Towards Sustainable Buildings
Malaysia today is facing a rapid growth in energy demand. Malaysia’s power source has been for years depending highly on fossil fuels, mainly from cool and natural gas. Over the past years, concern has been increased on the effect of fossil fuels emission and its security in the future. As reported by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on its fifth assessment report, ‘’warming of the climate system is unequivocal. The atmosphere and oceans have warmed, the amounts of snow and ice have diminished, sea levels have risen, and the concentrations of greenhouse gases have increased’’. According to BP’s research, carbon dioxide’s emission in Malaysia amounted to 250.3 million tonnes in 2018, up from 241.6 million tonnes in 2017. Sources of emission were constituted largely with electrical consumption which is responsible for the largest share of greenhouse gases in Malaysia.

Malaysia pledged itself in Paris to lower its CO2 emissions by 45 percent from the point of 2005 by 2030, at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change also known as the 2015 Paris Climate and Conferences of the Parties (COP) 21. Thus, increasing demand and conscious to the energy saving have been an interest for most industries and organizations to shift to more economical and environmental management approach to optimize the energy consumption which in correspond would reduce the carbon dioxide emission.

Energy management or management approach refers to energy use regulation, conservation and monitoring in buildings and industries. The control of energy makes it possible for businesses to reduce costs, because energy prices rapidly increase. This also would help to lower carbon emissions, which would effectively encourage renewable energy use and mitigate the risk by reducing energy supply demand by energy management control systems with effective energy management systems.
