Energy audit is an important tool in transforming the fortunes of any organization. This is highly relevant to the sugar industry as it deals with a renewable energy source and looked upon as rural power house. The scope for conservation is immense and if properly harnessed can take the organization to the path of prosperity. In this paper, a gland steam system has been studied and a proposed system is provided for the enhancement of the gland steam system. Also, in actual cogeneration process,
