According to reports, the Information Communication Technologies (ICT) applications have significant role in management of energy by reducing emissions and increasing energy efficiency, said IIIT-A director MD Tiwari while speaking at the ninth foundation day of Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Information Technology, Amethi (RGIITA) on Monday.
Inaugurating the two-day seminar on “IT applications in energy management”, Tiwari said technologies such as simulation, modeling, analysis, monitoring and visualisation tools offered by ICTs could allow to optimise the use of existing energy resources by taking into account many factors such as energy demand.
Securing the electric infrastructure and its critical facilities from terrorist attacks is one of the most significant security challenges globally, he said, adding that it is essential to secure our system from cyber spacing and attacks to save our production system. He appealed to the students, faculty and participants to use their potential energy into kinetic energy in order to full usage of ICT in the country.
Former secretary in UP agriculture department, SN Jha said through IT application, the electricity line loss could be saved largely in our country. He said China and Japan had already successfully applied IT in power management so our country should also come forward in this direction.
Seminar coordinator Prof GN Pandey said about 16% of global energy consumption is met from renewable resources, with 10% of all energy from traditional biomass, mainly used for heating, and 3.4% from hydroelectricity.
New renewables (small hydro, modern biomass, wind, solar, geothermal, and biofuels) accounted for another 3% and are growing very rapidly. The share of renewables in electricity generation is around 19%, with 16% of electricity coming from hydroelectricity and 3% from new renewables.
JP Kesari, Renewal Energy Centre, Delhi Technological University, Suresh Bajpai, PC Pant, director, ministry of renewable energy, Government of India and others touched the different aspects of energy management. Prominent among the present included Seema Shah, Asheesh Kumar, Pawan, Shrishu Verma and Pankaj Mishra. Sanjay Singh proposed vote of thanks.
