  • 1. ENERGY CONSERVATION IN SMALL SECTOR TEA PROCESSING UNITS IN SOUTH INDIA Executing agency: Tea Board of India Implementing agency: TIDE GEF agency: UNDP Focal area: climate change GEF grant: US$ 0.975 Co-financing: US$ 1.1million Concept approval date: October 2005 CEO endorsement date: 25 July 2007
  • 2. PROJECT STAKEHOLDERS Tea Board TIDE UPASI ELPRO energy auditors Tea factories in south India Equipment suppliers Commercial lending institutions
  • 3. Overview of the tea sector Global tea production (2010) 4162 million kg Global tea exports 42% Indias tea production (2010) 966 million kg Current turnover of the industry INR 195,000 million
  • 4. India and the major tea producers
  • 5. The south Indian tea sector Production 241 million kgs ( export about 30%) Price realization US4 178 million
  • 6. Specific energy cost and consumption
  • 7. Project Objective To reduce energy consumption from tea processing units in South India, thereby restricting Greenhouse Gases emissions To remove barriers to energy conservation and energy efficiency that inhibit the realization of large energy saving potential in the tea sector
  • 8. The project outcomes Awareness creation among the target sector about energy efficiency/ renewable energy technologies and their relation to profitability Elimination of financial barriers that inhibit investment in energy conservation equipment Adoption and procurement of energy efficiency/ renewable energy equipment/ practice Learning, knowledge sharing and replication
  • 9. Barriers and risks in energy use reform

  • 21. CHALLENGES To get the buy in from the tea factories The need to combine committed project deliverables with constantly evolving need and dynamic risk perception. Difficult to attract quality human resource as project was implemented from a small town (Coonoor). Technical documentation was often challenging as most technically competent people did not have matching writing or communication skills.
  • 22. LEARNING Technology a barrier and not access to finance as was understood at the time of project conceptualization. Understood that energy use reform can be initiated through awareness and technical support without any financial incentives The tea sector is extremely demanding and would reject any recommendation that is not backed by adequate data and information.. All risk is dynamic and constantly changing. Decisions on energy use reform are complex and they are not driven by techno economics, equipment specifications or CO2 reduction potential alone. The project has developed some insights into how to gauge the need and the risk perception and constantly modify its intervention strategies.
  • 23. Scaling up and possibilities? Where do you think we go from here?
