Energy Efficiency Efficient use of energy to obtain desired outputs that involves using alternative technologies operating at lower energy inputs for same purpose.
Energy Assessment A procedure to assess the power consumption with respect to each source. Basic steps: 1. Determining the amount of energy being consumed for each process/activity. 2. Determining the scope for energy savings and the cost it takes to implement the activities.
Energy Equation Energy Gap = Supply – Demand Total energy production and consumption, (quadrillion BTU) Source: EIA’s Annual Energy Outlook, 2007
Opportunities to Reduce Energy Consumption Proper selection of optimal systems. Adequate maintenance of energy using systems. Understanding energy costs.
Energy Efficiency Act 2007: Enhance Energy Efficiency Optimize energy efficiency. Improve environmental performance through advanced technologies. Train engineering and research students to conduct energy assessments.
