The session is virtual and takes place on the Zoom platform.



In recent years, Malaysian government has started an energy labelling scheme for public buildings and launched the cash voucher subsidy scheme (SAVE3.0) for the most energy efficient household appliances. In a World that needs to fully decarbonise to comply to the Paris Climate Agreement target, the two key factors will be fuel switching (renewable energy) as well as a strong push for energy efficiency.

Building case studies in Malaysia show an attractive payback time for green buildings from energy efficiency alone. Once the other benefits of improved health, wellbeing and occupant productivity are also factored in, it becomes clear that green buildings are an obvious choice, and that ordinary buildings are expensive.
