The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) has informed that, considering the current market trend, total connected load in India due to air conditioning will be 200 GW by 2030 and this may further increase as today only about 6% of households are using air conditioners. “As per our current estimate total installed air conditioner capacity is 80 million TR (ton of refrigerator) in the country, which will increase to about 250 million TR by 2030. Considering this huge demand, we can save about 40 million units of electricity usage every day,” it also said.
