LED “Light Emitted Diode” life is more than 50,000 working hours , the maintenance will be lessand the light fitting equipment will not be effected compared with other types.2. All components in the LED lights are recyclable.3. No hazardous components in the LED lights4. Generate very low heat during operation which helps in cooling system.5. More bright compared to other types of lights.6. Consumes less energy by 50%, hence less by 50% in electricity bills7. Hence, Power station produces less by 50% for the same amount of lighting compared withconventional lighting.8. LED Consumes fix Watt compared to the normal fluorescent which the watt increases byincrease number of operating hours from the moment of switching on the light 16
  17. 17. Proposals1. Develop an action plan and implementation mechanism.2. Energy Audit3. Thermal insulation for Roof & Walls4. Double Glazing for windows where it reduces the heat transfer by 50%.5. Purchase efficient Air Condition which comply with international standards.6. Use of electric/electronic devices with the most efficient use of electricity7. Use solar for light poles and parking entrances bars8. Use Flash Tank in W/C and have option to use the full amount or less amount of water as needed.9. Use water sensors10. Adopt Grey water technique to increase the landscaping11. Adopt Hydroponic gardening on the roof to reduce heat transfer. Communications1. Use SMS for events announcements between staff.2. If applicable get LOGO for your committee3. Staff awareness.4. Put posters in the corridors and offices5. Honoring the best Idea & best department. 17
