In this study, energy audit was conducted at Covenant University to assess the pattern of electricity consumption in made•· to improve energy consumption efficiency in the University. Space cooling (29%) and lighting (29%) have the highest pe1-centage electricity consumption in the university. In the academic buildings, maximum power· is consumed in space cooling (49%). In the staff quaJ-te•·s, lighting application consumed maximum power (39%), followed by space cooling application (18%). The annual energy and cost saving potentials fm· replacing traditional flum·escent tube lights (FTLs) and incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) in the students' hostels and in the staff quaJ-te•·sa1e about 394 MWh, N4.8 Million ($30,000) and 641 MWh, N7.9 Million ($49, 375) respectively. Fm· space cooling systems, the annual energy and cost saving potentials for replacing conventional resistance electric regulator fans with electronic regulatm· fans is about 367 MWh and N 9.8 Million ($61,250), respectively
