''With the aim to augment its sustainability initiatives, The Oberoi Group has signed an MoU with Energy Efficiency Private Ltd (EESL), a joint venture of four PSU's under the Ministry of Power,'' a statement said.

The EESL will provide technical support and extend its procurement advantage through its partners across the energy sector.

The potential energy efficiency measures will include lighting, electric motors and pumps, air-conditioning, ventilation systems, indoor air quality systems, and electric vehicles along with charging infrastructure.

EESL Executive Vice Chairman Saurabh Kumar said energy efficiency is becoming central to the sustainable growth of businesses.
