The world supplies enough to meet the necessities of every man, but not the covetousness of every man. The following are hard facts as to why energy conservation is necessary.
The most used sources take thousands of years to form. Carbon, oil, and natural gas – to generate energy more rapidly than can be created.
The energy resources are restricted – the world’s energy resources are around 1% in India. But the world’s population is 16% in India.
Most of the energy sources we use are not reusable or renewable. 80% of the consumption of fuel is non-renewable energy sources. It is said that it is only for another 40 years that our energy resources will last.
We save money in the country through saving energy – approximately 75 per cent of our crude oil demands come from imports costing roughly Rs.1 – 50,000 crore each year.
People save money by conserving energy; picture how much money you’ll save when your LPG cylinder arrives in a week or your energy expenditures are reduced.
We are saving energy through saving energy – When efficient use of combustible wood, our need for fuelwood is smaller and so does our collection drudgery
Energy saved is generated by energy-saving one energy unit is equivalent to two energy units.
Sources And Importance
The energy sector is the major input in economic growth, and the energy availability and growth of a nation are closely connected. As energy is vital for the production process, increasing levels of energy consumption are needed for the process of economic development.
A high association exists between the gross national product (GNP) per capita and energy use. The higher energy consumption per capita of GNP countries is per capita.
(a) Commercial Energy,
Commercial energy or electricity source is sold at a price and customers must pay the price. Commercial energy consists of I the energy of fossil fossils (such as coal, oil, gas) and (ii) atomic hydropower (iii). Firewood, vegetable waste, and animal manure are non-commercial sources of energy. Since the sources are to be freely bought and not paid for them, they are considered non-commercial sources of energy.
Commercial sources of energy are known as energy sources, which are used for generating power and offered on the market for a certain price. Electricity, coal, and sophisticated petroleum products are the most commercially available forms of commercial energy sources. They are employed for the generation of power on the basis of the industrial, agrarian, transportation, and business development of many modern countries. Commercialized fuel is not only a source of financial advantage but also of several household duties of the general population in the well-stabilized industrialized countries.
Whilst certain non-commercial sources have been recently developed, prices are also levied in urban and sometimes rural areas. Most rural poor people in India rely on non-commercial energy sources. 23% of the energy utilized currently obtained from non-commercial sources. Commercial energy users include industry (507o), transport (22%), home (12%), and farming (9%), as well as businesses (1 per cent).
The ground, water, and air are not a gift of our parents but a loan of our own offspring, an old Indian adage defines this manner. We must therefore make conservation of energy a habit.
