The energy management is crucial in the present time, as proper energy utilization will improve industry competitiveness and ensure a more sustainable energy in future. The focus of this project is on building's energy management system where the main purpose is to use of energy efficiently and reduce energy consumption. There are several factors which contribute to the energy consumption of buildings in Malaysia butthe major factors are lighting as well as cooling. In 9th Malaysian plan, the aim is to ensure that efficient utilization of energy resources and minimization of wastage; and the focus will be on energy efficiency initiatives, particularly in the industrial, transport and commercial sectors as well as in government buildings. Software to estimate cooling load has been produced and in many ways will help a lot in identifying the energy use for a particular area. A prototype of an area which is well equipped and system for energy efficiency and saving is produced. The system is used for controlling the energy consumption of lighting and cooling. For lighting system, the use of occupancy sensor for controlling the on and off of the lights will definitely reduce the energy wastage. Besides, using the energy efficient equipment such as energy saver bulb can definitely lower the power consumption. As for cooling system, the temperature surrounding is monitored by the temperature sensor and the microcontroller will control the temperature of the air-conditioning system depends on the room temperature at that time. In addition, the occupancy sensor will send signal to the controller either to on or off depending on the present of people in the particular room. A small feature is added into the system where the blind used is automated using the photo sensor to control the amount of lights getting into the room.
