Conservation and management of energy and power in any sector especially in large institutes, is of much significance. Energy efficient electrical systems lead to energy efficient delivering systems by keeping the power losses minimum. Energy audit is the best solution for the energy conservation where the system is verified and observed to reduce energy consumption without any negative effect on the system. It is an energy audit of a given case study of an accommodation area, a Boys Hostel (ALI Hall) of Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan Pakistan. It is the comprehensive energy audit of hostel with tariff C-2b (29) T and 11.21 rupees per unit. Hostel is estimated as consuming 44836.42 units and cost of 502616 rupees. This survey and analysis suggests certain recommendations for energy savings and to reduce unit consumption up to 20098.572 and cost of 225305 rupees.
