The JUST Energy Conservation Program has three primary objectives. Firstly, it aims to encourage the adoption of clean and renewable energy sources, contributing to a greener and more sustainable energy landscape. Secondly, it strives to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, playing a crucial role in combatting climate change and reducing our environmental footprint. Lastly, the program seeks to lower energy expenses, benefitting both the environment and organizations by achieving cost savings through energy-efficient practices. For more information, click here.
Consumption on Campus.
The total electricity usage of JUST Campus in 2022 was 30059063Kw while it decreased compared to the pandemic year due to the complete opening after the pandemic in 2022. On the main campus area of JUST University electricity is used for lighting, cooling, heating, computers, and laboratory appliances the campus also provided King Abdullah University Hospital KAUH and The new field hospital which builds post-pandemic to support KAUH.

Renewable Energy Sources.
university has already completed the construction of a 5-MWatt solar
system, generating 8 million KWh of clean energy. Additionally, plans
are underway for a 20 MWatt solar system, expected to be operational
within two years. Together, these solar systems will produce a total of
40 million KWh, effectively eliminating the university's electricity
costs and meeting the rising energy demand. For more information, please click here.
Green Building Implementation.
JUST buildings were designed by a Japanese architect back in 1980. The
design was progressive and ahead of his time by considering elements of
sunlight breakers, natural light and ventilation. The design also reduced
exposure to direct sun light in the parts of buildings facing the sun to reduce
the heat in the summer. New buildings at JUST are also designed on the same
principles. Recently, Jordan University for Science and
Technology (JUST) and UNICEF signed a five-year agreement aimed at exploring
innovative approaches, technologies and designs to address key challenges in
the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector in the country. The agreement
will enable the two institutions to undertake research and co-design and
implement innovative projects to ensure sustainable, appropriate and scalable
solutions for provision of water, sanitation and hygiene services. UNICEF will
also support the establishment of a “WASH Innovation Hub” incubator at the
University campus in Ramtha that will serve as a laboratory for designing and
testing innovative solutions. For more information, click here.
Smart Building Implementation.
operation of the B.M.S building monitoring and control system in many
university sites by the engineers and technicians of the Operation and
Maintenance Unit at the University of Science and Technology, where the
lighting and temperature are monitored
and controlled, and the alarm systems are inspected also our BMS system is
connected to an application the operators have an access for it so they can
controlled different systems any where they are. The facades of all
buildings are designed to get the maximum natural lighting and visual
continuity, and we use removable sun breakers
to achieve the comfortable lighting and temperature for user, most of
our Ac system is converter and fixed to stop when temperature achieve 23
celsius degree. The Engineering and
Medical colleges buildings facades designed extroverted to the inside court, so the halls and
laboratories are gain natural lighting
and natural ventilation and avoiding direct sun heat,for acknowledgment there
are fountain systems in each court that helps cooling the university surface,
while the outer facades are mostly solid with small architectural openings to
avoid most of heat and get some light from them with the possibility of closing
them with movable sun breakers Or a
normal curtains if the situation becomes troublesome. For more information, click here.
Several innovative energy conservation projects were implemented. Examples of such projects include On-Campus fast and safe EV charger, Solar-powered golf cart for mail/package delivery within JUST's vast campus, and a charging station powered by solar panels as well as pedaling.
