Abstract

The world is haunted by sky high energy price and uncertain energy supply. With the ever increasing domestic energy demand but limited reserves, Malaysia that has long claim herself as a petroleum producer would become a net importer in less than 20 years. As buildings are among the major contributors to nation’s total energy usage, the professional of facilities management should take proactive role to manage building’s energy usage effectively and efficiently. The discussion in this paper focuses on four new dimensions of facilities management in managing energy: exploring alternative energy resources, embracing energy policies, implementing energy management and improving energy awareness and energy-use behavior. This paper endeavors to be a catalyst to alert the nation as well as the world on how the professional of facilities management can contribute a sustainable energy future.
