Under National Mission for Enhanced Energy Efficiency (NMEEE), the scheme Perform, Achieve and Trade (PAT) is a regulatory instrument to reduce specific energy consumption in energy intensive industries, with an associated market based mechanism to enhance the cost effectiveness through certification of excess energy saving which can be traded. Perform, Achieve and Trade in its first cycle was designed to reduce the specific energy consumption (SEC) in energy intensive sectors under 478 DC’s from 8 sectors viz. Aluminium, Cement, Chlor-Alkali, Fertilizer, Iron & Steel, Paper & Pulp, Thermal Power Plants and Textiles have been included.
PAT Cycle 1 has achieved an energy saving of 8.67 mtoe against the targeted energy saving of 6.68 mtoe, which is about 30% over achievement and is equivalent to monetary savings of approx Rs. 9500 crore. PAT is a multi-scheme aimed to cover most of the energy intensive sectors of the economy.
