EESL, ISHRAE partners for energy-efficient solutions in the HVAC&R sector
State-owned Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) has announced that it has partnered with The Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE) for the implementation of energy-efficient and clean energy solutions in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC&R) space.
The Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE) works with the objective of advancement of the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration engineering and associated services; and encourages research in the field of HVAC&R technology.
"Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), a joint venture under the administration of Ministry of Power, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers for a strategic partnership for the implementation of energy-efficient and clean energy solutions in the HVAC&R Industry," a declaration said.
The MoU was signed by Rajat Sud, Managing Director, EESL, and Amitabha Sur, President, ISHRAE, in the august presence of officials from the EESL cluster and state offices and officials of ISHRAE.
The MoU comes in the backdrop of the upcoming World Environment Day.
Under this association, EESL and ISHRAE will collaboratively work towards the implementation of solutions associated with energy efficiency, clean energy, and other ancillary services in the HVAC&R domain.
Both the parties will exchange information in their respective areas that are of common interest, and will jointly work in conducting studies, like demand aggregation in the HVAC&R sector, that serves the best interests of the HVAC&R Industry.
Through this partnership, EESL and ISHRAE aim to set up sub-committees or task forces to address specific areas requiring joint participation for the promotion of energy-efficient low carbon technologies in cooling & heating and the cold chain sector, comprising transportation.
They will also synergistically work on District Energy Systems, which will include awareness & adoption, training, and capacity-building programmes for Refrigerator and Air Conditioning (RAC) technicians engaged in Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM), channel partners, or independent service centres.
Rajat Sud said in the statement, "ISHRAE has expertise in the advancement of the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration engineering and related services. While, EESL has experience and capability of providing consultancy services, implementation support and financing for energy efficiency and clean energy projects."
"Therefore, through this association, we anticipate considerable synergy and are expecting considerable environmental benefits, which will lead to a sustainable future," he further said.
Amitabha Sur of ISHRAE said, "The HVAC market is expected to witness unprecedented growth, with the demand for cooling and chilling equipment being driven by rising temperatures, urban migration trends, and rapid advancement in green building constructions. It is vital to implement energy efficiency solutions to move towards a cleaner and greener future. We look forward to doing some impactful work with EESL through this collaboration."
