The Ministry of Power and Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) are entrusted with the task of preparing the implementation for the National Mission on Enhanced Energy Efficiency (NMEEE) under National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC). This mission has a component which deals with the market based mechanism to improve the energy efficiency in energy intensive large industries and facilities by certification of energy savings which could be traded. This scheme known as Perform, Achieve and Trade (PAT) is expected to save about 10 million metric tonne of oil equivalent (mMtoe) by 2013-14. Eight industrial sectors namely Power, Iron & Steel, Fertilizer, Cement, Aluminium, Pulp & Paper, Textile and Chlor-alkali have been included in this scheme where in about 680 industries (known as designated consumers (DCs)) are covered.
