Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the India Energy Week (IEW) 2023 in Bengaluru on Monday, 6th February. Held from 6th to 8th February, IEW will host over 30,000 energy professionals, 1000+ exhibitors and over 500 global leaders from the energy sector.

IEW is organized by the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas and is the first major gathering under the country’s G20 presidency. According to the PMO office, participants from the traditional and non-traditional energy industries, members of governments, and academia will come together to discuss opportunities and challenges presented by a global energy transition at the event.

During the event, the prime minister will not only interact with the oil and gas CEOs but also launch multiple initiatives in the green energy realm. Here are some of the notable projects:

  • Solar Cooking System
The twin-cooktop model of Indian Oil’s solar cooking system will get launched at the event. PM Modi will also flag off its commercial rollout.

Indian Oil had previously launched the single cooktop model which was well-received in the market. To offer more flexibility to consumers, the organization has now developed an upgraded version of the same. The patented system works on both solar and auxiliary energy sources.

As per the organization’s statement, if the system reaches 30 million households by 2025-26, then it will lead to LPG cost savings of about ₹1 lakh crore and reduce CO2 emissions by 50 million tonnes.

  • ‘Unbottled’ Initiative
Indian Oil has adopted uniforms made from recycled polyester (rPET) and cotton for retail customer attendants and LPG delivery personnel. Now, they are taking the initiative further by launching ‘Unbottled’ a brand for sustainable garments made from recycled polyester.

The organization is aiming to meet the uniform requirements for customer attendants at Oil marketing companies, non-combat members of the Army, etc.

  • E20 Fuel
PM Modi will launch the E20 fuel at 84 retail outlets of Oil Marketing Companies in 11 States/UTs. E20 is a blend of 20% ethanol with petrol. The ethanol blending programme and Biofuels programme launched in the country has resulted in a reduction of 318 lakh metric tonnes of CO2 emissions and foreign exchange savings of around ₹54,000 crores, as per the statement from PMO.
  • Green Rally
PM will also flag off the green mobility rally, which will see participation from vehicles running on green energy sources. This event aims to raise public awareness about green fuels such as E20, hydrogen fuels, flex fuels, CNG, etc.

Apart from these, the foundation stones of two Jal Jeevan Mission Projects will be laid at Tiptur city and Chikkanayakanahalli town of Karnataka. The projects will improve access to clean drinking water for the people in the regions.
