Abstract: This paper presents a suitable lamp and an automated display system to reduce energy consumption in student hostels at College of Science and Technology. The study was carried out as a part of student project, and discusses on the ways to reduce energy consumption. From the data collected, hostel area consumes more power than other places in the campus, reasons could be usage of lamps with higher power rating and students carelessness. Based on these reasons, two solutions were proposed viz. selection of suitable lamp to overcome first reason, and development of an automated system to further reduce energy consumption due to students carelessness. The paper proposes in brief a suitable lamp based on theoretical calculations, and more on the automated system. The system was designed and tested for a student room. The system worked satisfactory for the purpose, but there are improvements or studies needed to carry out to reduce overall cost, and also to make it work for all the rooms in a hostel.
