One of the most common equipments used in all areas of human activity, are lighting systems. In India, lighting systems consume about 17 % of the total power consumed.[1] On account of poor operational practices and maintenance procedures, most of the lighting equipments operate at low efficiencies. Energy conservation in lighting system not only involves making use of efficient lighting equipments, but also making use of natural daylight, wherever possible, to the maximum possible extent. One such area where the lighting system plays an important part in the day-to-day operations is an educational institution campus. This paper focuses on the energy conservation measures possible in lighting systems in the case of the educational institution campus of MIT Manipal.
