Abstract

Towards year 2020, energy demand will become more massive in Malaysia. According to MS1525 standard, a recommended building energy index in Malaysia is almost 135kWh/m²/yr. However, almost all of the buildings do not meet the standard. This study is mainly about investigating the energy efficiency at Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM) specifically in Faculty of Technology Engineering (FTK) and Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FKM). The objective of the study is to identify the excessive uses of lamp and light level. The scope is in the FTK and FKM building by using lumen method. Then, the methods that will be use start with doing some survey and questionnaire to the user, collect data, calculate data and lastly analysis for improvement energy consumption. The result indicates the calculation of lighting level for lecture room 9 at Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FKM) is excessive which around 73 foot-candle. The best lighting level for this class or lecture room could only be around 20-50 foot-candle only. It shown better energy efficiency by look at the light level of lamp can be reducing based on calculation. Lastly, at the ends of the day, the study hopefully will show a reduction in the electricity consumption especially could result in savings in utilization and associated expenditure for UTeM.
