The main objectives of project R7413 (Mechanisms to Improve Energy Efficiency in Small Industries) are to promote mechanisms to increase the adoption of energy efficient technologies and practices in the case of one small scale industry sector in India and Ghana. The sector chosen in India is the ceramic sector. The focus of the work has been in one large cluster of ceramic firms in Khurja, India.
This section first offers some analysis of the previous studies undertaken in the Khurja pottery sector. Two different approaches to improve the overall efficiency and the quality of the pottery units in Khurja are discussed and the broad areas for improvement identified. The steps that need to be taken in order to prepare for change are outlined followed by a detailed description of all the recommendations to improve energy efficiency in the Khurja pottery sector.
