Abstract—Pakistan today is facing a serious energy crisis due to the alarming depletion of energy resources and increasing demand of the industry, which has badly affected our industrial sector in general. No doubt, this situation has emerged globally, but this is also a fact that these energy crises in our industrial sector are due to orthodox processes, conventional infrastructures/buildings, inefficient HVAC systems, inadequate use of electrical and mechanical equipment, non compliance to standard inspection techniques which has resulted higher energy losses. This study reveal to the management of the factors, (i.e. housekeeping, control of operations and infrastructure), affecting the performance of AC plants of the spinning subsector of textile industry. Energy audits were conducted to collect data. The data was analyzed and it was concluded that along with the technological interventions we need to introduce green infrastructure in AC plants of spinning mills.

Index Terms—Energy efficiency, energy consumption, textile industry.
