Energy Conservation
IMG_0140.JPGThe exciting journey to protect Mother Earth begins here!!

The world today faces an almost insurmountable Energy Crisis. As our demands on Mother Earth keep increasing more and more fossil fuels are being burnt. Excess release of Carbon Dioxide has lead to Global Warming that threatens our very existence. Encouraging children to conserve energy as one of the ways to 'fight back' is perhaps our best bet today.

REACHA has trained more than 2,00,000 children, parents and neighbours in Delhi since the year 2004 through the NDPL Energy Club in partnership with Tata Power and Delhi Government. The same project is currently being implemented in Mumbai Schools as The Tata Power Energy Club.

Children do two projects as part of this Project:
1. CONSERVE, and

These are school, home and neighbourhood based and are linked with the self audit and assessment of the individuals energy consumption patterns. The eventual objective is Demand Side Management (DSM) that encourages consumers to rationalize and reduce their demand for energy consumption, thereby reducing the pressure on over-exploitation of natural resources - especially the fossil fuels that meet up most of our energy requirements.

Samvedna members as well as guest visitors are requested to get started on Active Energy Conservation through DSM.As we all join hands, results will soon follow and begin to make a tangible difference to our fragile eco-systems. Details on how to get started are listed below.
Our commitment in Energy Conservation

World energy consumption has risen 45% since 1980 and it is projected to be 70% higher by 2030!

At the heart of our strategy is a simple and powerful idea: using natural resources much more productively - efficiently - is both profitable and better for the environment.

We can all adapt to the new energy world!
Schneider Electric has made this commitment and we can help you.

Schneider Electric provides integrated solutions for the residential market, buildings, Industry & Infrastructure, and data centres.
Now, you can build a long-lasting energy strategy for a growing performance, while preserving the environment.

Save more than the planet. Make the most of your Energy.

Although everyone can help the planet by turning off the lights or turning down the heat, this represents only a small fraction of CO2 emission.

Industry and building, on the other hand, account for more than half of energy consumption today.

Energy Efficiency is the quickest, cheapest and cleanest way to reduce energy consumption and achieve greenhouse gas emission to meet Kyoto targets.

Ambitious Energy Efficiency actions are feasible now: in most of the existing installations,
you can target up to 30% energy savings using the existing offer and technologies.

Did you know?

Due to the intrinsic efficiency of most power plants as well as losses in transmission and distribution electricity network, 1kWh of usage in a building requires 3kWh of production: for each energy unit saved in the building we save 3 times as many at production level.


When it comes to eco-friendly air conditioning, universal energy saving tips are pretty easy to follow. In general, you want to purchase HVAC equipment that bears the ENERGY STAR logo, schedule routine maintenance and conduct any necessary repairs.

While these more common tips can do wonders for lowering energy bills and reducing fossil fuel consumption, many residents of Phoenix want to go beyond the basics. In Phoenix, air conditioning is utilized more often than any other city in the U.S. As a result, dependence on fossil fuels has become a local concern.

You need to get a little more creative with energy efficiency in order to bear the fruit of eco-friendly air conditioning in Phoenix, Arizona. Learn how to conserve energy and keep those utility bills in check with a few secrets to more efficient Phoenix A/C.

Eight thousand street lights have been changed with energy-efficient lights in Amritsar municipal corporation through the route of ESCO.

Meeting held with Principal Secretary, Local Govt. Punjab for replacing street lights with energy efficient lights in all the 5 Municipal Corporations and 133 Municipal Committees in the state. Baseline data for existing street lights is being collected.


PSEB is in the process of procurement of energy-efficient lights to be replaced in all their offices, guest houses, colonies and thermal power station.

Agriculture pumping consumers are directed to replace bulbs with 20 watt CFL by 31.1.2008.


Considering the vast potential of energy savings and benefits of energy efficiency, the Government of India enacted the Energy Conservation Act, 2001 (52 of 2001). The Act provides for the legal framework, institutional arrangement and a regulatory mechanism at the Central and State level to embark upon energy efficiency drive in the country.

Indian Industry Programme for Energy Conservation (IIPEC) Under IIPEC the Task Groups for Textile, Cement, Pulp & Paper, Fertilizer, Chlor-Alkali, and Aluminium have been formed and the first meetings of these groups have taken place at Chhindhwada (M.P.), Beawar (Rajasthan), Ballarpur (Maharashtra), Mumbai (Maharashtra) and Hirakud (Orissa) respectively. Each Task Force is being headed by stakeholders and BEE is actively involved in organising the programmes. The Members from the industry participate in this project for sharing Best Practices, declaring their voluntary targets and benchmarking, etc. The voluntary targets undertaken by the Members from Cement and Pulp & Paper sector will alone result in saving of Rs.175 crores and Rs.51 crores respectively by 2005-06.
