Energy conservation key to sustainability, says expert

Samrala December 16

Ludhiana College of Engineering and technology (LCET), Katani Kalan, organised a seminar on power Saving awareness at its campus, where students presented their innovative views to save energy and participated in painting competition. Student were also shown videos on various natural resources to be used in daily lives. According to the students, electricity can be saved up to 20% - 30% by following simple steps such as promptly switching off the lights and fans when the occupants leave the room / hall, using slim tube lights as they give better light and consume less electricity than the filament lamps and avoiding opening the refrigerator frequently.

Vijay Gupta, chairman LCET, presided over the function and while speaking on the occasion said our traditional energy sources of coal, oil, firewood, etc were estimated to last for 20 -25 years, but the hike in demand would exhaust the resources within 10 to 12 years. Thus, it was necessary to adopt the alternative measures to adopt solar energy devices to save energy, which would reduce the pollution and save people from various fatal diseases.

Principal Jarnail Singh said it was high time for entrepreneurs and residents to tap non-conventional sources of power. Natural resources should be preserved and renewable energy sources should be utilised.

He also asked students to make efforts to propagate the message of using renewable energy sources as natural resources were not going to last long.
