Importance of energy conservation

The importance of energy conservation is explained.

Importance of Energy conservation

The earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs but not every man’s greed said Gandhiji. Hard facts on why energy conservation is a must are outlined below.
  • We use energy faster than it can be produced - Coal, oil and natural gas - the most utilised sources take thousands of years for formation.
  • Energy resources are limited - India has approximately 1% of world’s energy resources but it has 16% of world population.
  • Most of the energy sources we use cannot be reused and renewed - Non renewable energy sources constitute 80% of the fuel use. It is said that our energy resources may last only for another 40 years or so.
  • We save the country a lot of money when we save energy - About 75 per cent of our crude oil needs are met from imports which would cost about Rs.1, 50,000 crore a year
  • We save our money when we save energy - Imagine your savings if your LPG cylinder comes for an extra week or there is a cut in your electricity bills
  • We save our energy when we save energy - When we use fuel wood efficiently, our fuel wood requirements are lower and so is our drudgery for its collection
  • Energy saved is energy generated - When we save one unit of energy, it is equivalent to 2 units of energy produced
  • Save energy to reduce pollution - Energy production and use account to large proportion of air pollution and more than 83 percent of greenhouse gas emissions

An old Indian saying describes it this way - The earth, water and the air are not a gift to us from our parents but a loan from our children. Hence we need to make energy conservation a habit.

Dear Sir,

In India BEE is conducting Energy manager examination from last 10 yrs. What those Energy managers are doing as on today? As still Energy Act is not mandatory in India. What is purpose of those examinations & giving certicates to those members. Please clear my doubt.

Right,
We have to use Renewable energy as much as possible instead of Non renewable energy, so that we can conserve Non renewable source for long time. we must have to save electricity which generated from Non renewable source and think about more usage of renewable energy because this energy is continuously available on long time and clean energy.

In definition,energy cannot be created nor be destroyed. Though , preset situation we should looks about energy conservation
programmed It is good new's the government is taken consideration about energy conservation. We should support this .
