Paper Title :
Factors Leading to High Energy Consumption in Residential Buildings in Saudi Arabia

Author :Mana Alyami, Siddig Omer

Abstract : In developing countries like Saudi Arabia, the experience of a rapid rate of urbanisation and infrastructure expansion, especially with respect to buildings is immense. The role of buildings is even more important as they account for around 80% of the total national electricity consumption. Based on the 2030 local energy consumption trends, forecasts indicate an increase in domestic energy consumption with a growth rate which could reach 4 to 5% annually. A significant portion of this energy consumption growth results from the inefficient use of energy, and absence of coordinated enforcement and stakeholder engagement.This paper reports on an exploratory public survey to elicit information on respondent’s views on issues such as the awareness and applications of sustainable building. The aim of this article is to identify factors influencing the development of sustainable buildings and energy consumption in residential sector in Saudi Arabia. A structured questionnaire was designed and electronically distributed to collect information from respondents across Saudi Arabia, employing a random sampling technique (Snowball Technique). The findings have significant implications for policy makers and practitioners. The implementation of sustainable residential buildings code requires strong support from the public, government and the housing industry. Keywords - Energy Efficiency, Consumption, Building, Design, Performance
