Green Energy Office, Bangi
The Green Energy Office Building recognised in short, GEO Building is an administration- cum-research office for Malaysian Green Technology Corporation, following the success of the Low Energy Office (LEO Building) which hosted the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA) in Putrajaya.
The GEO building is a pilot project, a demonstrator building which marked another milestone towards greater promotion and adoption of sustainable building concept in the Malaysian building sector. It is the only such building in Malaysia that integrates the Energy Efficiency, EE and Renewable Energy, RE in one working demonstrator building. The GEO building sited on a 5-acre site in Seksyen 9, Bandar Baru Bangi, Selangor, Malaysia.
The GEO building was designed to be very energy efficient, thus consuming very little fossilfuels with energy index (designed) of 65 kWh/m2year; compared to typical conventional office building in Kuala Lumpur of 250 to 300 kWh/m2year. It was built on a concept which focused on the green technology innovation to minimize energy demand load, efficient use of fossil fuel via taking into account the environmental concern, the usage of renewable energy but without compromising user comfort and safety. Some of the amount of energy used by the building is counter balanced by the amount of energy generated by its own renewable energy power generation system.
