What is energy conservation equipment?

Scope for achieving energy conservation in the electrical power system can be identified mainly at:

  • Residential as well as commercial lighting which has signification energy usage.
  • Motor loads in industrial sectors.
  • Apart from these transmission and distribution sectors which are not actually a load but consumes energy in the form of losses.
  • Use of devices such as occupancy sensors/motion detectors, dimmers or intelligent centralized control equipment leads to a noticeable reduction in energy usage as it encourages use only according to necessary sufficient intensity and not when space unoccupied.
  • Advanced starters and power factors controllers with electrical motors achieve better energy conservation in industrial sectors.
  • Control of maximum demand and kVAR in the transmission and distribution system can be achieved by the installation of maximum demand controller and kVAR controllers.
