National Energy Conservation Week is from December 14 to December 20

The State government is organising awareness programmes on Energy Efficiency (EE) and energy conservation as part of the National Energy Conservation Week (NECW) 2019 that begins on December 14.

Key Points:

  • The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) had suggested to the government to take up EE and energy conservation-related activities during the week. 
  • It stresses the need for every government department to take up energy conservation on a large scale and achieve cost-effective power.
  • Even the common consumer in the State, local bodies and government institutions would benefit from EE and energy conservation.
  • The BEE has estimated that there was scope for saving 20-25 per cent against the total demand of around 64,000 MU in the State.
  • The exact meaning of energy conservation is using less energy by avoiding the unnecessary uses of energy. Using energy efficiently is very necessary to save it for future usage.
