Formation of ECS

The idea of starting an organised mass movement for fostering energy conservation in the state was first conceived by Er. P. Sivasankaran in March, 1992. He, along with Dr. G. Pavithran and a few other colleagues in Vaidyuthi Bhavan, K.S.E.Board, Thiruvananthapuram worked towards the organization of this movement. Prof. V.K Damodaran, the then Director, Kerala State Science, Technology and Environment Department, Prof. R.V.G Menon and Dr. P.S Chandramohan have been among those concerned personalities who lent guidance and support to Er. Sivasankaran’s team. These efforts culminated in the formation of Energy Conservation Society (ECS) on 8-7-1992 at VMFT Hall, Thiruvananthapuram with Prof. V.K Damodaran as President, Er. P. Sivasankaran as General Secretary and Er. J. Murali Mohanlal as Treasurer. ECS was formally inaugurated by the then Minister for Electricity, Kerala Sri.P.V.Padmarajan on 5-12-1992 at Institution of Engineers (India) Hall, Thiruvananthapuram.
