Expert Speak: Electric vehicles, smart meters and solar rooftops key focus areas for EESL

  • Electric vehicles, smart meters, and solar rooftops are the three areas EESL is targeting over the next few years- will involve capex of INR150b, of which INR100b will be for electric vehicles alone.
  • EESL has reduced focus on durables (fans, air conditioners, tube lights), which have seen low offtake -low awareness with the end consumer about the benefits of energy- efficient products is a key reason for this.
  • Agricultural pumps too have not picked up, since there was a problem with getting the "base date" for energy efficiency calculations. EESL has decided to go slow in this product category.
