GSP [email protected]: Energy Managers

WHAT IS GSP [email protected]: ENERGY MANAGERS

Did you know that globally, for every unit of power consumed (measured in kiloWatt-hour or kWh), 800 gram to 1 kg of carbon dioxide CO2 gets released into the atmosphere? For example, if the monthly consumption of your household is 450 units of electricity, this can add up to 450 kg of CO2 emissions – that is a lot of carbon emissions which you are throwing out into the environment.Now imagine that your house is operating completely on solar energy: you would save over 5,000 kg of carbon emissions in a year!

GSP [email protected]: Energy Managers is a quick online survey to rate your energy practices and adopt greener ones, let us learn to manage our household resources efficiently by answering questions that make us think about our consumption patterns and practices with respect to energy and improve our household practices

Participation in the survey is free. Ideally, it can be taken by students of Grades 5 to 10, but other students are also welcome to participate. It takes 5 to 7 days to observe the household practices and answer the questions. You can take help of your teachers or family members in completing the survey.

All the participants who successfully submit the survey will be provided with personalised scorecards – a detailed report that tells how environmentally-sustainable your waste management practices are and how those can be improved!
