Details of Alternate Sources of Energy and Energy Conservation

Renewable energy is good for the planet and for people. Renewable energy is energy derived from natural resources that replenish themselves in less than a human lifetime without depleting the planet’s resources. These resources – such as sunlight, wind, tides, waves and biomass – have the benefit of being available in one form or another nearly everywhere. They are virtually inexhaustible. And, what is even more important, they cause little climate or environmental damage.

The alternative Energy Sources of Erode Sengunthar Engineering College is made for proper implementation and efficient utilization of renewable Energy Sources.

The college management has taken following measures for conserving the energy.

 Solar Energy:   

The Solar energy is any type of energy generated by the sun. Solar energy is created by nuclear fusion that takes place in the sun. Fusion occurs when protons of hydrogen atoms violently collide in the sun’s core and fuse to create a helium atom.

The College has been taken various efforts to utilize the solar energy in an effective manner.  In our college a 20 KW Solar Plant is installed at the Roof top of main building and the generated power interconnected with the Grid for the energy utilization in main block of the college.

The Solar Water Heater is used to generate the hot water by sunlight. The 16 number of Solar Water Heaters are utilized in Boys Hostel and nearly 5 number of SWH is utilized in girls hostel in our college. In addition to that the Solar street lightning system has been installed in various places in our college campus.

Biogas Plant:

Biogas is a renewable energy source produced by the breakdown of organic matter by certain bacteria under anaerobic conditions. It is a mixture of methane, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide. It can be produced by agricultural waste, food waste, animal dung, manure, and sewage.

In the college campus biogas plant has been installed to utilize the gas for cooking purpose in the hostel mess. The feed to the plant are the content of the organic waste from leftover and expired food from the hostels.

 Use of LED Bulbs / Power Efficient Equipment:

 A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source that emits light when current flows through it. Energy efficient lighting involves in replacement (or re-lamping) of traditional lamps (such as incandescent lamps & fluorescent lamps) with that of energy efficient such as LED lamps. With an estimated energy efficiency of 80-90% compared to conventional light bulbs, LEDs significantly reduces energy consumption, and thus help save money by lowering electricity bills.
