  • In terms of composite production (in m3), Specific Energy Consumption during 2020-21, for CIL as a whole, was 2.72 kWh/m3 vis-à-vis 2.91 kWh/m3 during 2019-20 with an overall decrease of 6.53% as CIL registered 17.34% growth in OBR in 2020-21 as compared to 2019-20.
  • Total 7 nos. electrical energy audits were conducted by CMPDIL during 2020-21 for different subsidiaries of CIL as mentioned below:
    • CCL (05 mines) - Churi UG, Sayal-D UG, Topa OCP, Kargali OCP & Piparwar OCP
    • NCL (01 mine) - Kakri OCP
    • BCCL (01 mine) - New Akashkinaree Colliery
  • Estimated saving from energy conservation measures in above mines shall be around Rs. 48.39 lakh kWh per year with an estimated saving of Rs. 272.2 lakhs per year in power bill.
  • Use of LED lights - High wattage luminaries /conventional light fittings have been replaced with low power consuming LEDs of appropriate wattage in majority of the places for quarry lighting, UG mine lighting, street lighting, office and other work places, townships etc., thereby resulting in huge saving potential in electricity consumption. 98,522 LED lights of different wattage rating have been installed during 2020-21 in various subsidiaries with energy cost saving of approximately Rs. 8 crores.
  • Improvement of Power Factor
    • Almost all the areas of the subsidiary companies have maintained Power Factors as high as 95% or more during 2020-21 by installing capacitor banks of appropriate kVAR rating.
    • There has been remarkable saving from power factor improvement in the subsidiaries such as ECL - Rs 13.75 crores, MCL - Rs 2.01 crores, SECL – Rs 4.64 crores, NCL -Rs 3.07 crores & WCL-1.48 crores.
    • In other subsidiaries, the power factor improvement rebate has been adjusted in overall energy billing.
  • Overall utilization of Running CHPs (Annual Cap>1MTY) in 2020-21 was 77%. 173.2MT coal was handled through these CHPs in 2020-21 which has reduced CO2 emission and dust generation by way of reduced diesel consumption by tipping trucks & reduced road transportation distance.
  • CIL HQ building has been identified as “Building Energy Efficiency Project” (BEEP) with installation of roof top solar plant by EESL.
