Specific Energy Consumption, Energy Utilization Index, Library Building


This research article presents the study of energy consumption, specific energy consumption (SEC) and energy utilization index (EUI) in electronics library at Pibulsongkram Rajabhat University. The library building was constructed by concrete, 4 floors, which do not have air conditioner in car parking at ground floor. The central unit air conditioner is for other floors in building. Chiller is the main equipment for air condition system that it is mainly consuming energy equipment. Then, others electric equipment and lighting system are lower, respectively. The result of this study found that peak demand for the building was 321.5 kW which is proportional by air conditioning system, others electric equipment and lighting system at 81.49%, 10.89% and 7.62%, respectively. Specific energy consumption (SEC) in building was 16.67 MJ/m2, specific energy consumption in air conditioning area was 21.15 MJ/m2 and specific energy consumption by library user was 6.97 MJ/person. The energy utilization index in building was 0.44. Our finding important implications for study of energy utilization and energy efficiency in library buildings.
