Abstract: Addressing energy efficiency in the existing building has been acknowledged as one of the most critical yet challenging aspects of reducing our environmental footprint on the ecosystem. This research presents a case study of design measures for energy efficiency retrofit in Engineering faculty building in Federal University of Technology Akure. An analysis of energy performance was carried out to access various energy consumption equipment in the building. And most of the components used are not efficient to meet the energy demand in the building. The findings establish significant benefits in establishing a retrofit standard in existing buildings.
