About Us

The Building Sector Energy Efficiency Project (BSEEP) is a national project to reduce the annual growth rate of greenhouse gas emission from the building sector in Malaysia. The project is supported by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and funded by Global Environment Facility (GEF). Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR), an agency under the Ministry of Works is the executing entity and implementing partner of the project.

The project is in line with the GEF’s climate change strategic program on Promoting Energy Efficiency in Residential and Commercial Buildings (SP-1). It is comprised of activities aimed at improving energy efficiency and promoting the widespread adoption of energy efficient building technologies and practices in the Malaysian Building Sector.
Reduction in the annual growth rate of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from the Malaysia buildings sector
Improvement of the energy utilization efficiency in Malaysian Buildings, particularly those in the commercial and government sectors, by:
  • Promoting the energy conserving design of new buildings
  • Improving the energy utilization efficiency in the operation of existing buildings
  • Clear and effective system of monitoring and improving the energy performance of the building sector
  • Implementation of, and compliance to, favorable policies that encourage the application of EE technologies in the country’s buildings sector
  • Availability of financial and institutional support for initiatives on EE building technology applications
  • Enhanced awareness of the government, public and the buildings sector on EE building technology applications
  • Improved confidence in the feasibility, performance, energy, environmental and economic benefits of EE building technology applications leading to the replication of the EE technology application demonstrations.
