CESL-Ladakh sign pact to make Ladakh Carbon-neutral
State-owned Convergence Energy Services Ltd (CESL) has inked a pact with Ladakh administration to make Union Territory of Ladakh carbon-neutral.
- CESL which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Administration of Ladakh to make it clean and green.
- Under it, several clean energy and energy-efficiency programmes will be implemented.
What are those projects?
CESL will take up projects like solar mini- and micro-grid solutions, energy storage-based solutions, energy-efficient lighting, efficient cooking stoves and electric mobility solutions. It will develop clean solutions for home appliances, electric heating, pump sets and cooking sets for very cold temperatures in Ladakh. It will also focus on EV ecosystem like EC charging infrastructure utilising renewable sources of power.
How these projects are significant?
Energy Access for Ladakh is foremost. UT needs sustainable solutions like decentralised energy-efficient solutions which can be easily implemented in the difficult terrains of Ladakh. Projects will eliminate fossil fuel to make Ladakh’s carbon-neutral. If the solar capacity is harnessed, it will trigger business and jobs in the region.
