Energy & Climate Change

As a university in green forest,

UUM aspires and draws on every single possibility to save energy and has even made it a culture among UUM community to reduce energy consumption. UUM has taken several measures over the time in using energy efficient appliances. To list them, retrofitting from fluorescent tubes (T8) to (T5) and LED tubes, replacement of (SON) street light to LED fittings, retrofitting from (SON) compound light to Induction lamp fittings, replacement of Metal Halide High Bay fittings to Induction lamp fittings, and replacement of flood light system from metal halide fittings to LED/Induction lamp fittings. UUM has also made considerable lighting management system at lecture theatre, at building passageway/corridor, and at public toilet. In addition, Building Automation System for air-conditioning operation system in administration, academic buildings and lecture theatre has helped reduce remarkable energy consumption. Furthermore, utilization of natural ventilation and application of High volume low speed fan (HVLS) and utilization of natural lighting have made this effort even more practical.

Besides, application of Solar panels to mini golf lighting system is also an effort in using renewable energy resources.

Moreover, UUM has also conducted energy conservation programme. For instance, rescheduling of air-conditioning system operation by reducing total operation by half an hour. Adding to that are the campaigns conducted by UUM; Earth Hour Programme and switch off the lights, fan and split unit air-conditioner when not necessary.

The Go Green effort did not just stop there but continued to spread in buildings as well where UUM accentuated green building elements. 30% of building space utilises natural ventilation, 20% of building space utilises full day lighting and less than 35% for circulation in building efficiency.

Finally yet importantly, UUM has introduced greenhouse gas emission reduction policy. In order to put this policy in action UUM has forbidden open burning, made air-conditioning mechanical, and replaced halon and CO2 gas in firefighting system with environmental friendly gases such as clean agent and FM200.
