The Indian Railways has launched a portal to facilitate energy saving up to 15 per cent by the year 2020 through improved energy efficiency measures and to help the Railways in evolving future strategies for further intensifying energy conservation efforts.
The web-based electrical energy management system, RAILSAVER, developed by the Centre of Railway Informatics System (CRIS), an autonomous organisation under the Ministry of Railways, is part of the project for Improving Energy Efficiency in Indian Railway System being executed by the Indian Railways under the programmatic framework of UNDP through Global Environmental Facility funding of US $5.2 million.
The Ministry sought the support of UNDP in linking the RAILSAVER website with other railroad systems, so that best practices in energy efficiency and benchmarks for energy consumption can be shared and adopted by each other.
