Abstract

The purpose of this Interactive Qualifying Project was to conduct an energy audit on three buildings at Astrakhan State University in Russia and propose recommendations regarding ways in which electrical energy efficiency could be improved. After researching multiple energy-saving technologies, we recommend that Astrakhan State University install more efficient light bulbs and motion sensors. We also recommend Astrakhan State University implement piezoelectric flooring to become a leader in energy sustainability among universities in Russia.
