Electrical Usage Reduction

Targets: 40% reduction on energy usage (capita/year) by 2024 compared to 2003 baseline.

Current Status: In 2019, 14.09% reduction on energy usage (capita/year) compared to 2003 baseline.

This line graph presents Electricity Consumption at KMUTT between 2015 and 2019. The general view shows that electricity consumption has continued decreasing rapidly from 27,866,788 kWh in 2015 to 24,432,929 kWh in 2019. This dramatic decrease represent that university is a high concern for saving electricity and energy conservation under the concepts of PEOPLEWARE, HARDWARE and SOFTWARE.

For Peopleware, it refers to the human role in an electricity saving and conservation. KMUTT announce Energy policy 2018 that refer from THAILAND’S ENERGY 4.0 to all student and staff. This policy aim to persuade people at campus for a better electricity consumption behavior. Also, we create various successful events which defined by the number of people who attend such as 60+ Earth hour event , Energy Day at KMUTT and World Environment Day. Moving to Hardware, the implementation of replace inefficient equipment with energy efficient devices such as smart light and water sensor, LED lighting and inverter chiller continually working to promote energy efficient within campus. Furthermore, KMUTT has set the target of increasing alternative energy like Solar energy (rooftop and floating) instead the used of fossil fuel during peak load demand. Finally, is Software, a set of instructions, data or programs used to operate Building Automation System for studying trend of energy consumption and power demand profile.

This bar chart presents Electricity Consumption per month between 2017 and 2018.The general view shows that the average monthly electricity consumption for KMUTT’s Bangmod Campus was 1,473,820 kilowatt-hours. May (Summer season) had the highest electricity consumption at 1,653,061 kWh, and December (Winter season) had the lowest electricity consumption at 1,223,596 kWh. As May is researching month. Most of senior students came to campus for conducting their research before graduate school which present the main cause increased electricity usage.

The continuously decreasing of electricity usage within campus is guaranteed by Thailand Energy Awards as following:
