The projects of the buildings (static, electrical, mechanical), electricity and natural gas consumption costs for the last three years were sent to the ministry from the Department of Construction and Technical Affairs. After the necessary studies, it was decided to implement energy efficiency at Pamukkale University.
The project initiated at Pamukkale University will be funded by the World Bank and will be carried out under the financial guarantee of the Ministry of Treasury and Finance in cooperation with the Ministry of Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change and Pamukkale University Department of Construction Works and Technical Department.
In Pamukkale University, buildings that meet the eligibility and selection criteria within the scope of the project will undergo major renovations based on energy audits. In this context, 19 buildings (236,296 m²) in Kınıklı Central Campus, out of a total of 65 buildings with a total area of 366,745 m² in PAU, were evaluated within the scope of the KABEV project.
Annual energy savings of 15,723,100 kWh will be achieved through efficiency-enhancing projects
With the efficiency-enhancing projects carried out at the site, 15,723,100 kWh of energy will be saved annually (equivalent to the annual energy consumption of approximately 1,123 houses); 6,114 tons/year of CO2 emissions will be prevented, 14,733 trees will be saved every year, and an average of 2,524,730 kWh of the building's annual energy need will be met by Monocrystalline solar panels.
During the field trip to Pamukkale University, the physical condition, location and potential of the buildings were examined. When the measures identified were evaluated, the Faculty of Education and Engineering A Block Building were deemed suitable as nZEP "Nearly Zero Energy Building".
In the tender held by the Ministry of Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change, CCN Infrastructure Investments and Construction Joint Stock Company was awarded the contract on 20.09.2023 and the activities will be completed in 8 months. Under the control of the Ministry of Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change, the works to be supervised by the consultant company TÜMAŞ Turkish Engineering Consultancy and Contracting Joint Stock Company will also be supported by Pamukkale University Department of Construction and Technical Affairs.
KABEV, which aims to reduce energy consumption and the current account deficit caused by the public sector by leading the sector and to set an example for the sector for energy efficiency studies on the other hand, ensures that energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions are significantly reduced, combating climate change, energy saving potentials in buildings, energy efficiency and climate change, and raising a high level of social awareness on issues such as energy efficiency and climate change.
