In recent years, improving energy efficiency in the building sector has been a major trend globally due to its high consumption of electricity. The purpose of this study is to implement a data-driven method of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) to predict a building's energy consumption at one of the ministry buildings in Putrajaya. The prediction models were developed based on historical data on the electricity consumption of the building and weather forecasts including temperature, relative humidity and pressure from September 2009 to April 2017. Various configurations were tested based on the 'trial and error' method to improve the accuracy of the model. The forecasting model achieved 0.8237% of Mean Absolute Percentage Error (MAPE) and 99.17% of accuracy. The findings of the study will enable the management to model and predict the power usage of the facility using ANN in WEKA. The power usage prediction will help to provide input in understanding the future energy consumption behavior of the facility and will enable the management to assess potential energy efficiency improvements and behavior modification of the building towards achieving higher energy savings.
