Municipal Energy Efficient Programme (MEEP)

Last updated: 12 May 2021
As part of India’s Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT), EESL is with the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs deploying more efficient pumps in 500 cities. EESL will replace inefficient pumps in public water works and sewerage systems at no upfront cost to the municipal bodies. The investment will be recovered from the savings in energy costs. EESL is aggregating demand for these pumps from Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) and leveraging the resulting economies of scale to bring down their cost, making them a more attractive investment. With the deployment of superior, energy efficient pumps, and their reliability underpinned by 7 years of repair and maintenance, urban residents will be assured of uninterrupted supply, while states benefit from lower municipal energy bills and reduced water wastage. Over 330 Indian cities will be audited for energy efficiency under AMRUT.
