Pumped Storage system utilises surplus grid power available from thermal power stations or other sources to pump up water from lower to upper reservoir and re-produces power during peak demand when there is scarcity of power.
Pumped Storage mechanism stabilises grid frequency, meets peak demand instantly and increases PLF, efficiency & life of thermal plants. It also reduces damage to industrial equipment. It is techno-economically favourable than gas turbine plant.
See details of the following Pumped Storage Projects. Read more..
Energy conservation refers to reducing energy consumption through using less of an energy service. Energy conservation differs from efficient energy use, which refers to using less energy for a constant service. For example, driving less is an example of energy conservation.
The Central Government may issue the energy savings certificate to the designated consumer whose energy consumption is less than the prescribed norms and standards in accordance with the procedure as may be prescribed.
