Best Practices Reports on Energy Conservation Measures

The Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency (REEE) Programme was initiated in July 2006 jointly by Small and Medium Enterprise Development Authority (SMEDA), National Productivity Organization (NPO) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit-German Technical Cooperation (GTZ). The objective of REEE Programme is to strengthen the industrial sector of Pakistan and to help better cope with rising energy prices and resource constraints. Textile is the first sector that has been selected under this Programme.

In the first phase, six textile units from Spinning and Processing sub-sectors (two each from Karachi, Lahore and Faisalabad) were selected as pilot projects to demonstrate energy efficiency gains as a result of Detailed Energy Audits (DEAs) and targeted interventions.

The outcomes of Energy Audits show great potential for energy efficiency. By implementing suggested measures, an average 10% of the energy saving potential in spinning units and 25-30% saving potential in processing units has been identified. Since the results of energy audits are very encouraging, we are confident that expanding the same with the co-operation of stakeholders and trade associations will greatly help in bridging the gap between demand and supply of energy and ensuring competitiveness of the textile industry.

We are currently in the process of devising a strategy for replicating these DEAs and also expanding the scope of this work to other sub-sectors of textile industry.

A joint team of SMEDA, NPO and German experts of GTZ has compiled Best Practices reports based on the findings of the energy audits of six pilot projects of spinning and processing in the textile sector. These reports can be downloded from the links below. The objecive to prepare these reports is to disseminate the output of this excercise for better energy conservation practices for the rest of industry.
