“DMRC being a life line of Delhi transport system, all the systems are being provided with redundancy, to ensure reliability and resiliency. Keeping in view India’s commitment to mitigate climate change, DMRC is striving to increase utilization of renewable energy in its metro system. However, PEER provides a rating system, to benchmark and evaluate these efforts and motivates the participants to strive for improvement. We are proud to be part of this rating system and wish all success to GBCI in their endeavors.” 

– Dr. Mangu Singh, managing director of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, India

DMRC’s Blue Line is the first transit project in the world and the first project in India to be PEER certified. The certification applies to the Blue Line covering 51 stations in India. More than 10 percent of the line’s non-traction load is met through onsite renewable energy and demand side management programs, such as automated controls for air conditioning, escalators and lighting loads, are allowing DMRC to effectively conserve energy.
