Power corridor in Delhi to turn energy efficient

Power Minister Piyush Goyal´s favourite one-liner is ¨energy saved is energy generated¨. In keeping with this, he, along with Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL), is turning all government offices housed across the various Bhawans in Lutyen´s Delhi, energy-efficient.

Once completed in July, this drive would include heritage buildings like Rashtrapati Bhawan, North Block and South Block. With the use of LED lights, energy efficient fans and ACs, the government plans to cut electricity consumption by 25-30 per cent in these buildings. The entire investment will be borne by EESL and the work will be done by CPWD. The plan is to also include the Parliament, but changing all electricity-guzzling appliances in these 100-year old buildings will be a daunting task for CPWD. Officials in the Ministry say the first list of government buildings includes North Block and South Block.
