ENERGY CONSERVATION IS THE FOUNDATION OF ENERGY INDEPENDENCE
The primary energy demand in India has grown from about 450 million tons of oil equivalent (toe) in 2000 to about 770 million toe in 2012. This is expected to increase to about 1250 (estimated by International Energy Agency) to 1500 (estimated in the Integrated Energy Policy Report) million toe in 2030. This increase is driven by a number of factors, the most important of which are increasing incomes and economic growth which lead to greater demand for energy services such as lighting, cooking, space cooling, mobility, industrial production, office automation, etc.
Government of India has undertaken A TWO PRONGED APPROACH to cater to the energy demand of its citizens.
