Grundfos India and NDTV Launch Mission Energy

MUMBAI: Grundfos Pumps India Pvt. Ltd (Grundfos India) and NDTV announced the launch of ‘NDTV Grundfos Mission Energy’, a campaign to create awareness about the importance of saving energy and to provide ideas to conserve energy. The campaign aims to draw attention to the power of individuals in creating a cleaner and greener future. Mission Energy is supported by AEEE as Energy Efficiency Partner and CII as Knowledge Partner.


In order to meet India’s growing energy demand, it is important to not only increase electricity-generating capacity, preferably through renewable sources but also use energy efficiently. In the light of this, ‘NDTV Grundfos Mission Energy’ will actively engage with the country's leading experts, policy makers, conservationists, leading industry voices and NGOs to highlight the growing requirement for energy efficiency in India. The campaign will also reach out to the general public to create awareness on how, at an individual level too, one can contribute towards energy conservation.


‘NDTV Grundfos Mission Energ will raise awareness about these issues that affect each one of us and help chart out a roadmap to a sustainable future. The campaign will also call attention to the need for stringent energy efficiency norms and encourage corporates to develop and promote energy efficient products.


Speaking about the campaign, Vikram Chandra, Group CEO, NDTV said, “Over the years NDTV’s programming has brought focus on a number of social issues through a multitude of campaigns. This is yet another attempt by us to create awareness around energy conservation. Through this campaign we aim to highlight viable solutions that can be adopted, both at an individual level as well as across the country, and inspire people to join us to work towards a cleaner, greener future. We are glad to partner with Grundfos in the 'Mission Energy' initiative to promote energy efficiency across the Nation.”


Partnering NDTV in the mission, Ranganath N. K., Managing Director, Grundfos India, “At Grundfos, sustainability is at the core of our value system. As a reflection of this mindset, we are involved in many energy conservation initiatives. Mission Energy is an attempt towards promoting energy efficiency at all levels in the country. We are happy to partner with NDTV for this cause.”


As part of this inclusive campaign, NDTV in association with CII will conduct the Mission Energy Challenge to demonstrate how an organization/individual through small but focused efforts can make a difference to the Planet Earth. A hundred participants across four user categories: manufacturing companies, commercial buildings, educational institutes and residential homes would be involved in this challenge. To register visit, applications close on 20th February.     

Mr Jamshyd N Godrej, Chairman, CII-Godrej GBC said “We are confident this Mission will go a long way in ushering in a new chapter in Encon [sic energy conservation] movement in the country and enhance present level of awareness and encourage Millions of Indians go the Greener way.”


Dr. Koshy Cherial, President (Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy) said, “Energy efficiency is critical to India's energy future. In an era of economic uncertainty the country has to prioritize sustainable consumption patterns. For this, it is essential to mainstream investments and operations aiming at integrating energy efficiency within all sectors of the economy. To achieve this goal, AEEE promotes energy efficiency policies & process and mobilizes stakeholders for a market transformation in India. We are happy to partner with NDTV in catalyzing India towards this goal through the Mission Energy programme.”
