- In India, the rate of energy consumption is more than energy generation and resulted in reduction of fossil fuel resources. In this paper, a case study of energy audit in a thermal power plant is carried out to bring energy conservation options wherever possible. The main aim of this paper is to reduce the energy consumption by energy audits and management for enhancing power generation. This can be done by continuous process where target must be set, monitored and re-assessed on a regular basis. This paper presents the results from energy audit of 100 MW captive thermal power plant of TATA Chemicals Limited, situates at Mithapur, Gujarat. A detailed study of performance assessment of the boiler considering fuel and cost savings is presented. The efficiency of boiler and related losses are also calculated.
