ABSTRACT

The word today is “GO GREEN “with energy resources fast depleting their
conservation and optimum utilization are of prime importance. Through this we
intend to convey that we can not only increase our industrial efficiency but at the
same time help the environment and increase profits. However any task that sounds
so inviting must involve hard work that’s where we encourage the common public to
rise up & be aware of their own benefits & form a regulatory body which will force the
implementation of these rules. We can not alter the past but we can act in the
present to bring about a better future.

WHY MANAGE ENERGY???

THE SOURCES

In or day to day life, In industries , we use many energy sources,


like coal ,petroleum , natural gases ,wood and other biomass etc,.

These sources play an important role in our


life.

For eg: we depend heavily upon electricity


for a majority of our work in industries as
well as on the domestic front.

This electricity is produced in the thermal


power plants by burning of some or the
other of the above mentioned fuel sources.

These sources are limited i.e. they are


getting depleted at a rapid rate .

This means that they will get exhausted in the near future if their
usage is not controlled or optimized.

DEMERITS OF FOSSIL FUELS

Burning fossil fuels causes smoke which further leads to


environmental hazards like acid rains ,ozone depletion, smog
formation, soil erosion ,land slides . Overall it leads to global
warming and harms the environment at large. If not checked now
the existence of humans on this planet may be at risk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
COST Vs EFFICIENCY:

The industries today look forward to make profit neglecting the


environmental effects; however on comparison it is found that
the money they invest in setting up alternative environmental
friendly sources lead to increase in their profits. Eg: BURNING
1KG OF URANIUM PRODUCES ENERGY EQUIVALENT OF
2000TONS OF HIGH GRADE FUEL.

Similarly the investments involved in utilization of non


conventional sources like solar energy and wind energy may be
high. But after some period of time they give better returns in
terms of profit made.
HOW TO MANAGE???

ALTERNATIVE SOURCES

Fossil fuels are getting fast depleted. Hence we


need to look for alternative sources of energy.

Sources of energy like solar energy, wind


energy, tidal energy and other such non-
conventional sources need to be looked upon
seriously. ……..

INNOVATIONS

Its high time we started looking for innovative


ways to fulfill our needs of energy .

For this purpose today we are using fuel cells, L.P.G, C.N.G etc to drive our
automobiles. We also use photovoltaic cells to power our houses.
CREATIVITY

CHANGE IN DESIGN TO IMPROVE CONSERVATION OF


ENERGY

We need to alter the existing designs to make efficient


usage of energy.

For this purpose we may renovate the shape ,structure and


other parameters as required to suit our needs .

Earlier cars were block shaped however now we have cars


which are more aero dynamical in their designs thus reducing the drag ,
resulting in better millage.

CARBON CREDIT

Another way to manage our energy usage is


by carbon credits and carbon trading
system. This is prevalent norm of working
in the European and American markets but
is little known of in developing countries
like India.

Systems like carbon taxing and carbon


trading will force and encourage industries
to take up energy management, Thereby
reducing pollution.

This also creates a general awareness


about the environment and incorporates active participation.
CONCLUSION

“IF OUR CIVILIZATION IS TO SURVIVE WE CANNOT STAY


AWAY FROM ENERGY MANAGEMENT.”

Energy management is the need of the hour. Burning of


fossil fuels lead to environmental pollution.

This pollution is not limited to the environment only it has a


great deal of effect on human life too.

Everything on our planet is interconnected. While nature


supplies us with valuable environment without which we
cannot exist, we all depend on each other’s actions and the
way we treat natural resources

WHERE’S THE WORLD HEADING TODAY???

Today we are going from everything to nothing …..

Its our own fault that today we have to face environmental


crisis, Global warming is one of them. The temperature of
the earth is increasing and a day will come that the whole
earth will be covered by water and no land to survive . This
calls for the need of

“ENERGY MANAGEMENT”

“IT’S ONLY UPTO TIME NOW TO TEST THESE EFFICIENT EFFORTS &
ECONOMIC IDEAS”
Synopsis

The resources available to mankind are scarce & are fast depleting. However
due to our rapidly growing population &their need for better lifestyle,
industries are without involved in a race to generate products on a fast scale
without considering about the environment. Our forefathers had left us a
beautiful earth, but can we leave our heirs the same?

For this purpose we need to manage our energy sources in a better way. We
propose to do so by using alternative sources of energy rather than the
conventional ones. Modifying the designs to better suit the purpose .and using
creative methods to impose environment friendly practices like “carbon
trading “.
