Title: RAISE Program

Synopsis: Poor air quality has been a concern in India for quite some time and has become even more important considering the COVID-19 pandemic. Maintaining good indoor air quality is essential for reducing pathogen spread and ensuring safety and wellbeing of occupants, as people return to their offices and public spaces. Most existing buildings in India are not equipped to establish and maintain healthy indoor air quality and need to be upgraded. Currently, there is no standardized approach to retrofitting for COVID-19 response.

Building Energy Efficiency Program (BEEP)

Title: Building Energy Efficiency Program (BEEP)

Synopsis: Building Energy Efficiency Program (BEEP), world’s largest zero-subsidy energy efficiency retrofit scheme, was launched with MAITREE’s assistance by Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) in 2017. It aimed at optimizing energy use in the building sector and catalyzing market transition to cost effective, highly energy efficient building technologies. Retrofits are implemented through Energy Services Company (ESCO) model, wherein upfront investments made by EESL are recovered through monetary savings accrued from reduced energy costs. Lighting and cooling appliances are replaced with BEE 5 Star rated labelled products. 184 thousand tons of CO2e, 75 MW of peak demand, 224 million units of electricity and 28 million USD are saved or averted annually from BEEP projects. Notable BEEP partners include public sector agencies (Maharashtra Public Works Department, Indian Railways, Central Public Work Department) and industries (Mahindra and Mahindra, TATA).
