With the present situation of energy crisis, fossil fuels (coal, oil & natural gas) potential is unable to meet the current energy demands and as we know that energy is the life line of growth in any economy that’s why energy saving is very important. Our country’s per capita energy consumption is 325.1 million tones oil equivalent which is very low as compared to the industrialized countries but the energy intensity is very high.
We can easily narrow the gap between demand & supply and decrease the energy intensity in each sector by simple approach towards energy conservation and efficiency through energy efficient technology and housekeeping habits.
In India major energy intensive sectors which are as follows having an average potential of 20 – 25% of energy savings. The sector wise saving potential would be Industrial (up to 25 %); Agriculture Sector (up to 30 %); Transport, Domestic Commercial and Municipal Sector (<20 %)
Energy savings can be done by each sector in the following manner
|Sl.No||Sector||Stake Holders||Energy Saving Steps|
