of the work undertaken during the year.
TERI Renewable Energy Technology Application
Focusing on the development of clean and innovative technological solutions and their markets, the goal of the Division is to address energy and environment related challenges, especially those facing the developing world. For this it relies on global collaborations and multidisciplinary approaches together with its rich knowledge base gained through developing suitable solutions for diverse applications and user groups.
After pioneering the use of a GIS platform for mapping Gujarat's potential for renewable energy resources, the Division carried out a comprehensive study on policy and regulatory issues for their large scale grid integration. Besides dissemination of biomass gasifiers and ‘TEAM’ bio-methanation systems, the focus is on developing systems and exploring opportunities for decentralized applications such as the milestone of commissioning a biomass gasifier-based cold storage-cum-rural electrification system with smart metering in a village in Uttar Pradesh. Similarly, Solar Multi Utility projects for livelihood generation activities were implemented in Assam, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh. These projects improve the performance of solar power plants in remote locations and focus on enhancing community ownership and revenue generation. A state-of-the-art Smart Controller Laboratory was also established to develop optimized distributed power solutions.Read more
