ENERGY CONSERVATION ALONG WITH GENERATION EXPANSIONPLANNING – A SOLUTION FOR ELECTRICAL POWER SHORTAGE OF TAMIL NADU, INDIAA. Bhuvanesh, S.T. Jaya Christa and S. Kannan
Electrical power is one of the most important factors for any development. It is a valuable input for any developing country like India to become a developed country. The demand for power is increasing day by day at a higher rate. Nowadays, the power shortage/failure has become a serious problem. There are numerous reasons behind this problem such as limited resources, low generation capacity, high demand,etc. It is hard to solve the power crisis quickly. One of the solutions to solve power crisis is to increase the electrical power generation. However, this will lead to overspending of natural resources and is harmful to the environment. It also takes more time to build new power plants. Moreover, it is not easy to reduce the demand due to high growth rate. So we try to attempt to find a trade-off or any third alternative to solve this problem. The solutions include Energy Conservation (EC), Generation Expansion Planning (GEP), etc. This paper aims to address the solutions through EC for this issue especially for Tamil Nadu, a state in India. The simple energy saving choices can be followed by a common man/society at home and industries are presented in this paper. The new innovative ideas for EC and ecological conservation are also presented.
