Logical use of resources on campus

 

Logical use of resources on campus

 

Electricity consumption

  • The University uses a control system for electricity use, such as air-conditioning, which transfers information to the center which controls it.

 

Air-Conditioning

  • The air-conditioning system is set to 22°C all year round with a range of 2 degrees above and below.

  • The air-conditioning system automatically shuts down after 2 hours, apart from those rooms with special needs such as laboratories.

  • The buildings are cooled by water which is cooled to a temperature of between 6-17°C by chillers on a Freon basis in one central point in the university.

  • The cold water is transferred to all the buildings on campus by way on a pump during the night (in order to reduce electricity consumption at peak hours).

  • If the difference in temperatures between the water entering the building and that leaving it is less than 9 degrees, the water is returned to the building to continue to cool it.

  • The heating of buildings in winter months is by the burning of fuel oil which is more economical than the use of air conditioning in large facilities and less contaminating than burning coal in the power station to generate electricity for air conditioners.

 

For air conditioning malfunctions, please call 08-6461666/8

 

Lighting

  • All of the light bulbs in the university are PL or fluorescent.

  • In the new buildings there are sensors which automatically switch off the light after a certain period of time or when no presence can be detected.

  • Sensors are planned for around and additional 20 classrooms in older buildings.

  • Janitorial staff are responsible for turning off lights in classrooms and offices after operational hours.

 

Water Consumption

  • All taps are fitted with economizers

  • In male toilets, there are urinals which do not use water.

Every cistern has a handle to flush only half of the water in the tank.
