Abstract: 11th Malaysian Plan one of the strategic thrusts to meet the needs of the people which is encouraging green growth for resilience and sustainability as to catalyst Malaysia’s development. In an urban economy now a days, building is the basic human needs as their living spaces. Building development now a days still practicing the conventional method at construction stage which contributes a lot of emissions and consuming high energy. Green sustainable living not only importance to the government, it also importance to the nation’s need as to fulfill the people housing needs. One of the most important and critical to the nation is energy, the highest percentage of energy and resources in countries the more powerful as a key measurement for its power development. In recent years, Malaysia has built some world class green buildings with awarded by green rating tool called as Green Building Index (GBI) system but the idea of green buildings for general masses is in beginning stage. In this research, renewable energy should be implemented to optimize energy use and achieve goals of green building. This research aims at studying the ways to enhance in green building by material selection of house prototype. Literature review indicates that the method of energy conservation can be lowered to two design strategies: passive (architectural) and active (mechanical). The objectives of this research are to investigate the best way in enhancement green building technology, to minimize energy consumption and to pursue green growth for sustainability and to improve the effectiveness of the construction technology in achieving sustainable green building. The result an enhancement in green building prototype evaluate by some calculation which called Return on Investment (ROI), Life Cycle Cost (LCC) or payback.
