Energy Management in buildings is a sound and respected engineering course. Careful use of energy and resources represents a technical, economical and ecological challenge as well as being one which is important for survival and which can only be mastered by highly qualified engineers. The main focus lies on the interaction between the building as a structure and the technical facilities. The main aim of my work is to utilize the natural thermal condition that exist presently in the building structure to a maximum by reducing the use of artificial thermal sources such as heaters, air conditioners etc. In this paper, I have considered 9 factors that influence the building structure as main factors. By analyzing these factors several possible solutions can be arrived for the utilization of natural energy instead of using artificial sources.
