In this paper energy consumption of office buildings have been estimated. Energy consumption of major equipments has been identified. Energy intensity a measure of building performance has been estimated for Malaysia and compared with other countries as well. It has been found that air conditioners are the major energy users (57) in commercial building followed by lighting (19), lifts and pumps (18) and others (6). Different ways/options to reduce/save building energy consumption have been formulated, amount of energy saved by these options have been quantified and emission reduction associated with the above savings have been quantified as well. From the data analysis, it has been found that huge amount of energy can be saved for the above policy measures/ options. Moreover, significant amount of emissions can be reduced for the associated energy savings for different policy/measures.
