~Creates 2.5 lakh Energy Champions and 2.9 lakh Energy Ambassadors
around the country since inception~
'Club Enerji', Tata Power's nationwide resource and energy conservation movement has been relentlessly spreading awareness about resource conservation across the country with a strategic focus on national building throughout the years. Continuing with this momentum, Club Enerji has cumulatively sensitised over 3.5 million people across six cities- Mumbai, New Delhi, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Pune & Bangalore and saved around 4 MUs of electricity in FY17-18. The club enerji program was also launched in new city Ajmer, Rajasthan last year.
Since its inception in 2007, Club Enerji has been active in over 500 schools and has created approximately 2,017 Energy School Clubs all over India. The club has now created around 2,55,783 Energy Champions and 2,98,468 Energy Ambassadors among school students. Club Enerji program has also completed 10 years.
Commenting on this success, Mr. Praveer Sinha, CEO & Managing Director, Tata Powersaid, "We, at Tata Power are extremely happy and proud to initiate the 'Club Enerji' movement and reach a significant milestone in driving the message of energy conservation across the country. We would like to thank all students, schools and our team for being extremely supportive in helping us save our planet and promise to light up lives with our efforts for the years to come."
As a part of its initiatives, 'Club Enerji' has also organised activities for school students like energy conservation rallies, Street plays, quiz contests, poster competitions and visits to Tata Power Mahseer hatchery in Lonavala. These have largely helped in raising awareness on their conservation projects and also provided practical knowledge about the environment. Today, it has become a holistic movement to save energy and natural resources. 'Club Enerji' banks on the youth of the nation and has essentially worked towards curbing energy wastage, thereby mitigating emission of greenhouse gases that lead to global warming and climate change.
Tata Power's 'Club Enerji' will continue encouraging children to be responsible citizens by shaping them into proactive leaders of the future through their various initiatives.
