Dr. Ishrat-Ul-Ebad Khan Green Campus Initiative at NED University

Energy Crises is the leading problem faced by modern world today including Pakistan. Universities must play a major role mitigating energy crises. In this regards, NED University of Engineering & Technology has planned to embark on "Energy Conservation Initiative" for becoming the first Green Campus in Pakistan. Results of the exercise jointly conducted by NED University and KESC, to identify potential areas for energy conservation, are highly promising. It is envisaged that the transformation of NED University into Green Campus will not only enable it to save Rs. 24 Million annually, but in addition, it will also help in reducing 365 Metric tons of Carbon Emission, thus playing an important role in the fight against global warming. The proposal of Rs. 200 Million has been accepted by the Sindh Government in the kind patronage of honorable Governor of Sindh Dr. Ishrat-Ul- Ebad Khan.




Pathway to Smart Engineering - Smart Grid Seminar at NED University
