The Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI) and Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) are jointly implementing a Global Environment Facility (GEF) and World Bank funded project, which aims to promote energy efficiency in micro,small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in four clusters, viz. Tiruppur, Erode, Ranipet, and Viruudhachalam.
CII-Godej GBCwas assigned to provide project development support for the Tirupur cluster. The main objective of the project was to create a demand for energy efficiency investments in the cluster. CII, with the support of its local implementing partner VRnC, completed cluster profiling and detailed resource efficiency audits in 72 units, and provided implementation support in 13 units for energy efficiency project implementation.
From the identified and proposed energy and clean saving opportunities, CII has supported all the 72 units with implementation support.
A total of 117 energy efficiency projects, have been implemented in these clusters, with implemented energy efficiency investment (EEI) of INR 420.4 Lakh (fully and partially) and implemented emissions reduction (ER) of 47,145 tCO2 (lifetime). As many MSMEs are still implementing the projects, the current achievement is 30% of the energy savings when compared with the energy savings achievable from the implementation of all identified energy efficiency measures.

The Global Climate Partnership Fund (GCPF) and their partner financial institution in India areplanning to develop a green lending portfolio that comprises CNC (Turning & Milling), VMC (Drilling & Milling), and Injection Moulding (Plastic Moulding) technologies. To identify the current potential for financing, GCPF commissioned a study for CNC, VMC and Injection Moulding technologies, with objective of assessing market scenarios, establishing benchmarks for energy efficiency performance, and develop a tool to assess the energy savings and potential GHG mitigation by implementation of such technologies.
CII-Godrej GBC partnered in this project to conduct a Baseline Study and develop a 'Report & Tool' on to compare the various parameters of CNC, VMC, and Injection Moulding technologies in India. Visits to manufacturing (machine tool) companies across India were conduced to gather, analyse and compare performance parameters of these machines, and to assess actual techno-economic feasibility of various possible technological improvements.
Based on the market and technical assessment,it was found that the conventional technologies are widely used in the sectors, and that there is good potential for energy consumption reduction in these technologies. As part of the project, plant energy consumption was also benchmarked with latest technologies in CNC Machines & Injection Moulding.
