Yet for the consultancy studies undertaken by RITES, it has been practicing to pursue the national goal of energy conservation and accordingly, suggestions are given to our clients for measures and methods to conserve energy.

I. Steps taken or impact on conservation of energy:

RITES and its subsidiary (REMCL) have planned various initiatives towards decarbonization of energy envelop. REMCL is in process of establishing about 3000 MW solar power projects for Railways on vacant railway land in the country. Successful implementation of these solar energy projects will reduce the Co2 emissions by about 40 lakh tons per year. Solar power plants have been installed on rooftops to generate green energy. Also, automation of chillers has been planned with VFD controlled pumps, which will lead to substantial conservation of energy.

II. Steps taken by Company for utilizing alternate source of energy:

Railway Energy Management Company limited (REMCL), the subsidiary Company of RITES Limited, has paved the way of successfully implementing 26 MW windmill plant in Rajasthan, 10.5 MW in Tamil Nadu for Southern Railway & 56.4 MW in Maharashtra for Central Railway. 300MW solar projects of Railways are under pipeline.
