Textile

The textile industry in India can be classified into the organized sector and the decentralized/rural sector. The organized sector comprises mills, which include the spinning mill or the composite mill. The decentralized power-loom/hosiery and knitting sectors form the largest section of the textile industry.

Energy cost in the textile industry accounts for 5%– 17% of the total production cost. The total reported energy consumption of designated consumers is about 1.20 million ton of oil equivalent/year.

Specific energy consumption varies from 0.199 to 5.2 toe/t across the sector except couple of outliers. By the end of the first PAT cycle, the energy savings of 0.066 million ton of oil equivalent /year is expected to be achieved, which is 0.99% of total national energy saving targets assessed under PAT.

This section contains some of the best practices adopted by Indian textiles industry sector during 2012-2015. The case studies from the KEP launch workshop and National Energy conservation Awards 2012, 2013 are listed here.
