Welcome

National Energy Conservation Centre (ENERCON) is revolving towards an independent authority being developed under the ENERCON Bill 2013. ENERCON was established in 1987 and serves as the national focal point for energy conservation/energy efficiency activities in all sectors of the economy, namely industry, agriculture, transport, building and domestic.

The strategy adopted by ENERCON for promoting Energy Conservation spans a whole spectrum of activities, starting from identification of energy conservation opportunities and including technology demonstration, undertaking pilot projects, information and outreach, training and education, and development of plans and policies for promoting energy efficiency.

 

How to Conserve Energy

Industry Power and Gas Tips
  • Devise energy conservation plans to avoid energy losses.
  • Arrange for regular boiler/ furnace tune ups.
  • Arrange for Steam System Surveys.
  • Arrange for Electrical System Surveys.
  • Switch to energy efficient lighting.
  • Use high efficiency motors.
  • Use variable speed drives.

Building Sector Tips
  • Determine the orientation of the building on its site.
  • Construct room sizes appropriate from energy stand point.
  • Whitewash the rooms for better use of lights.
  • Put a wall section of 4 inch brick + 4 inch air space + 4 inch brick + 1 inch gypsum plaster outside whereas the air space should be filled with the following insulation.

  • By using TOD meters installed on agricultural tube-wells, farmers may avail 75 paisas rebate per unit while operating tube wells between 10pm to 6am.
  • Remember! Irrigation during day time results in vaporization of large quantities of water, which can be saved if crops are irrigated during night time.

Textile Sector Tips
  • Devise energy conservation plans to avoid energy losses.
  • Arrange for regular boiler/ furnace tune ups.
  • Arrange for Steam System Surveys.
  • Arrange for Electrical System Surveys.
  • Switch to energy efficient lighting.

Domestic Consumer Tips
  • Minimize the use of heaters.
  • Use solar panel geysers.
  • Repair gas leakages immediately.
  • Use daylight to the maximum.
  • Avoid shopping after sunset.
  • Avoid ironing between 5pm to 10pm.
