IEN is making the case for mandatory energy labeling of buildings in Malaysia in the article "Energy Efficiency is the Lowest Hanging Fruit". The title is a direct quote from the Malaysian Minister of Energy (YB Yeo Bee Yin, MESTECC). The article draws upon the experiences in the European Union where energy labeling of building has been mandatory for more than ten years already. The article also touches on the new Malaysian 5-star National Building Energy Label, which for now is mandatory for government buildings - a good start - hopefully to be expanded to buildings nationwide. The article appeared in the GreenRe BUILD bulletin, issue 2/2019.
