Abstract: Energy is the most fundamental and essential requirement for the survival and growth of all living things on earth. Energy has been recognized as one of the key inputs for the economic growth and social development of a country. However, for both social and economic purposes the energy usage needs to be optimized. In industries, energy consumption is measured as specific energy consumption (SEC) (energy/product). In order to reduce the SEC, it is necessary to have awareness about the modern technologies used in industries. In recent times India has become one of the biggest producers of textiles, cement, chemicals, etc. and other industrial outputs. In this paper, a comparison of specific energy consumption in various energy intensive industries of India with what is prevalent internationally. Moreover, various the energy saving measures for industries falling under PAT scheme IV are described, which can reduce the overall specific energy consumption for that industry. At last, the reasons why SEC for Indian industries are higher than rest of the world are provided. After analyzing all the data, it is concluded that except cement sector, in all the energy intensive sectors under PAT scheme IV, Indian industries still have to work on reduction of its? SEC by applying various energy efficiency measures and adopting latest technologies.
