Abstract—In the present era, buildings are highly contributed to both energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission. As a result, energy conservative measures in building is one of the best tool to tackle these issues which become the global concerns. The purpose of this study was aimed to make the assessment for the environmental and economic performances by the implementation of energy conservative measures for the educational buildings in Thailand. The clean development mechanism (CDM) methodology and net present value (NPV) were used for the study analysis. The results demonstrated that among all of the feasible measures, the top three options for environmental performances improvement were building management, high efficiency of air conditioner replacement and solar cell installation. For the Improvement of economic performance, the automatic system control, saving practices, air conditioner maintenance and lighting efficiency improvement were suggested as the solution tools. The obtained results can be useful for the decision makers to make the strategies planning for building sector in the upcoming future.

Index Terms—Educational building, economic performance, energy conservative measure, environmental management.
