Energy efficiency can be attained in homes, businesses and different modes of transportation through efficient use of energy.

This entails minimum usage of energy sources to provide the same level of energy service similar to the fossil-fuels generated energy.

Fossil fuels such as coal, crude oil and natural gas are pre-dominantly used for generating electricity further used for lighting, heating / cooling and industrial production that emit greenhouse gases (GHG) such as carbon dioxide, methane, etc.

GHG can have harmful effects on environment and life in general due to which energy efficient methods are considered to reduce GHG emissions and have been adopted in across countries including India.

Energy efficient methods are also considered to improve productivity of various appliances and equipments in residential, commercial and industrial institutions.
