Abstract

In this study, ene•·gy audit was conducted at Covenant Unive•·sity to assess the pattem of elect.-icity consumption in m·de•· to imp.-ove ene•·gy consumption efficiency in the Unive.-sity. Space cooling (29%) and lighting (29%) have the highest pe1-centage elect.-icity consumption in the unive•·sity. In the academic buildings, maximum powe•· is consumed in space cooling (49%). In the staff quaJ-te•·s, lighting application consumed maximum powe•· (39%), followed by space cooling application (18%). The annual ene•·gy and cost saving potentials fm· •·eplacing t.-aditional flum·escent tube lights (FTLs) and incandescent bulbs with compact fluo•·escent lamps (CFLs) in the students' hostels and in the staff quaJ-te•·s a1·e about 394 MWh, N4.8 Million ($30,000) and 641 MWh, N7.9 Million ($49, 375) •·espectively. Fm· space cooling systems, the annual ene•·gy and cost saving potentials fm· •·eplacing conventional •·esistance elect.-ic •·egulato•· fans with elect.-onic •·egulatm· fans is about 367 MWh and N 9.8 Million ($61,250), •·espectively.
