Abstract

One positive impact of the 1973 oil crises has been the concerted effort across the world to reduce energy consumption through energy use efficiency improvements. Improving energy efficiency ensures the objective of conserving energy and thus promoting sustainable development. Recognition of this fact has now appeared in terms of including the aim of improving efficiency as an important component of electrical energy policy in all the countries across the globe. Conserving electrical energy through energy efficiency measures can meet the high challenge of increasing energy demands at reasonable costs in a sustainable manner. Moreover, improving energy efficiency also has the potential of reducing the environmental and health threats associated with the use of hydrocarbons and of encouraging clean energy systems. Improving energy efficiency is expected to reduce energy demand through its rational use in the end-use devices; every unit of energy input consumed will bring in greater amount of useful energy output. Such improvements can manage energy demand in better ways and contribute highly to a better environment. The present study is a documentation of the current pattern and trend of energy efficiency in the global, Indian and Kerala scenarios.
