Electricity generation is one of the contributors of CO2 production. Malaysian government is enhancing the use of coal up to 50% by 2030. On the other hand, this will give an impact of the emission pattern in Malaysia, which will lead to pollute the environment. This thesis focuses on the estimation of energy use in government building in peninsular Malaysia. Potential impacts of energy efficiency and DSM program to electricity consumption and generation is estimated. It analyzes the CO2 emission in generation before and after replacing the standards practice condition. Ultimately, these impacts will affect the national benefits if inefficient appliances for commercial sector are not replaced. Air conditioners are shown to be the major energy users (57%) in government building, followed by lighting (19%) and other equipments (24%). In order to show the effectiveness of the energy efficient appliances, four scenarios have been discussed. It is estimated that 1072 GWh can be save and a whopping of 1200 million kg of emission of CO2 can be achieved by employing these energy efficient (EE) appliances. These estimations rely on a bottom-up model of the energy system LEAP. The presented work shows that the Demand Side Management (DSM) programs and energy efficiency measures can reduce the growth of greenhouse gases.
