Perform, Achieve and Trade (PAT) is a market-based mechanism to enhance cost effectiveness of improvements in energy efficiency in energy intensive large industries and facilities, through certification on energy savings that could be traded.
Targets for improvements in energy efficiency are set under section 14 of the Energy Conservation Act, 2001 in a manner that reflects fuel usage and the economic effort involved. The Government, in March 2007 notified units in nine industrial sectors, namely aluminium, cement, chlor-alkali, fertilizers, iron and steel pulp and paper, railways, textiles and thermal power plants, as Designated Consumers(DCs).
PAT Scheme Inauguration
The main moto behind the Inauguration of the PAT (Perform, Achieve, Trade) is to encourage hundreds and thousands of Industrial units in India to keep their eyes on energy uses. The PAT System was inaugurated with a vision of cutting energy uses by up to 4 percent per Industrial unit in India. Hence investing the saving in other resources to bring efficiency in performance of the unit.
With the help of the Bureau of Energy Efficiency BEE, Under the Ministry of Power, the term PAT has introduced. it is an Influential program which will help Industrial units in energy saving. It is one of the flagship programs which is getting operated with a view to providing an energy-efficient environment in the country.
