Kirloskar Brothers (KBL) recently organised the 23rd ENCON awards to promote the importance of energy conservation. Dr Pramod Deo, Chairman, Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC), graced the occasion as a chief guest. At the award function, Dr Deo said, “Optimal utilisation of energy is a very critical aspect of any business and government has reinforced this with the launch of PAT schemes for eight energy-intensive sectors to increase the energy efficiency in India. There is also a vast need to establish a measurement system for electricity supplied to agricultural sector to identify the area for saving. In the absence of a measurement matrix, it is very difficult to calculate the losses incurred”.
