#dnaEdit: Focus on efficiency 29.9.2014 DNA: Recent Columns
The government’s decision to launch three energy efficiency initiatives for multi-storey residential buildings, hospital buildings and diesel generator sets is an attempt to tap into the huge potential for energy efficient design that exists in India. By 2009-10, the annual savings on electricity generation had reached 2,868 MW and conservative estimates pegged the energy efficiency industry at Rs74,000 crore. Ever since the Energy Conservation Act came into effect in 2002, energy efficiency measures have revolved around a standards and labelling programme for consumers, phasing out inefficient agricultural pumpsets, mandating municipal bodies to shift to energy efficient practices, and incentivising builders to follow the Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC).  By 2009-10, the National Productivity Council(NPC) verified the electrical energy saving from the five-star rating programme for air-conditioners, refrigerators, tube lights and transformers and the technological shift to LED screens and ...

Hosts had one question for me: How does Leonardo DiCaprio jetting into New York help save the planet? The clear implication was that it did not. I found myself leaping to DiCaprios defence and, by extension, that of every A-list ethical advocate of our times. Actually, DiCaprio is easy to defend. Hes been banging on about environmental issues for a decade and is a credible climate campaigner, despite the private jets. He is more of an expert than he gave himself credit for in Tuesdays speech , where he specifically positioned himself as a concerned ...
