At a time of crisis and chaos, managerial and coordinating skills, along with a string of ideas and

the vigour to work/serve are some of the most vital qualities in an individual. Do you possess

any or all of these skills?

India was the third largest producer of electricity as of 2014, is the third largest producer of

coal and its fourth largest importer. It has the fifth largest share of electricity produced from

wind in the world, and yet there is such severe shortage of electricity in the country. Can you

reason why?

LEAP, in association with Pragyan, presents, Greenville, an event where participants will

come up with a systematic analysis of the various issues involved in providing electricity and

how to tackle them.

The objective of the event is to come up with innovative ideas so as to reduce

the energy consumption in our metropolitan homes.

With the world energy consumption increasing exponentially, our primary aim must be 

towards reducing energy consumption. To aim towards this, we need to take our own baby 

steps at home that when multiplied by the millions of households in modern day cities can 

lead to large savings.

The main objective of the event is to come up with an innovative idea that will reduce the 

energy consumption in our homes. The problem statement can be tackled by targeting even 

the smallest of problems like sensors for lighting around the house or maintaining an 

optimum temperature in our rooms. There are various other suggestions listed below:

Suggestions for areas to look into:

● Changes in electrical appliances

          o Replacing appliances

          o Making minor changes to improve efficiency

          o Water heating system

          o Appliance Charging systems

● Weatherization

● Temperature control

● Changes in electrical appliances

          o Programmable thermostats for appliances

          o Thermal envelope

          o Replacing appliances

          o Phantom Load

          o Making minor changes to improve efficiency

          o Water heating system

          o Appliance Charging systems

● Maintenance of appliances and other systems

● Water

          o Changes in designs of bathroom accessories

          o Water purifiers

● Energy saving  tips and strategies.

Additional points will be awarded for data regarding an energy audit and models.

The following data can be included in your energy audit:


· Age of the appliance

· Per unit consumption

· Hours of usage of the appliance per day

· Basic study on design of the appliance


· Hours of usage per day

· Comparison between using gas cylinder and electric appliance for cooking purpose


· The billing history

· The age of the house

· The pattern of using electricity (specify the appliances) in the house
