Drive launched to identify energy losses in various sectors

The National Energy Conservation Centre (Enercon) has launched an awareness drive, aimed at identifying and quantifying the energy losses in industrial, transport, building and agricultural sectors, according to a statement on Tuesday.

An activity would be launched from Bahria University, Islamabad on Wednesday to help strengthen the industry-academia relationship, it said.

Coordinator of the campaign from ENERCON, Asad Mahmood, said that the awareness drive would also play an important role in setting up certified energy managers’ regime for designated energy consumers as per the Pakistan Energy Efficiency and Conservation Law, which is in its final stages of approval.

Mahmood said that the initiative has been taken through the Energy Conservation Fund to establish Energy Audit Tools Lab for demonstration and trainings.

Presently, there is very little knowledge of the subject among technical professionals but demonstration of the tools through trainings will help identify the energy losses in various sectors, he said.

He thanked the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC), which supported the initiative and recommended all the PEC registered 60 engineering universities to take suitable measures for inclusion in ENERCON’s energy audit sessions going to be delivered by the representative in respective universities, offering energy courses in mechanical, electrical, chemical, civil or any other relevant disciplines, according to the statement.

An energy audit is an inspection, survey and analysis of energy flows for conservation in a building, process or system to reduce amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output, it added.
