National Energy Conservation Day was observed  on 14 December 2014. The National Energy Conservation Day was celebrated every year in India by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE).

The celebrations was marked by giving out of National Energy Conservation Award by the Ministry of Power, Government of India. The award was given to companies from different industry groups for creating benchmarks in energy conservation.

India has an act on Energy conservation, The Energy Conservation Act 2001.

The Energy Conservation Act 2001 is implemented by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). BEE is a statutory body under Government of India. The act  envisages creation of cadre of professionally qualified energy managers and auditors with expertise in energy management, project management, financing and implementation of energy efficiency projects, as well as policy analysis.

Energy conservation means using less energy and avoiding excessive or wasteful uses. Energy efficiency, on the other hand, means using less energy while getting the same results. Efficiency is therefore a subset of conservation; one way to conserve energy is to use it more efficiently.

The concept of doing more with less offers an approach that seems both feasible and affordable.
