“In this present modern age, the things are changing very fast and there is dire need to change the energy conservation modes to get best and effective results. With the advancement in the smart man-made materials, the global scenario of energy conservation is being changed”. This was stated by Dr. Ansar Pervaz, Former Chairman Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) while addressing a one-day seminar on “Materials for Energy Conservation” organized by Pakistan Nuclear Society (PNS) and National Centre for Physics (NCP). The event was attended by Dr. Ishfaq Ahmad (N.I, H.I., S. I.) Chairman Board of Governors, NCP along with many scientists and researchers from different organizations of twin cities.
President of PNS Dr. Syed Javaid Khurshid, who is also associated as distinguished visiting fellow of Centre of International Strategic Studies (CISS) while talking about the objectives and goals of Pakistan Nuclear Society(PNS) said that PNS is striving its best to disseminate scientific knowledge among the policy makers by holding different activities on regular basis. He added that society can be useful to promote nuclear energy as part of nuclear mix and reducing greenhouse gas emission, bridge research and academia in this field, increase the visibility of nuclear research in the country, increase the political support for providing nuclear projects i.e in agriculture, health and energy and to aware the society about the peaceful importance of this field. He lauded the all-out support of Dr. Ishfaq Ahmad (N.I, H.I., S. I.) and Mr. Muhammad Naeem, Chairman Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) in arranging the activities of PNS. He was also thankful to Dr. Hafeez Hoorani, Director General NCP for jointly organizing this scientific activity. In last Dr. Javaid delivered a lecture on ” Solar Panel generate clean energy but more waste than Nuclear”.
The purpose of holding this activity is to sensitize the researchers and students about the efforts made to reduce the consumption of energy by using less of an energy service. The idea about the modern man-made material was also discussed during the seminar and presentations were given by different scientists about the materials being used for energy conservation at all level either domestically or industrially. Energy conservation is a part of the concept of eco-sufficiency. It also lowers energy costs by preventing future resource depletion.
