“Energy” used to be a term that everybody took for granted. Now, to a layman, energy has been added to the list of the basic necessities of life. Increasing energy costs have forced people to recognize and appreciate the value of energy more than ever before. Energy conservation is being stressed not only in industrial operations but also in almost all aspects of an individual’s daily activities.
