Energy efficiency is one of the most important issues for green buildings and their sustainability. This is not only due to the environmental impacts, but also because it incurs significantly high energy cost. The aim of this study is to identify the potential actions required for toll plaza that lead to energy reduction. The data were obtained through set of questionnaire and interviewing targeted respondents, including the employees at toll plaza, and architects and engineers who are directly involved in the design of highway projects. The data was analyzed using descriptive statistical analysis method. The findings of this study are the critical elements that influence the energy usage and factors that lead to energy wastage. Finally, potential actions were recommended to reduce energy consumption in toll plazas.
