The contours of our governing establishment owe their origin to sub-continental politics shaping their organization. Consequently we have no single Energy Ministry even though energy sufficiency remains a strategic goal. Somewhere in the inter-ministry co-ordination preoccupation, the nation has probably not had a desirable and coherent Energy policy or an efficient execution of the existing bouquet of independent policies. The downstream effect of the existing arrangement is that the Government is firefighting on the supply side and woefully falling short on the demand side. There is no holistic effort to improve operational efficiencies in production or achieving energy efficiency. Let us take the example of two ministries - Defence and Railways. They are the largest consumers of oil and also the largest landholders of the country. In the name of Energy Policy, there exists only a budgetary allocation from the Finance Ministry. There are no directions as to the desirable energy mix, efficiency measures and targets, technology adoption etc based on a national policy monitored at the highest level. Clearly a lot is required to be done. In my opinion, the Government should commence fulfillment of renewable integration and energy efficiency targets through implementation in own ministries. Defence and Railways have the scale and motivation since Diesel prices were decontrolled for them this January on account of their being bulk users. Defence ministry now has to meet all annual commitments after an additional budget cut ranging from 20-40%. A petro dollar saved is 60 rupees earned. The revolutionary method of proliferating energy efficiency, energy access and energy assurance lies in the adoption of the Microgrid approach in a nested manner. I solicit opinion of other members at this stage to obtain their views.
