The purpose of this study is to investigate on how the designs of the energy efficiency technology used in the Green building technology for building can be replicated in terms of its performance and application. The energy efficiency technology can be translated to the possible gains in playing the role of reducing the carbon footprint and also the cost savings derived from transferring the EE technology to existing building can encourage all new and future development to actively engage in the Green Building Technology. The saving derived from the implementation of green technology systems implemented in some commercial and office building in Malaysia can be shared to help other developers, Engineers, Architect, and building owners to establish that the building energy systems’ particularly the air-conditioning system and its subsystems’ is able to play a major role in the possibility of creating awareness of Energy Efficiency technology and eventually cost saving for both commercial and office building in Malaysia. The investigate conducted and data quantify from the 2 scenario; firstly by retrofitting of the existing building and , secondly data from EE designed office buildings’, the observation is clear that the energy efficient technology can be replicated and will yield a potential saving s even for existing building owners who have retrofitted their building. Whereas for building that is designed to be energy efficient has demonstrated that there are great possibility of cost saving and at the same time play its part in helping in promoting Green technology as part of their corporate social responsibility’s role to provide a clear perspective to Developers to actively utilize Energy Efficient technology in future developments . The simulation results further verify the correctness of the energy saving potential
