What is Energy Management

Energy management is a process by which any form of energy is used effectively and sustainably. It is a branch of science that involves planning to reduce the cost involved in the production of energy but still producing enough energy that is required to satiate consumer’s demand. Energy management is a step towards minimising global warming, carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions. It not just helps to reduce the cost of production but also helps the company produce energy which is of better quality.

Energy management is a vast subject, and understanding it is rather complex. Every sector is in dire need of young, passionate, energetic professionals who can think out of the box, who can provide something new to the market, and so is the case with the energy sector.

Eligibility Criteria (UG & PG) of Energy Management

  • Candidates seeking entrance exam for MBA in energy management must have done B.Tech /B.Sc. from a recognised university.

  • Candidates must have completed their graduation with a minimum aggregate of 50%.

Entrance Exams for Energy Management

  • Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) – This is a national level entrance exam conducted for all the management courses by NTA. CMAT is valid for JNU, and all the AICTE approved colleges and universities. The entrance exams are mostly held in January.

  • Xavier’s Aptitude Test (XAT) – This is a national level exam conducted in online mode, mostly in January. About 150 colleges seek the marks obtained in XAT to provide admission to the colleges.

Scope of Energy Management in India and Abroad

According to a study released by the US Energy Information Administration in the year 2011, “In the year 2008, China and India, accounted for 21% of the total world energy consumption. By 2035, both countries will account for 31% of world energy use.”

With the increased energy consumption, it is very important to maximise energy management to save the degrading planet and country’s economy. Energy management not just reduces pollution or climate changes but widely affects the economy of any country by saving millions.
