When the term conservation of energy is used in engineering of energy, it usually means to optimize the usage of energy. The aim of this procedure is to identify the energy reduction demand and alternative energy to improve the conservation of energy in building. Energy consumption in buildings is a major share of the world’s total end use of energy. The rapidly growing world energy use has already raised concerns over supply difficulties and heavy environmental impacts such as ozone layer depletion, global warming and climate change. Due to the environment impact, this paper will also discuss the alternative energy can be implemented in order to conserve energy in buildings. There are two ways to reduce energy demand which are by wall insulation and location of the building. Besides that, the author is also introducing solar active and passive system as alternative energy to conserve more energy. This paper presents a detailed research to investigate on energy reduction demand and presents solar active and passive system as alternative energy. In addition, introduction of high efficiency instruments such as air conditioning system and lighting system shall enhance the performance of energy conservation of energy. An integrate tool kit called TRNSYS software to perform the analysis on simulation of energy conservation in building. By using TRNSYS software, we are able to summarize the ideal configuration of data needed for conservation of energy in building. Graph of heat distribution will be the main key component to indicate the energy conservation in building. Any data or researched been done will be incorporated into the software to simulate necessary results
