Organization Structure

Water Project Department

Street Lights

The street Lighting is decentralized with all the zones and the Street light Department at the Head Quarters co-ordinates all this activities. Further, street light section monitors of providing new street light poles on all road within AMC limits. Operation & Maintenance of all the street light poles are executed mainly through contracting system. This section also works for the installation of timers (astronomical, digital or analog based) as per the requirement.

Energy Efficiency Cell

Recently, AMC has started the Energy Efficiency Cell (E E Cell) to address energy conservation issues and thereby minimize the ever increasing energy consumption by all ways possible

Mission:

Continuous upgradation of process with energy efficient and eco friendly technology to minimize the energy cost without effecting output in services provided by AMC.

Functions:

  • To conduct internal audit to identify energy conservation opportunities for continual improvements on a sustained basis.
  • To study different energy conservation projects and submit feasibility report.
  • To find out the sources of procuring power for different services at lowest possible price.
  • For tariff related issues presentation in GERC to protect the interest of AMC.
  • Scrutiny and Monitoring of energy bills of different categories.
  • Renewable power generation projects like Solar power, Wind power and waste - to - energy projects.
  • Scrutiny of project files having more than 30 KW power loading w.r.t energy efficiency.
  • Promoting and propagating energy awareness among all the employees and citizens through IEC (Information, Education and Communication).

Activities:

  • Energy bill analysis was started by E E Cell to keep checks on the energy consumed by the organization. Tariff rationalization is one of the biggest measures from bill analysis through which appropriate tariff was applied to concerned electricity supplier.
  • Internal walk through audit by E E Cell at different AMC services such as pumping stations, office buildings, Hospitals, Public gardens etc. was started. In such visit reports, E E Cell suggests different Energy Conservation Measures like DSM (Demand Side Management), Power Factor Improvement, Replacement of old inefficient machineries and proper lighting.
  • In Reference to the different acts, E E Cell applied for electricity duty exemption in AMC's eligible public services permitted by the concerned act.
  • AMC's Energy efficiency cell establishes contacts with various government organizations related to energy sector such as GEDA, GUVNL and GERC.
  • To update the knowledge and being in touch with current market practices, energy efficiency cell attends seminars / lectures / programs related to energy sector.
  • E. E. Cell on regular intervals publishes energy conservation related circulars on AMC's public domain from time to time for the awareness of AMC's employees.
  • For new and upcoming projects having electrical loading more than 30 KW, E.E. Cell suggests different energy saving methods wherever applicable.

Summary of energy saving (Till May 2014) by AMC's E.E. Cell, is given below.
