Abstract

Energy is one of main factors having great impacts on economic, political, cultural and social activities and environmental pollution. Vietnam is rapidly developing with high demand for power. As a result, Vietnam always faces power shortage. The development of power consumption indices for buildings (Building Energy Index-BEI, Air conditioning Energy Index-AEI, Office consumption Energy Index-OEI) will help stabilize and use energy sustainably, contributing to the national energy security, reduction of pressure on building new power plants and minimization of the factor causing climate change. The content of the article includes the steps of calculating and recommending the energy consumption indices for office with BEI = 80 - 100 kWh/m2/year; AEI = 55 - 90 kWh/m2/year; OEI = 0.06 - 0.12 kWh/m2/year.
