The case study analyses the results of PAT cycle I (Perform, Achieve and Trade) - a project started in 2012 by BEE to implement various energy efficient and sustainable solutions across major energy intensive industries including textiles. 

The objective is to assess the impact of PAT cycle I on energy intensity in the business as usual and PAT scenario, trend analysis for energy efficiency and quantification of energy savings in terms of TOE. The total energy savings target for textile sector in PAT cycle I (which included 90 textile units) was 0.066 million TOE by end of 2014-15; however, the industry showed significant improvement in the energy savings achieved i.e.0.13 million TOE.

The study involved collecting energy data from BEE and secondary research. Data analysis was carried out and feedback from major stakeholders in the PAT cycle I was obtained to analyse the benefits and challenges of these measures.  Data analysis results showed that the total energy consumption in the textile sector in 2030 would be 1.98 million TOE without the impact of PAT but under PAT scenario, it would be 1.69 million TOE.
