~ Saved over 2.5 million units and sensitised close to 3.5 million citizens in 2015-16 ~
Tata Power's nationwide resource and energy conservation movement Club Enerji, has been relentlessly spreading awareness about resource conservation across the country, through its theme of national building. In line with this, the Club Enerji movement has successfully achieved a significant milestone of saving 17.25 million units of electricity by sensitising more than 12.8 million citizens across 11 locations in Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Pune, Bangalore, Lonavala, Maithon, Belgaum, Jamshedpur and Ranchi. This saving is equivalent to saving 17000 tons of CO2, which is equivalent to the amount of energy.
Since its inception in 2007, Club Enerji has been active in over 500 schools and has created 1337 Mini Clubs all over India. The club has now created more than 195216 Energy Champions and 241917 Energy Ambassadors among school students. In 2015-16, Club Enerji has saved over 2.5 million units and sensitised close to 3.5 million citizens.
In 2015-16, Club Enerji had launched an online module - http://www.clubenerji.com/ and users would simply need to register for a detailed access to it. The objective of this initiative is to reach out to a larger audience and impact a larger group of IT skilled children with a vision to transform by adopting a holistic and robust approach towards conservation. The online module helped Club Enerji reach audiences in newer countries like Philippines, UAE, US, UK and South Africa and cities like Chandigarh, Hyderabad and Chennai.
Speaking on the initiative, Mr. Anil Sardana, CEO & Managing Director, Tata Power, said, “We are happy and proud to reach this significant milestone in driving the message of energy conservation across the country. Tata Power has always been committed to the cause of saving energy and propagated resource conservation practices since its inception .I take this opportunity to thank all the students, schools and our Club Enerji team for supporting Tata Power in its efforts to save our planet and light up lives for the years to come."
As part of its initiatives, Club Enerji also organised activities for the school students like nature trails and visits to Tata Power Mahseer hatchery in Lonavala to increase awareness on its conservation projects and also provide practical knowledge about the environment.
Today, Club Enerji 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, there by mitigating emission of greenhouse gases that lead to global warming and climate change.
