in electrical consumption. The saving electrical consumption cover several building :
The government buildings
The national company buildings
Official residences
Lighting for public roads, decorative lights, and public boards.
The final targets from the saving electrical consumption are to decrease the electrical
consumption till 20 % and to achieve the criteria minimum efficient for electrical

2. Please give the explanation about scope of energy management in building?
Answer :
Scope of energy management in building covers some of instrument and habitual from the
user. The ministrial regulation No. 13/2012 describe that scope of the management in
building consist of :
Heating, Ventilating, Air Circulation (HVAC),
Lighting system,
Other instrument or supporting which use electrical source.
The ways to save energy and to improve performance of energy could be follow some of
methods, such as :
CONTROLLING ENERGY USE
1. Reduce air leakage and water leakage, Seal unused vents and ducts to the outside
2. Turn off lighting : remove unnecessary lighting, add switched circuits, use motion
sensors and light-sensitive controls
3. Use temperature setup and setback, Cool with outside air
4. Take transformers offline during idle periods, Disconnect or turn off all
nonessential loads
5. Educate tenants and occupants

1. Training operating personnel
2. Tuning combustion equipment
3. Adjusting gas burners to optimal efficiency
4. Following an established maintenance program
