Government of India has enacted Energy Conservation Act 2001 (EC Act) and developing various policies and strategies with a thrust on self-regulation and market principles with the primary objective of reducing energy intensity of the Indian economy.

In exercise of powers under EC Act 2001, Government of Telangana nominated Telangana State Renewable Energy Development Corporation Limited (TSREDCO) as State Designated Agency (SDA) to coordinate, regulate and enforce the provisions of the EC Act and implementation of schemes under EC Act 2001 within the state of Telangana in due consultation with Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), Ministry of Power, Government of India.
