UMP’s Electricity Saving Initiatives programme had started since 2012; to-date, we manage to save an average of 106,132.10kWh every month. The initiatives that have implemented include changing conventional light bulbs to energy saving light bulbs such as LEDs, and management of electricity consumption in each department and divisions. The university has also empowered an integrated energy and environmental policy inside the campus.
