Objective of Energy Conservation Day

National Energy Conservation Day is organized in India to create awareness among the public about the importance of saving and conserving energy. Also, it is also informed that how people can use the energy for its better use in the future. Apart from this, information is given to explain the true meaning of energy conservation and to minimize the wastage of energy. Its main objective is to reduce energy consumption and encourage people to use it efficiently.

How to conserve energy?

  • Everyone should reduce the use of AC or heater because both instruments consume a larger amount of energy every day.
  • CFL bulbs or smart lighting options can reduce energy consumption.
  • Water heating equipment consumes a lot of energy. It is advised that using less hot water can save a lot of energy.
  • Water conservation also leads to better energy conservation. Every year about thousands of gallons of water is wasted. Water conservation can be done by using 6 GPM fountains, very low flush toilets, tap aerators, compost toilets, etc.
