Energy efficiency assessment is an important tool to save energy and improve the financial gain of an Organization. Almost all the Small and Medium enterprises conducting energy audit in order to save energy and minimize energy consumption per unit product. The energy conservation is a cost effective with short payback period and modest investment. There is a bright scope of energy conservation in Pakistan in various sectors like Sugar. Textile, Cement, Fertilizer, Agriculture, Chemical process, Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical Industries. Pakistan is among the world’s top-10 sugarcane producers, the potential of producing electricity from bagasse is huge. Currently there are around 83 Sugar Mills in Pakistan producing about 3.5 Million metric tons of Sugar per year with total crushing capacity 597900 TCD.which cane produce approximately 3000 MW electricity during crushing season. In Pakistan most of the industries are still using the out dated technologies; inefficient equipment’s and are following inefficient operating practices. But some of the progressive industries have already using the up to dated and efficient technology and are reaping the benefits of reduced energy consumption. This paper shows the Comparison of specific energy consumption of inefficient machineries and energy efficient machineries in Chashma Sugar mill unit-1 District Dera Ismail Khan. Before implementation of efficient machineries bagasse consumption per ton sugar production was 2.35 Tons, Sugar losses in bagasse was 1.98 (pol % bagasse), steam economy was 48.2 % and bagasse saving was 70368 per season. After implementation of up to dated and energy efficient technologies the stated valves will be 1.75 Tons, 1.7 %, 35 % & 138613 Tons per season respectively. The overall energy saving is 25 % with a payback period of less than 03 years.
