High energy consumption per capita reported in our country has shown a significant issue pertaining to the overconsumption of electricity. This issue has become a problem when the negative effects of climate change are felt by citizens. Thus, public must be taught to be energy-saving conscious, especially from their young age. However, there is a lack of such education material to teach the young generations. Thus, this report presents an education kit, which consists of an education website, a prototype and a case study, which aims to increase the awareness of energy-saving in the young minds of the primary school students. The website acts as an interactive tool for students to learn about energy-saving and how the prototype works. The prototype consists of an intelligent lighting device that uses a combination of sensors, or dual-technology to reduce unnecessary electricity consumption of lighting in a target building. The case study focuses on academic building Academic Building 2 in Univerisiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP), where the lighting consumption pattern is studied, and how the intelligent lighting system can help to reduce the unnecessary electricity wastage within lecture room in the campus. The methodology used is Rapid Application Development (RAD) cycle and prototyping, where the website and the prototype are developed and tested on a regular basis. Findings have shown that UTP is consuming a very high amount of electricity, and the intelligent lighting system is estimated to reduce up to 36.58% of electricity spent on lighting in Academic Building 2. In short, the whole package is interactive and educative to the primary school students to learn about energy-saving in an unprecedented way.
