As the industrial sector is developed for nation’s progress and also as the population increases, demand for energy also increases. To meet this ever-growing demand efficient utilization of electrical energy in the industrial process has gained importance in all aspects of energy usage. One way of efficient utilization of electric power is by adopting various measures that lead to energy conservation. 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. The person to control and coordinate the conservation measures is the energy manager. An energy manager must be capable of directing all personnel involved in the area of consuming electrical energy and this responsibility extends throughout the whole of the industry. This paper attempts to bring out the need, importance and necessary steps for energy conservation in addition duties and responsibilities of the energy manager, responsible for the industrial audit and conservation process.
