The Approach

Step 1:
Green Facilities looks at each company’s energy use along three dimensions

  • Use of heating fuels such as FO/LPG/Diesel
  • Diesel use for backup gensets
  • Grid power

Step 2:
It then evaluates all the renewable / sustainable energy options. The complete set of such options that are commercially viable today are:

  • Solar PV – on rooftop
  • Solar PV – power procurement from 3rd party
  • Solar water heater
  • Concentrating solar thermal
  • Wind power – either captive generation off premises or 3rd party purchase
  • Biomass power
  • Biomass based heating
  • Waste heat recovery/CHP/Cogeneration
  • Back-pressure steam turbine
  • Energy efficient heating solutions
  • Energy efficient lighting solutions

Step 3:
It then cross-references currently available solutions with the client’s criteria and constraints (investment, space etc.) to identify economical solutions. The following matrix shows how available solutions can result in reductions in energy use along the three paths.

Some examples of companies that have benefited from energy-saving initiatives:

  • Britania Industries Limited: 600 Kg/hour Gasifier to replace 3,000 Litres/day of Furnace Fuel for the Biscuit Furnace with a projected ROI < 1 year
  • Use of geothermal cooling at the Indian School of Business – Mohali campus in Chandigarh: The air conditioning system in the campus buildings, spread over 70 acres, has been so designed as to save 1.2 million kilowatt hours of power and 143.3 million litres of water a year. The financial saving on power alone will be Rs 87.16 lakh annually.
  • Use of sustainable cooling solutions at the four seasons hotels in Mumbai because of which power bill is expected to drop to Rs 10 – 15 lakh from over Rs 40 lakh presently.
  • A multi-national IT company in Maharashtra saved 100s of crores by signing up with a 3rd party wind power supplier
  • Bharti Airtel, a leading global telecommunications company with operations in 20 countries across Asia and Africa has powered up its core location with Solar Power at Gangaganj, Lucknow.
  • Biomass Power with Cogeneration at Velan Hotels, Tirupur: A 2.7 MW biomass power plant will be installed to meet the power requirements of the existing hotel, and for the mall and multiplex that is to be constructed. 800TR waste heat recovered from the biomass plant will be used for the air-conditioning of the mall and multiplex. The project is expected to cost Rs. 22.36 Crores and save Rs. 2 per unit on the expected 650 lakh units annual consumption
  • Tamil Nadu Newsprint and Papers Limited: A 500 Kg/day biogas plant is being implanted at TNPL’s plant at Karur to convert Kitchen and Food Waste to energy
  • Beach Minerals Company: The company has installed a 1.5 MW biomass gasifier plant for their manufacturing unit at Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu. The plant availability is more than 90% and delivers an overall profitability of Rs. 9.52/kWh
  • Apollo Hospitals: A geothermal based HVAC system was installed at the hospital’s Cancer Building in Hyderabad with a capacity of 200+ TR, resulting in energy savings of 43.6%
  • ITC Maurya: The Delhi hotel uses a rooftop concentrated solar thermal plant to generate steam of 175°C at 8 bar for its laundry, cooking, and other heating requirements
  • Numaligarh Refineries – Canteen waste of over 500 Kgs/day will be converted to biogas which will be used to substitute LPG at its Assam facility. Payback is expected in 6 years
  • Gateway Hotel – The Bengaluru hotel uses a 15,000 litres per day solar water heating system to substitute diesel. The plant costs Rs. 6.9 Lakhs and payback is expected in a year
