The thermal power station uses certain portion of their generated power to cater its auxiliary power requirements. The auxiliary power consumed in India is around 8-9%. Thus, the aim of this paper is to determine the potential areas for minimizing auxiliary power consumption in any thermal plant by energy management policy to improve energy efficiency of auxiliaries. This paper gives the basic understanding of energy efficiency, energy management approach and energy saving areas so as to achieve higher plant efficiency resulting fuel saving.
