The State of Uttarakhand since its existence is trying to harp on Non-Conventional and renewable energy sources in order to achieve sustainability in the energy sector. The Uttarakhand Renewable Energy Development Agency (UREDA) has been established in July, 2001 exclusively to promote Renewable Energy Sources, for which the state has tremendous potential.

Govt. of Uttarakhand, vide its order No. 632/576/AS(E)/Camp/2008 dated 27th August, 2008, has nominated UREDA as "State Designated Agency (SDA)" in the State of Uttarakhand for Energy Conservation Programmes and awareness.. An Energy Conservation Cell has been created in the UREDA for implementation of EC Programmes in the State.

UREDA functions under the administrative control of Department of Renewable Energy, Govt. of Uttarakhand and basically implements the following programmes in the State:-

  1. Renewable Energy Programmes including generation of Power from Renewable Energy Sources
  2. Implementation of Energy Conservation Act, 2001.
  3. Demand side management
  4. Accreditation of RE Projects under REC (Renewable Energy Certificate) Mechanism.

 

In addition, UREDA designs and implements its own programmes which are specially suited for the state of Uttarakhand, and in many ways, has evolved systems, which are now accepted under the national programme.
