Mongrace Welcomes Watt Guru Initiative
The increasing demand for power has led to considerable fossil fuel burning thus not only depleting the fossil fuel reserves, but also greatly and adversely impacting the environment. We have read that efficient use of energy and its conservation assumes even greater importance in view of the fact that one unit of energy saved at the consumption level reduces the need for fresh capacity creation by 2.5 times to 3 times. Further, such saving through efficient use of energy can be achieved at less than one-fifth the cost of fresh capacity creation. Energy efficiency would, therefore, significantly supplement our efforts to meet power requirement, apart from reducing fossil fuel consumption. Thus, energy management has shifted parameters from the 'can do' alternative to the 'must do'. Therefore, in order to incentivize energy conservation and make the consumer aware of the great benefits of energy saving (both in the context of monetary and lifestyle changes) through an interactive and multimedia mode, an e-portal dedicated to propagating the virtues and benefits of energy conservation has been created by the Bengal Chamber and supported by Enfragy India.

 
An enabling forum for promoting an overarching consciousness towards the need for energy conservation, the portal stands on the superstructure created by the three pillars of engagement, information and assistance, which are the three broad areas of delivery. From information on energy efficient products to videos, articles and blogs by experts, games and an online energy calculator, the focus is on utilizing the portal as a forum for engaging with the consumer and simultaneously as a knowledge platform for energy conservation aimed towards catering to the general citizen – from the teenager to the student, the young professional and even not counting out the senior citizen.
