The present article is dedicated for evaluating the industrial sector in terms of energetic and exergetic aspects. In this regard, energy and exergy utilization efficiencies during the period 2005-2011 are assessed based on real data obtained from Energy statistics of India. Sectoral energy and exergy analyses are conducted to study the variations of energy and exergy efficiencies, overall energy and exergy efficiencies for the entire sub-sector are found to be in the range of 67.23% to 77.83%. When compared with other neighbouring countries, such as Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Turkey, the Indian industrial sector is the more efficient. Such difference is inevitable due to the proper use of fossil-fuel resources. It is concluded that the present technique and associated analysis is beneficial for analyzing sectoral energy and exergy utilization in India and provides the information on how efficiently energy is used. It is also helpful to establish standards to facilitate application in industry and in other processes for a successful energy planning towards sustainable development.
