Brief Description

Description :

Energy conservation is one area of present national focus due to limited energy resources, acute power shortage and the ever widening demand supply gap. Studies conducted by various national and international agencies indicate that in industries, energy savings of 5% to 10% can be obtained by simple monitoring and an additional 10% to 15% can be achieved by monitoring and control. As most of the industries feel the pinch of increasing in energy costs day by day, they are looking for conservation and better utilisation of energy. An effective, reliable, and robust energy monitoring system is pre-requisite for achieving sustained energy efficiency. This provides quantifiable scientific base for continuous monitoring aids in evolving a goal and ultimately facilitates achievement of lower levels of energy consumption by means of automatic control with interlocking facilities. Central Scientific Instruments Organisation unit at Chennai, under the sponsorships of Department of Science & Technology (DST), Ministry of Power (MoP) and IndoGerman Energy Program (IGEP) developed different technologies to tap these energy saving potentials in industries.
