24 Degree Celsius to Solve India’s Energy Crisis

24 Degree Celsius to Solve India’s Energy Crisis

Green Alert
The Minister of State (I/C) for Power and New & Renewable Energy Shri R.K Singh has recently launched a campaign to promote energy efficiency in the area of air-conditioning. According to him, "Every one degree increase in the air-conditioner temperature setting results in saving of 6% of electricity consumed. Normal human body temperature is approximately 36-37 degree Celsius, but large number of commercial establishments, hotels and offices maintain temperature around 18-21 degree Celsius. This is not only uncomfortable but is actually unhealthy. Setting the temperature in the range of 18-21 degree Celsius compels people to wear warm clothing or use blankets; therefore, this is actually wastage of energy. Some countries like Japan have put in place regulation to keep the temperat

Editor's Note: Guest post, cross-posted from IBNLive. Karma Paljor works with Network 18 and is the face of news on CNN-IBN. When not on TV, he can be found at an airport near you, remotely flying his planes over the Delhi sky! Election gone, subsidy gone. Like everything you will now have to pay more for power. In future, if things go this way, electricity will perhaps constitute about 40% or even more of your home operating costs. So, if you are one of those into heavy forward planning you will perhaps invest in non conventional modes of energy. I found this rather interesting piece of equipment that immediately helped me lower my electricity bill by over 70%. The best part is that I invested just under Rs 200; could have been cheaper had I bought it off the street. It's also br
Why is Delhi So Hot This Summer?

Why is Delhi So Hot This Summer?

Green Alert
A tree hangs not knowing where to go (and neither able to): an art piece from the 48c Public.Art.Ecology Festival  The summer this year has been unusually--yet predictably--very hot. Hotter than previous Delhi summers in ways more than one: with not just a peak daily hot session but the high heat intensity starting earlier in the day and not giving any real relief until long after dusk. The city has become an ideal case study for the proponents of climate change, and with the monsoon both arriving late and only giving a guest apperance, the impact of global warming has never been so evident to so many. But is there more to the Delhi summer (heat) of 2009? The city is clearly under construction at present: both under and over ground. Delhi Metro, BRT corridor, Games Village, Malls a
