Energy efficiency has been an immense importance in worldwide particularly in large educational institutes which are often left unnoticed as a contributor to energy consumers in Pakistan. The institute budget for energy cost has assumed to be the major costs and minimizing the energy bill in a large institute has become a big challenge. The targeted actions can be used to minimize the electricity consumption. The savings on energy provides a chance to reinvest it for the institute. In this work, energy assessment of Government College of Technology (GCT) campus Bhakkar is done to identify potential energy savings and to enhance the awareness, responsiveness for energy conservation amongst the community of the campus. The data about the installed load is collected by visiting each department. This work explained in details of the power consumption of different electrical devices installed in the institute and energy usage by those devices for a month is analysed. The work showed that a significant energy savings up to 50 % is achieved if old electrical devices are replaced with latest Energy conserving devices. Many facts corresponding the ECM devices are also encoded in this work and payback time is computed for the devices. Few basic ECMs are recommended to be followed by the institute which is technically and economically more reasonable. The benefits of implementing the energy efficiency measures in buildings are substantial both in terms of energy savings and cost savings.
