  • Raising the set-point

    Raising the set-point temperature for cooling by air-conditioning from 21-22┬░C to 25-26┬░C can itself bring significant savings in the energy consumption for cooling. The users of the air-conditioned space should be more responsive to the ambient conditions and should be the able to regulate the air-conditioning depending the type of usage and out-door climatic conditions.

  • Excellent article. I learnt

    Excellent article. I learnt that out of 2700 MW power per day for Mumbai 1000 MW accounts for Airconditioning. Can't future Government offices be more Eco friendly and less power consumption?

  • Why always pin the

    Why always pin the responsibility on the government?
    Us citizens are equally if not more responsible for the mess we have created.I myself use the Ac for a maximum of 2 months though I live in Kolkata and that too not more than 4-5 hours day tops.But most of my friends keep their ACs perational for 3-4 months and for hours on end.
    With the arrival of "5star " ACs promising more energy savings,people have become even more careless about hight energy consumption.We have to change first.
