Renewable energy resources like wind and solar energy have the tendency to become a regenerative energy without causing damage to environmental. One of the methods is the implementation of the piezoelectric transducer (PZT) in the building structure. PZT is a material that produces electricity when it is stress and strain. In addition, they also can generate electricity with the application of some stimulus such as heat, stress or light. This study is conducted to determine the optimum voltage that will be produced by PZT from heat and determine the depth of piezoelectric transducer will be embedded in the sample. Eight (8) samples are prepared with dimension 150 mm x 150 mm x 150 mm and the depth of PZT in the sample is 0, 25, 50 and 75 mm. Two (2) samples were prepared for each depth. The data from the field experiment were collected by using multi-meter. The data were recorded in every 1 hour for 24 hours starting from 1 AM to 1 AM for the next day for three day. From this study, the amount of voltage generated by PZT can be used for other devices and the application of piezoelectric in the building structure can be beneficial in generating voltage while reducing the heat island effect.
