For a nation to progress socially and economically, development of the industrial sector has to be given top priority. Expansion of the industrial sector means a requirement for more and more electrical energy. Requirement of more and more electrical energy means further depletion of the naturally available fossil fuel resources, which are in the danger of being completely exhausted by the second half of the present century itself. The demand-supply gap has been increasing over the years and with the need of the hour being industrialization, urgent steps need to be taken to narrow this gap. The major contributors to the increasing demand supply gap has been the use of inefficient equipment in the process involved or the outdated process itself. Industrial sector being the largest consumer of all the electrical energy available for utilization, has also contributed to the increase in the cost of electricity generated as of today. One of the simplest and cost effective methods in the long run is the use of energy efficient equipment wherever applicable in the process. This has resulted in a concept called demand side management (DSM). This paper brings out the DSM strategy for proper utilization of electrical energy so as to lead to energy conservation in an ice plant.
