New Delhi: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) in association with Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), a Govt. of India Undertaking, today inaugurated two Kiosks at Metro Bhawan to promote and provide energy efficient LED bulbs to all employees of DMRC.

The Kiosks, set up as a part of the campaign to promote the Domestic Efficient Lighting Programme (DELP) undertaken by EESL, was inaugurated by Dr. Mangu Singh, Managing Director, DMRC and Dr. Ajay Mathur, Director General, Bureau of Energy Efficiency in the presence of Mr. Saurabh Kumar, Managing Director/EESL.

These Kiosks will be used to provide energy efficient 7W LED bulbs to around 8000 Employees of DMRC and adequate awareness will be provided on the need of adopting such energy efficient measures.  In addition to this, it is planned to set up 20 more Kiosks at DMRC residential colonies (6 in no.) and maintenance depots (8 in no.) spread across the network in the next few days.

“Through this collaboration, we are looking at setting up LED bulbs in our stations, colonies, offices and depots. We are making every effort to ensure we are energy efficient and work towards monetary savings and significant CO2 reduction. We are sure that the DMRC employees will benefit greatly with this scheme”, said Dr. Mangu Singh, Managing Director, DMRC.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Ajay Mathur, Director General of BEE said, “EESL is taking significant steps towards promoting energy efficient lighting in the city. Through this collaboration with Delhi metro, we can be proud of our efforts in propagating energy conservation, monetary savings and CO2 reduction. We are sure that the DMRC employees will benefit greatly through this best practice. ”

DMRC has recently signed an MoU with EESL for installing energy efficient LED lighting at all Delhi Metro stations, depots and residential complexes as a measure to encourage the use of environment friendly technologies in all spheres of its functioning. DMRC has already installed solar panels on many of its Metro stations to further reduce energy demand from fossil based energy.
