The state has been placed second at the national level for energy conservation activities, the Energy Management Centre (EMC), Kerala, said in a statement. The award, instituted by the Union Power Ministry, is being given for the energy conservation activities undertaken by the EMC, which is the state-designated agency for the same. This is the fourth time the EMC is winning the award, EMC director K M Dhareshan Unnithan said.

Established in 1996, the EMC has formulated energy conservation programmes suitable for various sectors.
