A light emitting diode (LED) is a device which converts electrical energy in to light. It is the newest and most exciting technological advancement in the lighting industry, which appeared relatively recently and gained popularity in our market because of its advantages – high-quality illumination, long life, reduced power consumption.
Post the energy audit of our campus, we realized the scope of replacing all the traditional light sources to LEDs and thereby conserving electricity. Thus, the Department of Physics started a program ‘Enlit Al-Ameen’ to replace all the light sources with LED bulbs and tube lights and thereby transforming Al-Ameen to a hundred percent energy efficient campus in the coming years. Last year we purchased the items for assembling, but due to the unexpected pandemic situation we were not able to assemble the same. Department of Physics in association with Energy Management Cell of Al Ameen College conducted two-day workshop on “Enlit Al Ameen with Eco-friendly and Energy-efficient light” on 5th and 6th November 2020 in the physics lab. Aim of the programme was to upgrade the Al Ameen College as an eco-friendly and energy efficient campus. The trained students of the physics department assembled the tubes. We were able to produce 45 LED tubes and our Vice Principal Prof. Indu G switched on the tubes on November 5, 2020.
