"Steering businesses towards sustainable profits and growth"


The micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) sector in India plays a vital role in India's economic growth. With over 30 million units, SMEs accounted for 17% of the country's GDP in 2011 which is expected to increase to 22% in one year. MSMEs consume nearly 25% of energy in the entire manufacturing sector but are generally slow in adopting energy saving measures. This sector consumes energy inefficiently compared to large companies and this is attributed mainly to lack of access to financial resources and technical knowledge and awareness. MSMEs also have a significant impact on environment as they are equipped with obsolete, inefficient and polluting technologies and processes. The government of India has advocated MSME sector to invest in energy efficient equipment

Keeping the challenges being faced by MSMEs in the country, there is urgent need to support the sector to encourage energy saving investments to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon-di-oxide emissions and improve profitability.
