What is Energy Conservation?
Sometimes the two concepts are distinguished by how the savings are achieved. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) says that “energy efficiency is technology-based” (compact fluorescent light bulbs, for example), while conservation “is rooted in behavior” (such as turning off unneeded lights). Moreover, the energy savings from efficiency are easier to predict, measure and especially to sustain, making efficiency easier to treat as an energy resource.1 This distinction, however, is not entirely clear cut; there are efficiency measures that rely on behavior, such as combining car trips to save gasoline.

IMPACTS: INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGIES PROGRAM (ITP), SUMMARY OF PROGRAM RESULTS FOR CY2009http://energy.gov/eere/downloads/impacts-industrial-technologies-program-summary-program-results-cy2009
The document consists of seven appendices.
Appendix 1 describes the 95 ITP-supported technologies currently available commercially and their applications and benefits.
Appendix 2 describes the 132 ITP-supported emerging technologies likely to be commercialized within two or three years.
Appendix 3 describes 128 ITP-supported technologies used in past commercial applications, the
current benefits of which are no longer counted in this report.
Appendices 4 and 5 summarize the benefits of two ITP technical assistance activities: the Industrial Assessment Centers and the Save Energy Now initiative.
Appendix 6 summarizes the benefits of CHP systems attributed to DOE activities.
Appendix 7 describes the methodology used to assess and track ITP-supported technologies.
About DOE’s Industrial Technologies Program
The Industrial Technologies Program, through partnerships with industry, government, and non-governmental organizations, develops and delivers advanced energy effi ciency, renewable energy, and pollution prevention technologies for industrial applications. The Industrial Technologies Program is part of the U.S. Department of Energyʼs Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
The Industrial Technologies Program encourages industry-wide efforts to boost resource productivity through a strategy called Industries of the Future (IOF). IOF focuses on the following eight energy and resource intensive industries:
• Aluminum • Forest Products • Metal Casting • Petroleum
• Chemicals • Glass • Mining • Steel
The Industrial Technologies Program and its Best Practices activities offer a wide variety of resources to industrial partners that cover motor, steam, compressed air, and process heating systems. For example, Best Practices software can help you decide whether to replace or rewind motors (MotorMaster+), assess the efficiency of pumping systems (PSAT), compressed air systems (AirMaster+), steam systems (Steam Scoping Tool), or determine optimal insulation thickness for pipes and pressure vessels (3E Plus).
Training is available to help you or your staff learn how to use these software programs and learn more about industrial systems. Workshops are held around the country on topics such as “Capturing the Value of Steam Efficiency,” “Fundamentals and Advanced Management of Compressed Air Systems,” and “Motor System Management.”
Available technical publications range from case studies and tip sheets to source books and market assessments. The Energy Matters newsletter, for example, provides timely articles and information on comprehensive energy systems for industry. You can access these resources and more by visiting the BestPractices Web site at www.eere.energy.gov/ industry/bestpractices or by contacting the EERE Information Center at 877-337-3463 or via email at www.eere.energy.gov/informationcenter/.

Slogans for Energy Conservation
You may not be able to produce energy, But You can definitely save energy.
Spending energy is spending money. Do it wisely.
Energy consumption is a burden on your purse. it is a burden on India's economy. It is a burden on Environment.
Conservation is only careful consumption.
What is conservation? Consumption with care.
