A two days workshop on Energy Audit was organized by the Hope Foundation’s FAMT from 17th to 18th February 2020. Mr. Ajitkumar Datar, Certified Energy Auditor, INDESCO, Mumbai and Mrs. A.A. Datar, Lecturer, and Lawyer, Thane Law College, Mumbai were invited to conduct the workshop.
There is a tremendous increase in the usage of electrical energy in recent decades, but the electricity generation is insufficient to meet increasing demand. Hence, the Government of India has enacted the Energy Conservation Act 2001 to reduce the demand by conservation of energy measures. Energy audit has been made compulsory to energy-intense industries. During the audit; various appliances, equipment and systems like boilers, chillers, HVACs, fans, and blowers are studied; trialed and their efficiency is calculated. There commendations are made to improve energy efficiency which also reduces the environmental effects. Therefore, the Electrical Engineering Department initiated to create awareness amongst Electrical Engineering students through a workshop on Energy Audit.
The workshop was inaugurated by Prof. S. H. Mhabadi, Head of Electrical Engineering Department. He urged students to actively participate in the workshop and avail maximum benefits of the expertise of Shri Datar.
