Young & Emerging Leaders Award in Energy Efficiency - 2020

       Recognition is considered as the most powerful thing which can influence a person to contribute his utmost efforts in achieving a target. This is because "There is more hunger for appreciation in this world than for bread. ”Recognition will have a symbiotic benefit for both the people involved. On one hand this will accelerate the efforts put-forth by an individual to reach the desired goals and on the other hand will enhance his/her knowledge/skill level which will pay them throughout their career.

Energy Scenario

                      India was the third largest energy consumer in the world, with 809 Million Tonnes of Oil Equivalent (Mtoe) in 2018, which is 1.75 times more than the energy consumption of Africa. India is also heavily dependent on imports for meeting its energy demands and this is one of the concern areas for energy security. 

It has been almost two decades since the enactment of the Energy Conservation Act and the effective result of the implementation can be inferred from the trend of decreasing energy intensity. A report by IEA on India Energy Outlook mentioned that the efforts by the Government of India have prevented 6% of additional energy use in 2017, which means that the Energy Conservation Act has provided the necessary stimulus to the ongoing energy conservation and efficiency efforts.

However, more ambitious efforts are required by various stakeholders to achieve climate change goals set under the Paris Agreement, and energy efficiency is a key lever to achieve these goals.
Recognition at present would be one of the efficient tool in achieving the above said goals which requires contribution from individuals involved at different dynamic levels like manufacturers ,end-users, policymakers, service providers, auditors etc.,

CII which is a non-government, not-for-profit, industry-led and industry-managed organization will always play a proactive role in country's development process in all segments. CII which understood the symbiotic benefits of applying the recognition principle to achieve energy efficiency goals is recognizing individuals for their outstanding achievements and implementing new and innovative energy efficiency measures through Young &Emerging Leaders Award in Energy Efficiency.
