SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production

Prince Sultan University taken efforts on bringing the environment pollution free and contribute towards climate change. As an important stakeholder, PSU contributes towards the achievement of sustainable cities and communities through various events, practices, and research. It regularly organizes events and exhibitions for students and employees to promote the responsible consumption and production.

The strong commitment can be witnessed from the type of support provided in events related to, E-waste and the sustainable practices followed for sustainable PSU campus to promote responsible consumption and production, research contribution, etc. Moreover, the integration of consumption and production as an important topic is endorsed in our curriculum and outreach.

IMPACT EXAMPLE

The Prince Sultan University is involved in several industrial collaborations that are leading the way in the search for alternative energy sources. One such example comes from our Renewable Energy Lab, who are in cooperation with Power and Telecom Technologies Co., KFB Holding Group, Riyadh for a collaborative consultancy project on investigations on minimizing electricity cost and feasibility study of self-sustainable campus.

The main objective of the project is to study PSU Lighting electricity network to provide Strategic solutions as per the sustainable development goals (SDG 12, 13, 17)

  • Clear plan for executing energy saving measures by identifying the energy Intensive electrical utilities inside the campus
  • Economic analysis for power quality improvement and energy savings
  • Identifying the electrical inefficient processes in the campus
  • Financial benefit (reduction in the billing cost), investment and payback period

Research

Renewable Energy lab, PSU is showing a serious commitment to encourage its researchers to increase their productivity in this field.

The technology augmenting the human civilization in a significant stage is none other than artificial intelligence which has adopted human thinking level power and working as per level of the human brain, sometimes more than that also. From this point of view, the birth of machine learning and deep learning happens which are part of AI and which are basically the tool where machine learns from a human being based on data, pattern, and images. Sometimes it is very difficult for the human being to handle a huge amount of data manually, then the importance of machines is realized.
