  • This is the Pie Chart for sources of energy in India. Which source contributes the maximum energy. Almost all coal, nuclear, geothermal, solar thermal electric and waste incineration plants, as well as many natural gas power plants are thermal. However the elements required to produce this kind of energy are mostly fossil fuels which are. Energy can therefore be derived from 2 sources
  • Why do we need to conserve? Because the resources are depleting. We have become greedy. We do not use resources prudently…we waste a lot. There is one more reason for why do we need to conserve. Because use of too much of energy is disturbing the ecological balance of our planet. It is giving rise to global warming. Have you all heard about global warming? What is it?
  • An appliance with a power consumption of 1kW would consume 1 kWh (1 kilowatt hour or unit of electricity) every sixty minutes. Calculate the how much the appliance costs to run per hour with the simple power calculation below. unit cost x power consumption in watts divided by 1000

    1. 1. ENERGY CONSERVATION PROGRAM A Tata Power Initiative We can make a difference
    2. 2. The Energy Crisis <ul><li>Rising demand </li></ul>
    3. 3. <ul><li>Increasing Carbon Emissions </li></ul>
    4. 4. Limitations – Fuel Resources <ul><li>Based on current projections, within the next 75 years (at current rates of consumption), the extractable </li></ul><ul><li>coal, </li></ul><ul><li>oil </li></ul><ul><li>natural gas reserves </li></ul><ul><li>nuclear fuel </li></ul><ul><li>would be depleted </li></ul>
    5. 5. <ul><li>What is a Carbon Footprint? </li></ul>A carbon footprint is the measure of the amount of greenhouse gases, measured in kilograms of carbon dioxide emitted by human activities
    6. 6. Some tips to reduce carbon footprints …. <ul><li>Switching off five 60 W lights in hallways when you don’t need them – saves about 270 kg CO 2 per year. </li></ul><ul><li>Replacing 5 ordinary light bulbs in lamps that you use around 5 hours a day with (CFL) bulbs - saves about 250 kg CO 2 per year </li></ul><ul><li>Switching off your air conditioner every day for 4 hours – saves about 300 kg CO 2 per year. </li></ul>
    7. 7. Global Utilization of Resources for Power
    8. 8. Need for Energy Conservation
    9. 9. Sources of Energy in India Utilization: Renewable energy – 5% Non-Renewable Energy – 95%
    10. 10. Power Demand Supply Gap INDIA Conserving energy is an effective solution to 3 major problems that we face : <ul><li>Demand – 7,74,324 MW </li></ul><ul><li>Supply – 6,89,021 MW </li></ul><ul><li>Deficit – 85303 MW </li></ul><ul><li>The Deficit is showing a growing trend. </li></ul><ul><li>* In Maharashtra, the deficit is approx. 4000 MW. </li></ul><ul><li>* In Mumbai , the deficit is approx. 900 MW. </li></ul><ul><li>Increased Load Shedding </li></ul><ul><li>Depletion of Energy Reserves </li></ul><ul><li>Global Warming and Climate Change </li></ul><ul><li>* </li></ul>
    11. 11. <ul><ul><li>Energy Conservation </li></ul></ul>What is Energy Conservation? Saving Improving efficiency <ul><ul><li>Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving are TWO aspects of Energy Conservation </li></ul></ul>
    12. 12. <ul><li>Solar Panels for water heating – an indicative study </li></ul><ul><li>A typical building of 30 flats would consume approx. 10800 kW-hrs per month by using geysers for heating water. The cost involved would be approx. Rs. 50000/- per month. </li></ul><ul><li>Installing a solar panel solely for heating water would cost approx. Rs. 4,50,000/- </li></ul><ul><li>The operational & maintenance costs would be minimal. </li></ul><ul><li>Thus, the investment can be offset in terms of savings on energy bills in a span of 9 months. </li></ul><ul><li>And this is an environment friendly process that would REDUCE CO2 EMISSIONS BY 49 TONS in a year. This is the equivalent of planting about 165 trees. </li></ul>Employing cleaner technologies
    13. 13. <ul><li>Plan and implement behavior change projects associated with environmental stewardship and outreach events community </li></ul>Need for measurable impact Into Action
    14. 14. <ul><li>Unit of Electricity: One unit of electricity is exactly equal to 1000 watts of power used for 1 hour </li></ul><ul><li>Note the power consumption given on appliance label in watts or kW (1000 watts). </li></ul><ul><li>Calculate the how much energy the appliance consumes by the formula </li></ul><ul><li>Energy consumed (kW-hrs) = Power (kW) x Time used (hours) </li></ul><ul><li>Cost (Rs.) = Energy consumed (kW-hrs) x Tariff (Rs.) </li></ul>Know your Electric Bill
