The Inaugural-Session of the programme, which was presided by the AMU Pro Vice Chancellor, Brigadier S Ahmad Ali (retd) and had Mr S P Garnaik, Chief General Manager, Energy Efficiency Services Ltd as the Chief Guest took place at the Assembly Hall of the University Boys Polytechnic.
Speaking on the occasion, the Pro Vice Chancellor went an extra mile to edify the gathering about the judicial use of electricity, thereby urging all those present in the session to spread the message through a word of mouth to the public at large.
The Pro Vice Chancellor said that as responsible citizens, we must engage ourselves in exercising energy conservation by switching off the lights and fans when not in use, by operating ACs at a temperature range between 22Ë?C to 24 Ë?C and by making use of LED lamps instead of candescent bulbs.
He also pointed out that that it is the collective responsibility of all of us to work for the cause of energy conservation.
The Chief Guest, Mr S P Garnaik, highlighted the difference between energy conservation and energy efficiency while delineating the different aspects of energy conservation.
Mr Garnaik further spoke on the high demand and low supply of resources due to annual increase in human population and consequent increase in the GDP, leading to an annual increase of three percent more electricity requirement per annum.
The programme started with the introductory note by Dr Mohd Rihan, Member-in-Charge (Electricity). He provided a detailed account of all possible initiatives that the university has taken up for the sake of Energy Conservation.
He also talked about the innovative techniques the university has adopted for achieving energy efficiency, in order to cut down on energy consumption and minimise the annual electricity bill as much as possible.
