SDG 7.2.2: Plans to upgrade existing buildings to higher energy efficiency

Actually, the university is putting a plan to change non-compliant equipment in existing buildings and to improve the energy efficiency. These improvements include, but are not limited to:

  • Finalizing a study to implement solar photovoltaic panels on an area up to 1000 square meters in Wardanieh campus to provide clean and affordable energy.
  • Equipping common areas which are not regularly occupied with occupancy / Motion sensors.
  • Replacing current energy storage lead-acid batteries to lithium-ion batteries.
  • Install smart meters at the level of each floor inside the buildings.

We have to mention here that some projects need foreign development aid on renewable energy. The university plans to benefit from official development assistance on electricity exchange with the EDL grid, by benefiting from related government policies.
