    Energy is one of the important inputs for the economic advancement of any country. In the matter of

    developing countries, the energy sector assumes a critical importance in view of the ever increasing

    energy needs requiring huge investments to meet them. Enhancement of energy efficiency of an

    industry depends upon the measures taken for energy efficient equipment and system design and

    standard operating practices. Energy efficiency is achieved when specific energy in a specific product,

    process or areas of production or consumption is reduced without affecting output. Upgrading of energy

    efficiency will contribute to energy conservation and is therefore an fundamental part of energy

    conservation promotional policies.

    India has speedily risen in the list of global energy consumers. Increasingly dependent on larger quantities

    of fossil fuel, the country is currently the worlds third largest consumer of energy. Subsequently, it is

    also the fourth largest source of GHG emissions, contributing over four per cent of the 25.2 billion tonnes

    of CO2 released by the world every year. Of the 1.7 billion tonnes of GHGs emitted by India annually,

    the industrial sector accounts for more than 500 million tonnes. The Indian steel sector is one of the

    biggest contributors to this figure, emitting 70 million tonnes of CO2 per year.

    For its direct energy needs, the SRRM sector is heavily dependent on furnace oil, coal, or natural gas.

    This dependence is a drain on these small and medium sized units, forming over a quarter of production

    costs. To compound the issue, fossil fuel use also increases their emission load. While technical

    interventions to improve production efficiency and reduce energy costs are available, their existence is

    largely unknown to the SRRM sector. There is low awareness about energy efficiency and most units lack

    the engineering and technical manpower to adopt energy efficient practices.

    Still SRRM sector is not energy efficient due to lack of experience in accessing external funds, of

    incentives to cater to small-scale energy efficiency projects, Outdated technologies and practices, Low

    information and awareness levels on the developments in the sector, Inappropriateness of generic energy-

    efficient technologies (EETs) developed, Low research and engineering base and other institutional

    linkages. Need for Energy Conservation To harness the high energy saving potential and its benefits,

    bridging the gap between demand and supply, reducing environmental emissions through energy saving

    and to effectively overcome the barrier, the government of India enacted the Energy Conservation Act-


    The Act provides the much needed legal frame work and in institutional arrangement for embarking

    on an energy efficiency drive. Improving Energy Efficiency In Steel Rerolling Sectors The Centre for

    Engineering & Technology (CET), Ranchi, is the inhouse design engineering and consultancy

    organization of Steel Authority of India (SAIL). Under the UNDP assisted project for energy efficiency

    improvement in steel rerolling sector comprising mainly small and medium enterprises (SME), CET

    with SAILCON was entrusted for suggesting methods for improving energy efficiency for rerolling

    industries located in north and western part of India and again study for preparation of feasibility report

    for improving energy efficiency in SRRM sector.

    Globally growing consumption of energy has gone in the certain level with rising concerns about

    its conservation. Apart from being expensive and

    prone to sudden price fluctuations, the

    overwhelming majority of energy sources are non-

    renewable. Therefore, the conservation of energy is

    considered vital not just to avoid wastage of a

    precious resource, but also to slow down the rapid

    depletion of coal, oil, and natural gas resources.

    However, with the environmental movement

    gaining ground in the past 30 years, the

    ramifications of unsustainable energy use are no

    longer confined to economics alone. As the bulk of

    greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is a result of

    fossil fuel burning, conservation of energy is today

    intrinsically linked to the climate matter. As

    halting fossil fuel use is not an option without the

    viability of alternative sources, the only way to

    reduce energy use and manage emissions is

    therefore to maximize its efficiency.

    The Steel Projects core technical objective was to

    facilitate access to energy-efficient technologies (EETs)

    for steel re-rolling mills (SRRMs). The report surveyed

    SRRM units across clusters, observing technology and

    production processes and identifying opportunities for

    EET interventions. The report stated that SRRMs in

    India are typically of two types, each having its own

    technical specifications. Bar mills are ingot-/ billet-based

    rolling mills, with a typical capacity of 50100 tonnes

    per day (TPD). They are equipped with a roughing mill

    an intermediate mill, a finishing mill, rotary shearing,

    repeaters, and a thermo-mechanically treated (TMT) line

    with a cooling system (i.e., TMT cooling line, hot water

    pump, cold water pump, pinch roll, controls, and DC

    motors). the SRRM sector.

    The focus of energy-efficiency initiatives in India has

    been limited mostly to the large industries. There has

    been little progress in creating an energy-efficiency

    culture among the thousands of small and medium

    enterprises (SMEs) dotting the industrial landscape, even

    though it is an acknowledged fact that the nation can

    achieve tremendous energy savings through

    interventions in the SME sector (defined as enterprises

    with a cumulative investment of between ` 2.5 million to

    ` 100 million in the Indian context.

    The steel re-rolling mill (SRRM) sector too has largely

    been overlooked, with most energy-efficiency

    interventions in the steel sector being limited to the large

    integrated steel plants. The performance of the Indian
