Gad and Birgit Rausing Library is a multidisciplinary library serving the faculty, students, researchers, and staff of the university. It is providing quality innovativeservices to its' patrons.
Professor Walther Schwarzacher has been appointed as the Dean of the Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering (SBASSE), LUMS, where he will serve for a term of five years. He will also serve as Professor of Physics at the School.
Bringing a wealth of experience from senior academic roles in the UK, Professor Schwarzacher has been a distinguished Professor of Physics at the University of Bristol since 2005. His research portfolio spans electrochemistry, nanoscale physis, materials physics, and ice nucleation. Notably, he chaired the Electrodeposition Division of the Electrochemical Society from 2005 to 2007. With over thirty mentored PhD students, he is a strong advocate for interdisciplinary research, reflected in his thrice-awarded School of Physics Teaching Award.
LUMS hosted senior executives from Honda on November 28, 2023, including Mr. Shinji Aoyama, Executive Vice President and COO of Honda Motor Company; Mr. Noriaki Abe, Chief Officer of Motorcycle and Power Products, and Mr. Toshio Kuwahara, President and CEO of Asian Honda Motor Company. They were joined by members of the Shirazi family Mr. Iftikhar H. Shirazi, Chairman, Atlas Foundation; Mr. Aamir H. Shirazi, President, Atlas Group; Mr. Saquib H. Shirazi, President/Chief Executive Officer, Atlas Honda Limited; and Mr. Ali H. Shirazi, President/Chief Executive Officer, Atlas Battery Limited. They were welcomed by the senior LUMS leadership including Founding Pro Chancellor, Syed Babar Ali; Pro Chancellor, Mr. Abdul Razak Dawood; Rector, Mr. Shahid Hussain; Acting Vice Chancellor and Provost, Dr. Tariq Jadoon; and incoming Vice Chancellor, Dr. Ali Cheema.
In a milestone event, the LUMS Energy Institute (LEI), a research and capacity building centre with a focus on Pakistan’s energy sector, has unveiled a report titled Sustainable Architecture: Advancing Energy Efficient Buildings. The report addresses the acute energy challenge and how adopting energy-efficient practices in residential construction can drastically reduce loads.
While addressing policymakers, regulatory bodies, and key stakeholders, Dr. Fiaz Ahmad Chaudhry, Director, LUMS Energy Institute, said, “Pakistan's expenditure of nearly USD 100 billion on power plants, predominantly for summer cooling loads, is unsustainable. By adopting the energy-efficient practices we can reduce cooling loads by at least 50%, saving billions of dollars.”
The seasonal variation in electricity usage, pronounced by cooling loads during hot summer months, necessitates an additional 18,000 MW of power plant capacity. This extra capacity, largely underutilized for the rest of the year, imposes a staggering cost of nearly $100 billion on the national economy. This operational inefficiency has led to capacity payment obligations surpassing PKR 2 trillion, a financial weight bearing down on a sector that contributes minimally to the country's GDP growth.
