ABSTRACT:

“Every Watt is precious”

Energy lies at the core of all economic activity & controls a country’s rate of growth and development; the type and volume of our energy usage determines our environment. In the case of the developing countries, like ours, the energy sector assumes a critical importance in the view of the ever increasing energy needs requiring huge investments to meet them. If India is to achieve the targeted growth in GDP, it would need commensurate input of energy, mainly commercial energy in the form of coal, oil, gas and electricity. However, India’s fossil fuel reserves are limited. Among the various strategies for meeting energy demand, efficient use of energy and its conservation emerges out to be the least cost option in any given strategies, apart from being environmentally benign.

In our effort of writing this paper we hereby want to put forth the Scope for Energy Conservation both in Residential as well as in the Non Residential areas, ‘Energy Efficient Technologies’, their financial analysis & want to prove the fact that use of some of these new technologies and awareness of the current energy scenario can help us to save 10-30% of the energy which we use.

This way we can save ourselves a good amount of money and also electricity for our country.

IMPORTANCE OF ENERGY CONSERVATION & MANAGEMENT TO INDIAN SCENARIO:

A McKinsey report released in August 2009 provides a projection of the Indian economy by 2030: real per capita GDP will climb to US$ 2700(Five times the 2005 level), demand for power will rise to 3870TWh (from 700 TWh in 2005). India’s gross energy demand will shoot up to 1.8 btoe per year (from 0.5 btoe in 2005), making it the third biggest global energy consumer after US & China.

In a scenario where India tries to accelerate its development process and cope with increasing energy demands, conservation and energy efficiency measures are to play a central role in our energy policy. A national movement for energy conservation can significantly reduce the need for fresh investment in energy supply systems in coming years. It is imperative that all our efforts are concentrated to realize this potential. Energy conservation is an objective to which all the citizen in the country can contribute. Whether a household or a factory, a small shop or a large commercial building, a farmer or an office worker, every user and producer of energy can and must make this effort for his own benefit, as well as that of the nation.

INITIATIVE BY GOVT. OF INDIA TOWARDS ‘ENERGY CONSERVATION’:

Govt. Of India enacted ‘Energy Conservation Act-2001’ which provides for institutionalizing and strengthening delivery mechanism for energy efficiency services in the country and provides the much-needed...
