Major energy consuming IT equipments
Computer Power Back-up Systems
Over sized UPS:
UPS systems have poor performance at loads below 25% and efficiency is lost in this process.
The generator should be loaded between 65% to 85%. The loading beyond 85% does not give any extra efficiency, but it decreases engine life.
Photocopiers: It uses the most electricity and do not have to be left on continuously. The equipment not only wastes electricity but also generates heat that leads to a stuffy office or added air conditioning costs.
General Lighting Systems
Use T-5 (28 W tube light in place of standard T-8 & T-12 tube
Use energy efficient flat belt instead of V-Belt to avoid transmission losses.
Expected saving will be 3 to 5 %.

How to get STARTED
This is the END of further IMPROVEMENT
We need to GO with an OPEN MIND
MIND is like a PARACHUTE
It works when it OPENS UP
Go for New Ideas on Energy Savings with an OPEN MIND
Measure Existing Loads
How we can reduce
Energy Measuring Equipment
The Operating Costs is What Counts
10 hrs/day, Rs. 5 per kWh
It is never too late to practice energy modesty and efficiency otherwise …
The history repeats itself scenario
