K.R. Rao, in Energy Developments: New Forms, Renewables, Conservation, CONCLUSIONS. Energy conservation in buildings especially in high rise office and commercial buildings is a must for all countries including those situated in warm climates. Energy savings of the order of 15 to 20 percent are possible through conventional building designs aimed at minimising the external heat gains.

The author presents his extensive research on climate control, particularly in the Middle East, to demonstrate the advantages of many locally available building materials and traditional. The energy conservation activities play a pivotal role in the substantial reduction in energy consumption at the consumer end, this is a best of kind adaptation program for the climate change as.

  Energy Conservation Dept Of Electrical Engineering 11 ENERGY CONSERVATION IN INDUSTRY AND OTHER PLACES: Energy conservation is the practice of decreasing the quantity of energy used. It may be achieved through efficient energy use, in which case energy use is decreased while achieving a similar outcome, or by reduced consumption of energy. Its purpose is to help architects, builders, and developers construct energy-efficient homes in hot humid climates like the Pacific Rim Countries, and to allow occupants of these homes to enjoy enhanced comfort without reliance on mechanical air-conditioning systems. Two important factors are addressed in this book. Energy conservation is the effort made to reduce the consumption of energy by using less of an energy service. This can be achieved either by using energy more efficiently (using less energy for a constant service) or by reducing the amount of service used (for example, by driving less). Energy conservation is a part of the concept of eco-sufficiency.

During this interview Harley commented on ' "the first time many people give any thought to replacing a refrigerator is when it stops working/5(14). "There are so many books about sustainable energy and alternative energy on today's market that one might wonder about the need for yet another; but Sustainable Energy - Without the Hot Air offers something different - and that's a notable achievement in a genre overloaded with too many revamps using the same approach." —D.
