In order to tap the energy saving potential, Agriculture Demand Side Management (AgDSM) program was initiated in XI plan by Bureau of Energy Efficiency with an objective to induce energy efficiency in agriculture sector by creating market based framework for implementation of few pilot projects and create awareness among end users & other stakeholders for adoption of energy efficient pump sets (EEPS).

During the XII plan, realizing the vast energy saving potential in the sector, BEE intends to continue the programme with an objective to build up the process of acceleration of sustainable energy efficiency in the plan through following interventions:

–       Regulatory mechanism to mandate the use of BEE star labeled pump sets for new connections

–       Facilitate implementation of DPRs and setting up monitoring & verification protocol
