Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), a joint venture under the administration of the Ministry of Power has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with The Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE) for a strategic partnership for the implementation of energy-efficient and clean energy solutions in the HVAC&R Industry.
The MoU comes in the backdrop of the upcoming World Environment Day. Under this association, EESL and ISHRAE will collaboratively work towards the implementation of solutions related to energy efficiency, clean energy, and other ancillary services in HVAC&R domain.
Both the parties will exchange information in their respective areas that are of common interest, and will jointly work in conducting studies, like demand aggregation in the HVAC&R sector, that serves the best interests of the HVAC&R Industry.
Shri Rajat Sud, MD, EESL said, “ISHRAE has expertise in the advancement of the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration engineering and related services. While, EESL has experience and capability of providing consultancy services, implementation support and financing for energy efficiency and clean energy projects. Therefore, through this association, we foresee considerable synergy and are expecting considerable environmental benefits, which will lead to a sustainable future”.
Highlighting the importance of the association, Shri Amitabha Sur, President, ISHRAE said, “The HVAC market is expected to witness unprecedented growth, with the demand for cooling and chilling equipment being driven by rising temperatures, urban migration trends and rapid advancement in green building constructions. It is vital to implement energy efficiency solutions in order to move towards a cleaner and greener future. We look forward to doing some impactful work with EESL through this collaboration.”
Through this partnership, EESL and ISHRAE aim to set up sub-committees or task forces to address specific areas requiring joint participation for the promotion of energy-efficient low carbon technologies in cooling & heating and in the cold chain sector, including transportation. They will also synergistically work on District Energy Systems, which will include awareness & adoption, training, and capacity-building programs for Refrigerator and Air Conditioning (RAC) technicians engaged in Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM), channel partners, or independent service centers.
