With a desire to know energy consumption, an energy audit of IIT Roorkee was carried out as summer intern project
by a team of 7 students identified on voluntary basis to work under the guidance of 5 faculty members from AHEC,
EED and MIED led by Dr Arun Kumar Head AHEC. This energy audit of the academic area, central facilities and bhawans
was conducted in IIT Roorkee during May - July, 2009. This also gave opportunities to improve the energy efficiency
of the campus. Reduction of energy consumption while maintaining or improving human comfort, health and safety were
of primary concern. Beyond simply identifying the energy consumption pattern, this audit sought to identify the most
energy efficient appliances. Moreover, some daily practices relating common appliances have been provided which may
help reducing the energy consumption.
The report accounts for the energy consumption patterns of the academic area, central facilities and bhawans based on
actual survey and detailed analysis during the audit. The work encompasses the area wise consumption traced using suitable
equipments. The report compiles a list of possible actions to conserve and efficiently access the available scarce resources
and their saving potential was also identified. We look forward towards optimization that the authorities, students and staff
would follow the recommendations in the best possible way.
The report is based on certain generalizations and approximations wherever necessary. The views expressed may not reflect the
general opinion. They merely represent the opinion of the team guided by the interviews of consumers.
