Abstract

Environmental problems are a concern of the world today, considering the exploitation of energy sources from natural resources such as coal and oil causing damage to the environment, humans and ecosystems. Sustainable development programs are strategies to meet current human needs without reducing future needs. Reducing energy consumption is one that can be done in various ways to meet sustainable development programs. 50% of energy consumption is dominated by the building sector, while 50% of building energy consumption is charged by air conditioning. Conservation and energy efficiency of the building load is carried out to achieve the target of potential energy savings of 10-30%. This study aims to analyze the air conditioning loads and conservation and efficiency strategies in the building of Information and Settlement Information Center in Makassar with a target of 10-30% energy savings. This method uses thermal balance analysis by calculating heat energy from external, internal and human heat that will be charged by AC (Air Conditioner). The Conservation Strategy by planning microclimate control with vegetation and the use of materials in building envelopes that can reduce heat and efficiency strategies on thermal comfort by raising the maximum temperature from the comfort standard can save energy from 17-19% energy.The burden on the building sector to reduce the total overall energy consumption of 8-9%.
