The energy audit program was carried out for Faculty of Engineering Technology (FTK), University Malaysia Pahang by internal energy audit team. This paper presented annual energy consumption trend for FTK building, measurement finding for room data survey (air conditioning temperature and humidity comfort performance & CO2 level for air quality) and lighting, Building Energy Index (BEI) value and appropriate recommendation in regards of energy saving practice and technological solution. According to those analysis, value for Building Energy Index (BEI) in FTK building is 98.035 kWh/m2/year, Air Conditioning Energy Index (ACEI) is 73.254 kWh/m2/year while for Lighting Energy Index (LEI) is 11.402 kWh/m2/year. Total energy consumption estimated for 2017 is 31, 7951.375 kWh per year. The implementation of the proposed energy conservation measures were expected to give positive results where the total cost saving per year is estimated about RM 48,551.20. Finally, it was recommended to implement three major energy conservation measures (ECMs) in specific: implementation of Sustainable energy management system (SEMS), maintenance of air conditioning system and retrofitting of LED lighting. As a result, FTK is targeted to achieve
30% annual energy saving about from the total energy consumption.
