Abstract

With the various problems involved in the execution of power projects, the demand-supply gap of electrical energy has led to an energy crisis. As a result, electricity saving has become a top priority in the present context of the acute power shortage and the only viable solution in sight is energy conservation through use of energy efficient equipments rather than energy generation. Educational institutions are one place where electrical energy is wasted intentionally or unintentionally. Whatever may be the reason for the wastage, the potential for energy conservation is tremendous considering the fact the various equipments used on educational campus are illumination systems, ceiling fans, computers, water heaters, air conditioners etc and that too in large numbers. This paper not only estimates the total amount of energy that can be saved but also suggests suitable steps that needs to be taken to achieve the saving potential identified
