About the Program

Energy Conservation, in reality, deals with the 3 areas of

  • Avoiding wastes
  • Using Energy Efficiently and
  • Use of Renewable Sources of Energy

Efficient use of Energy requires major attention, as we are still one of the countries with high levels of Energy Consumption per Unit Production of GDP compared to the Global averages.

Of the 3 End use Forms of Energy, namely, HEAT, FUEL and ELECTRICITY, Electricity comprises of almost 60% of the Total Energy usage. Among the Major uses of Electrical Energy, use of Energy through Motors conversion to Mechanical Energy- forms almost 70 to 80% of the total use. Though it is normally assumed as Motors consuming most of the Energy, the FACT is that the Motor Driven Systems comprising of the Motors, the Driven Equipments and the Controls, together decide on the total consumption of Energy. It is found that with the considerable Developments in the areas of Efficiencies of Motors and all kinds of Driven Equipments and the advancements and Applications and cost effectiveness of Controls like Variable Frequency, Variable Voltage and the combinations, provide ample scope for considerable Energy Savings through INTEGRATED APPROACH, addressing all the three areas keeping in mind the actual Process requirements. This Workshop aims to deal with the latest Advancements in these areas and the vast potentials of Energy Saving available.
