The National Energy Conservation Day had been celebrated in India since 1991 but in 2001 by The Bureau of Energy Efficiency working under the realms of the Government of India regulate different types of policies regarding the use of energies all over the country. For the first time, this day was formally announced to celebrate on 14th of December under the India Energy Conservation Act.
National Energy Conservation Day in India is celebrated to aware people about the importance of energy as well as saving or conserving the more energy by using less energy.
The exact means of energy conservation is using less energy by avoiding the unnecessary uses of energy. Using energy efficiently is very necessary to save it for the future usage. Energy conservation should be rooted in the behaviour of every human being to get more effect towards the plan of energy conservation.
Everyone can save the energy by practising very easy methods in daily life. This can contribute for the future generation in huge amount. In our daily life, especially during the day time we can turn off the unnecessary lights and use the natural lights or sunlight we have. For shaving, washing hand, brushing teeth, bathing we can turn off the water to save the water energy also. If we don’t need it then we can unplug the unused electronic devices, we can shut down our desktop, if we don’t feel sweat, we can turn off the air conditioner also. We can stop to dry full loads of laundry and can use the natural air instead and can skip heat drying process for dishwasher and many others.
To make the celebration of National Energy Conservation Day meaningful, we must aim at the following objectives;
- It is celebrated to send the message of importance of conserving energy in every walk of life among people.
- Promoting the way of process of energy conservation by organizing a lot of events such as discussions, conferences, debates, workshops, competitions and etc all through the country.
- Promote people for less energy usage by neglecting the excessive and wasteful uses.
- Encourage people for efficient energy use in order to decrease the energy consumption and prevent the energy loss.
