Students learn sustainable design from energy commission diamond building

Bachelor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering students from SEGi University recently visited the Energy Commission Diamond Building in Putrajaya to learn about sustainable building concepts. The 36 students and 8 lecturers who attended were exposed to the building’s four main aspects of sustainable design: energy efficiency, water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and outdoor environmental quality. 

Delegates were shown the building’s iconic diamond-shaped dome, which was designed to meet the expected daylight and energy performance. Furthermore, the building is designed with a BEI of 85kWh/m2 per year at 2,800 hours usage – a 65% reduction in energy consumption. The building’s average BEI is currently 65kWh/m2 per year.
