Human beings use energy in their day-to-day activities, in one form or the other. All human beings work towards their nation’s progress. The development of a nation is also dependent on the availability of energy. This is because energy is one of the prime movers for industrial growth. As the nation marches its way on the path of economic development, consumption of energy is bound to increase over the years. Energy plays an important role in the operation of all industrial plants and is increasingly becoming the largest single variable cost in most industries. As the population of a nation increases, demand for energy also increases. To meet this evergrowing demand, energy conservation has gained importance in all aspects of energy usage. To conserve energy, we need to identify, where in the industrial process, energy could be saved ie; industrial output should either remain the same or should increase but with a reduced consumption of energy. This is possible if an energy audit is performed on the industrial plant. This paper attempts to bring out some of the basic steps in the industrial audit and conservation process.
