Speaker: Dr. Ruchi Tyagi
Senior Associate Professor, University of Petroleum and Energy Studies,
India


About Topic:
Energy conservation reduces the use of energy because we will burn less fossil fuel to produce, and if we are burning
lesser fossil fuels, we are putting fewer emissions in the air. Getting people to use energy more efficiently also helps
in reducing the carbon footprint. Administrative & Corrective Measures have huge energy-saving potential. There is
an immediate return on investment when we adjust building controls and/or users’ habits to reduce energy
consumption. The presentation will explain low-cost energy conservation measures in the residential sector on small
island nations giving an example of Trinidad and Tobago. The low-cost energy conservation measures (LCECM) are
not much explored for saving power in Trinidad & Tobago’s residential consumption and leading to the opportunity
cost. There is therefore a need for a policymaker approach to enable low-cost energy conservation measures (LCECM)
in the scenario of staggering residential consumption. The effect of electricity tariff on residential energy consumption
and the effect of consumption category on energy consumption is also discussed.
