Special Chief Secretary (energy) K. Vijayanand released the State Energy Efficiency Action Plan (SEEAP) that envisaged a saving of 3.88 Million Tons of Oil Equivalent of energy across different sectors by 2030 at a workshop jointly organised by the State Energy Conservation Mission (SECM), Confederation of Indian Industry (CII)-AP and Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) to finalize the SEEAP at the AP-Transco head office in Vijayawada on Thursday. 

On the occasion, Mr. Vijayanand said the country targeted to achieve net zero emissions by 2070 and 45% carbon intensity reduction by 2030, which was possible when all States plan accordingly and deliver their commitments.

Mr. Vijayanand emphasized the need to finalise the sector-wise targets, including short and long-term plans, in consultation with the departments concerned. Cost reduction, advancement of technology, customer/stakeholders pull, sustainability and new investment opportunities were the major energy efficiency drivers, he added.
