Visit and internship program at Al-Farabi Kazakh National University, Almaty, Kazakhstan on 1-12 September 2017
Mr. Andri Setiyawan, Programmer of UI GreenMetric, had the opportunity to visit and internship program at Al-Farabi Kazakh National University, Almaty, Kazakhstan on 1-12 September 2017. For 12 days, he learned about system sustainability management office, information and data collection related to sustainability and studied a variety of innovations and best practices carried out in Al-Farabi Kazakh National University, especially in the field of energy management and sustainability.
Al-Farabi Kazakh National University has the largest campus in Kazakhstan with an area of 100 hectares, in one of the most beautiful areas of Almaty. The education infrastructure of the campus consists of 13 education buildings with a total area of 165,000 m² and scientific laboratories with a total area of 18,940 m².
Al-Farabi Kazakh National University team who submit UI Greenmetric data under the Faculty of Geography and Environmental Science Section, led by Prof. Dr. Vitaly Salnikov Geogr.Sci.. Mr. Andri had the opportunity to meet and discuss with him directly. In this discussion, the KazNU would make effort to submit questionnaire their data well. So, the KazNU Ranking can increase.
Currently, the KazNu has evolved into an implementation of Green energy with Green Techno Park (GTP). GTP has several renewable energy innovations, which are
1. Water Management
Using the artificial river in the KazNU, the water flow is fitted with generator
2. Waste Management
Using food waste
3. Solar Energy Management
Using Solar Panel
4. Wind Energy Management
5. Hydrogen Energy Management
in the development stage, there is no prototype
Monitor of renewable energy
Prototype of waste management
Prototype of renewable energy
Although for now, the innovation is still a prototype, possibly several years ahead the KazNU can realize the prototype of this renewable energy in the campus.
For Electricity, the KazNU does not use many LEDs, but they use other tools to save electricity consumption in lights. This tool made from Germany. All of the KazNU use this tool for the lamp.
