  The recently completed Taiwan Photon Source (TPS) is one of the brightest synchrotron X-ray sources in the world. It will offer 500 mA beam current at 3 GeV for all kinds of different subject experiments and novel scientific ideas. This facility will be the most inspiring trigger to Taiwan's scientific research in the twenty-first century. In order to make sure this giant machine operate properly, the utility system plays a very important role. Not only for the giant machine, the utility system also takes responsibility for providing a cozy environment for all staff. Furthermore, the requirements of air condition in some critical areas are very strict even to ± 0.1°C temperature accuracy. All of it cost a large amount of energy to satisfy everyone's demand. According to the annual budget report of NSRRC, the total charge of electricity and water was more than 80 million N.T. dollars per year before TPS project, and increased by nearly twice after TPS inauguration. Since the government budget is limited, the whole utility system must be operated under more economic ways to use energy more efficiently.

  National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center (NSRRC), Taiwan currently operates two synchrotrons, the Taiwan Light Source (TLS) and Taiwan Photon Source (TPS). The former one has been operated for more than 22 years, while the latter is in commissioning phase. We target of the beam current on 500 mA. Thus, the power consumption increases higher than ever. Currently, the contract power capacities of the TLS and TPS with the Taiwan Power Company (TPC) are 5.5MW and 7.5MW, respectively. The ultimate power consumption of the TPS is estimated about 12.5MW. To cope with increasing power requirement, we have conducting several power saving schemes for years. This paper presents our latest power schemes, which include installation of power saving fan for the cooling tower, adjustment of supply air temperature according to the atmosphere enthalpy, replacement of old air conditioning unit (AHU), power consumption control by the operation of chillers, and power factor improvement.
