With the increasing demand for energy, effective management and conservation of the same has become the need of the hour. Recognizing the immense value that schools and school children can bring to the initiative and taking due consideration of this urgent need, Tata Power started "Tata Power Club Enerji", to propagate efficient usage of energy and to educate the society on climate change issues in 2007.
In 2009, TPCE become a national movement and covered more than 250 schools across Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Belgaum, Jamshedpur and Lonavla on the subject of energy conservation.
In 2016, Club Enerji broadened its horizons and introduced various critical facets that will widen the scope of the existing module and make it expansive, leading to deeper penetration in India and internationally.
It is looking to contribute towards disaster management preparedness, nation building by creating responsible citizens who will focus not only on conserving energy and natural resources (like fossil fuel-coal, oil, gas, water, managing waste, afforestation) but also imbibe civic and moral values. This year Club Enerji is undertaking this unique initiative of urging children to manage disasters & pledge to become better citizens.
At TPCE all around the year we engage in several club activities like competitions and events to stimulate interest, educate, sensitize and advocate judicious use of electricity among Club members and the community.
The biggest asset of Club Enerji is its Mini Club Enerjis. 1337 Mini Club Enerjis have been formed in the year 2015-16. These mini clubs are independent entities that drive the cause of energy conservation by their own innovative ideas. Celebrating international occasions like Earth Hour, conductive rallies, cyclothons, street plays, batti bandh and poster competition throughout the year. Thereby sensitizing their friends, parents and neighbors and propagating the message of energy and resource conservation.
The Tata Power Club Enerji website is a very interactive tool focusing on making the club members participate, discuss and share their ideas on energy conservation. Club members can find their way into this exciting pool of knowledge sharing.
