Abstract

Residential and commercial buildings consume large percentage of annual energy consumption such as in lighting, ventilation and electrical equipment or appliances. Thus reducing its energy consumption may lead to reduction of energy need. The objectives of this paper are to discuss on the strategies for energy efficiency in buildings located in the hot and humid climates and to discuss current research on building's energy efficiency. Malaysia has been selected as the case study. This article concludes that there are efforts by governmental and nongovernmental agencies to improve building's energy efficiency, and there are many strategies and technologies available to be adopted in buildings for energy efficiency.
