STANDARDS FOR QUALITY AND EMPOWERMENT
22nd and 23rd June, 2011
BUREAU OF ENERGY EFFICIENCY
“The strategy of adjusting and optimizing energy, using systems and procedures so as to reduce energy requirements per unit of output while holding constant or reducing total costs of producing the output from these systems”
“The judicious and effective use of energy to maximize profits (minimize costs) and enhance competitive positions”
Global CO2 emissions forecast, G.tons CO2 / year
Fossil fuels such as coal, petroleum, and natural gas make up the bulk of the India’s primary energy sources and, their consumption is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, leading to concerns about global warming if not used efficiently.
With India’s demand for energy growing, the need to adopt alternative approaches (like increased energy efficiency, renewable energy, etc.) to meet energy demand is also growing. Just in this respect, ‘Energy Management’ comes on the scene, which although is not new to India, yet its penetration and adoption is slow due to various reasons.
ISO 50001 does not prescribe specific performance criteria with respect to energy
IMPLEMENTATION AND OPERATION
MONITORING, MEASUREMENT AND ANALYSIS
CORRECTIVE AND PREVENTIVE ACTIONS
Reduce specific consumption of energy by 2% every year over next ten years
To lessen the burden on the environment by reducing energy on a continuous basis and conserve natural resources.
Implement the following fundamental practices related to energy consumption in our organization. These practices have to be taken up on a continuous basis.
1. Monitor energy and water consumption for the whole plant with section wise breakup
2. Establish specific energy (kWh or kCal or kL / ton or unit of production)
3. Develop an in house programme to sustain energy conservation activities in the plant.
