UI GreenMetric as sustainability-based university rankings has received a worldwide acceptance since its initiation in 2010. One of the criteria for this ranking is the annual electricity consumption of participating Universities. There are some challenges in evaluating the overall data, i.e. some electricity consumption information is missing or may not accurately represent the real condition. There is various information that can be used to calculate the university rank associated with electricity consumption. On the other hand, some external data sources from World Bank on the annual electricity consumption per capita for every country is highly correlated with the electricity consumption in every University. This paper aims to show our evaluation and prediction of the annual electricity consumption from participating university using regression analysis based on the available data of UI GreenMetric and relevant external information. This is conducted using regression analysis on the data submitted in 2017 and the predicted KWH based on the number of full-time student and staff in the university. The result shows that some universities are consuming more electricity than the average KWH used per-capita in their country. The result also shows that the prediction cannot be used accurately, especially for the carbon footprint. This evaluation may help universities to improve their policy in reducing the electricity consumption and the greenhouse gas emission reduction policy, and mainly helps UI GreenMetric to speed up the verification process when necessary
