Energy Efficient Buildings in Malaysia
Ahmad Zairin Ismail, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
Buildings are the largest energy-consuming sector in the world, and account for over one-third of total final energy consumption. They are an equally important source of carbon dioxide emissions. Is achieving significant energy and emissions reduction in the buildings sector a challenging policy goal, here in Malaysia?
Ahmad Zairin Ismail, the National Project Manager of the Building Sector Energy Efficiency Project, for the United Nations Development Programme, joins us to discuss the concept of energy efficiency in buildings, specifically here in Malaysia.
