National Energy Conservation Day highlights the importance of saving resources. People understand this but often waste energy carelessly. This question is of increasing concern due to climate change and global warming.
The National Day was established in 1991 by the Ministry of Energy Resources of India. This is not surprising as the country is one of the largest energy consumers, ranking second in the world population-wise. India produces electricity on a large scale, but this does not prevent it from facing its energy shortages. To tackle this issue, power engineers are monitoring industry, infrastructure and its development, maintenance and delivery of resources to the subscriber.
The goal of National Energy Conservation Day is to minimize environmental pollution and provide services to the population by fostering conscious energy consumption, increasing the efficiency of production and developing alternative sources. The general public does not understand the technicalities, but they can still help the state in reducing its energy demands.
- Ancient Egyptian texts mention electricity, referring to the shocks felt from fish such as rays.

- The human brain produces electricity continuously, enough to power a 10W light bulb.
- Hospitals and health care facilities require the most energy.
- 1 billion people worldwide live without electricity.
