|Abstract: ||Renewable energy had always been thought of only as a fuel for generating energy. However, there are many applications of renewable energy that can be incorporated in buildings which can assist in improving the energy efficiency of the buildings. Apart from that, using Renewable energy can help minimize the use of non-renewable energy sources and consequently minimize pollution as well. This chapter discusses the possible applications of renewable energy in Malaysian non-residential buildings as well as its advantages and implications. These renewable energy applications are being put forward as recommendations to be incorporated in the Malaysian Code of Practice on Energy Efficiency for Buildings, which is currently being revised by the Ministry of Energy, Communications and Multimedia. The Code of Practice will be used as a reference document for the Malaysian Uniform Building By-Laws. This commendable effort by the Malaysian Government is a clear portrayal of Malaysia`s effort and support in promoting the development, adoption and wider utilization of renewable energy sources towards a clean and sustainable future.|
