Today, under the hash tag #لتبقى, Saudi Energy Efficiency Center launches his largest awareness campaign of energy saving
Today, Saudi Energy Efficiency Center launched its largest awareness campaign; it aims to explain the importance of rationalizing energy consumption and its optimal use at every moment to ensure its continued growth and survival for us and our children without any impact on the welfare of citizens.
The campaign is the main one among other awareness campaigns of Saudi Energy Efficiency Center that has been launched annually since 2014 as part of its efforts to cooperate with several
Saudi Energy Efficiency Center welcomes thousands of visitors in his wing awareness at the Janadriya Festival 1439 Hijri
In its participation in the activities of the National Festival of Heritage and Culture in Al-Janadriyah in its 32rd edition in 1439H, Saudi Energy Efficiency Center welcomed thousands of visitors from different age groups in its awareness and induction corners in the building of Energy System. The Awareness Corner included many sections of Energy Saving in sectors of Constructions, Transportation and Industrial transportation, with a review of awareness and procedural messages along with a
The Saudi Energy Efficiency Center held a workshop titled "Energy Efficiency and Management: Opportunities and Benefits" at Riyadh Chamber of Commerce, in which the training initiatives of the Center were organized in cooperation with the competent international organizations in the field of energy efficiency. The workshop dealt with a number of topics, mainly introducing the center and its initiatives and training programs in the field of rationalization and raising the
Industrial sector consumption of energy is 15% of the total local consumption, and petrochemicals, steel, and cement represents 85% of total energy consumption in industry. According to the data provided by the Electricity & Cogeneration Regulatory Authority, electricity consumption in the industrial sector in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was expected to reach /50009/ gigawatt/hour in 2011, which means that the industrial sector consumes approx. 22% of electricity production.
Generally, the buildings (residential, governmental, and commercial) in Saudi Arabia are characterized with severe excess of electrical usage, whether in air conditioning, lighting, equipment, and other devices, as buildings consume 80% of the electricity produces in Saudi Arabia, where as air conditioning represents 50% of this consumption.
According to the annual report of 2011 of Electricity & Cogeneration Regulatory Authority, consumption in Buildings Sector for participants’
Many challenges face energy efficiency efforts in land transportation sector in Saudi Arabia, as this sector is suffering from excessive fuel consumption. This necessitates working promptly to stop this consumption excessiveness, and spread culture of energy consumption rationalization in general, and fuel consumption rationalization in particular. These challenges include:
Fuel low price:
Fuel price in Saudi Arabia is one of the lowest in the world (following Venezuela and Iran
The energy efficiency card of tires is two sided:
- Left Side: Energy efficiency and the amount of fuel you can save by using this tire.
- Right Side: The coherence on the wet surfaces, which reflects the resistance of the tire against sliding on wet surfaces. Both sections have 6 levels ranging from excellent to very poor. On the left card, If the indicator (black arrow) indicates an "excellent"
The fuel economy card aims to educate the consumer about energy efficiency in light vehicles with a total weight of less than 3500 kg.
Fuel economy card is divided into 6 levels of energy efficiency:
• Highest efficiency is an "excellent" level labeled in dark green
• Followed by a "very good" level labeled in green
• followed by a "good" level labeled in light green
• followed by "Average" labeled in yellow
• followed by "poor" labeled in orange.
These Energy Efficiency Cards are designed to educate the customers and give them a reliable way to compare the electrical appliances according to their electricity consuming efficiency before purchasing to help customers to choose the device that performs better while consuming less energy. The efficiency of electricity consumption is represented by the number of stars so that the greater the number of stars shown on the card the better efficiency of the device in
