Energy Consumption Data in 2019


Energy Consumption Data (2010 - 2019)


In July 2018, the University’s energy consumption dropped to its lowest.


Mapúa University launched its strategic objectives, known as I GO FOR VALUE, in 2010, where “R” stands for “carbon footprint reduction”. This initiative led to the replacement of conventional lighting fixtures with energy saving lighting fixtures, installation of A/C inverters, and replacement of CRT computer monitors with flat LCD monitors. Hence in 2012, Mapúa incurred energy consumption savings amounting to PhP639,990.24 due to better energy efficiency, and won an “ECOSWITCH” award. The ECOSWITCH awarding ceremony was a part of the Green Philippines Islands of Sustainability (GPIoS) Project, an initiative funded by the European Union’s SWITCH Asia program.
