EESL through its Building Energy Efficiency Program (BEEP) will assist The Oberoi Group in implementing several well-established energy-efficient initiatives, including clean energy systems across its properties.

The potential energy efficiency measures will include lighting, electric motors & pumps, air-conditioning, ventilation systems, indoor air quality systems and electric vehicles along with charging infrastructure.

Speaking about this partnership, Saurabh Kumar, Executive Vice Chairman, EESL said, “Energy efficiency is becoming central to the sustainable growth of businesses. EESL has pioneered energy efficiency improvement across India and empowered millions of people through its innovative schemes.
