Abstract
Energy conservation and efficiency improvement in the Indian power sector requires special attention since the sector has been suffering from a chronic supply shortage, lack of capital investment for new capacity addition and environmental problems associated with coal-based power plants. High auxiliary consumption and transmission and distribution loss further aggravate the problem. Possible potential actions of development: Possible areas and actions for the development of general knowledge programs should include: Organizing energy conservation and environment protection related training in colleges, universities and apprenticeship programs to cover all facets of energy management for industry and buildings, integrating energy conservation and sustainable development strategies into school curricula; developing curricula to establish the skills, knowledge and behavior of conservation and renewable energy; developing guidelines for relating curriculum to energy efficient design, engaging community organizations, non-governmental organizations and public interests groups in culture change, communication, education and implementation of conservation, facilitating energy auditing and benchmarking of existing buildings and providing access to resources to implement retrofits, establishing accessible and understandable means of benchmarking energy use, accelerated development of new technologies. Increasing conservation related training to industry, ensuring publicly funded institutions establish and maintain management reporting systems, which cover energy use, costs and savings potential, produce and broadcast programs and documentary films for television, using web-based systems to allow comparison of energy use with comparable buildings and estimation of potential savings, ensuring inefficient, older appliances are taken out of the market, their materials recycled and any toxic components managed, organizing seminars, workshops or summer schools for decision makers and experts related to other energy fields, producing audio-visual materials that illustrate existing solar installations, as well as future prospects for these technologies, publishing information, in the form of study articles and comprehensive, well documented reports, on solar energy and its prospects. Energy conservation and environment protection initiatives: The world scenario American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) highlighting roles of institutions, Bedford college in Southern England providing training for small businesses, Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation (CIPEC) developing comprehensive projects, Florida Gulf Coast University reducing operating expenses, Park Lane College in Leeds offering courses on climate change, The Wisconsin Environmental Education Board And The University Of Wisconsin - Stevens Point Utilizes Community Resources, Texas State Energy Conservation Office (SECO) encouraging energy-efficiency projects, University of Nimes in Southern France organizing programs for eco-citizens, York University encouraging green buildings Conclusions: Educational institutions also have an important role in educating and training the workforce, not only independently, but also as vendors to employers who seek outside providers of training. Educators and administrators are searching for new means to cut costs while increasing quality and efficiency on campus. This paper highlights different areas of energy conservation and environment protection. This paper also suggests different roles of educational institutions in energy conservation and sustainable development awareness.
