Abstract: In recent years, the application and studies of energy efficiency or energy conservation become increasingly important especially with 24 hours operation building such as airport terminal building. Airports are very energy-intensive areas because of the large area of building such as restaurants, shops, immigration and check in hall, offices and etc. These areas are equipped with air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation system, the high power demand for lighting and electrical equipment and energy requests from many facilities within the airport area. In this project, a case study of T3 was selected to study the energy conservation method adopted and their contribution towards energy efficient building. Besides, it also aim to verify the claim T3 as ‘sustainable building’ through the assessment of BCA green marks scheme. The green approach adopted in T3 was to aim for an energy-efficient building, employing innovation technologies and integrating concepts such as daylighting system with movable perforated sun-shading system, movable façade sun-shading system, lifts and escalators, ACMV system and energyefficient lighting system. A detailed comparison analysis of electricity bills between T1, T2, T3 and Budget Terminal were therefore analyze in order to determine the energy efficiency of each terminal building. The results showed that, T3 consumed an average of 10,355MWh in year 2008 and the EEI index is 24kWh/m2/month, which has lowest EEI index as compared to T1, T2 and Budget Terminal. Therefore, T3 has the better energy efficient performance as compared to the others terminal building. From the Green Mark preliminary assessment, T3 has achieved a Green Mark score of 72 points and a Green Mark Certified status under the Green Mark award rating. Meanwhile, the consultant view that T3 are able to score an additional 5.35 points which will constitute to Green Mark score of 77 points and awarded the status of Green Mark Gold. Although the status of assessment for T3 is Green Mark certified building, the point assessed are subject to modification and approval from BCA.
