MPThe Madhya Pradesh government has ordered carrying out mandatory energy audit and energy conservation measures in all the government, semi-government, corporation and board offices of the state with a view to reducing consumption of power and checking its misuse. Instructions to this effect have been issued by the New and Renewable Energy Department to all the heads of Departments, Corporations, boards, Divisional Commissioners and Collectors.

All the departments have been asked to have an energy audit of their buildings done and implement the action plan chalked out for energy conservation. Energy audit of all those government offices and other establishments has been made mandatory; whose annual electricity bills for the year 2009-10 were more than Rs 5 lakh. The instructions draw attention towards the fact that more than 10 per cent increase is likely in the electricity bills of these departments in the wake of rise in power tariff in the near future.

A target has been set to keep the bills of these departments less than or equal to the amount of last year's bills. With a view to meeting this target, energy-efficient lamps, fixtures and other equipment should be used, an official statement said here.

As per the instructions of the state government, all the above departments will conduct an energy audit.

For this purpose a panel of energy auditors will be formed and made available by the Energy Development Corporation. Category-wise audit fee and its process have also been fixed. The audit firm concerned will have to accomplish the work within three months of getting the work order.

After the energy audit and its certification, the departmental heads will implement the suggestion mooted in the audit report. The works that need less expenditure will be done within one month and those requiring higher expenditure will be implemented in three months after obtaining sanction under departmental procedure.

The responsibility of strictly implementing the instructions within the stipulated timeframe will lie with the departmental head. The New and Renewable Energy Department has been made nodal agency for the compliance of these instructions.
