Indian state-owned Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) and the US Agency for International Development (USAID) are reporting the launch of the Healthy and Energy Efficient Buildings initiative aimed at retrofitting existing buildings and air conditioning systems for better health conditions and increased energy efficiency.

As part of the initiative, EESL will develop specifications for Indian building energy as well as aid in evaluating the effectiveness and cost benefits of various technologies and their short and long-term impacts on air quality, comfort, and energy consumption.

A recent PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC Ltd) report noted that various Indian energy efficiency measures have translated into approximate savings of Rs 89,122 crore ($890,000 US) in 2018-19, as against Rs 53,627 crore ($530,000 US) savings during 2017-18.
