Energy Conservation and Architecture
Buildings are the major source of global demand for energy and materials that produce byproduct greenhouse gases (GHG). Slowing the growth rate of GHG emissions and then reversing it is the key to addressing climate change. As of July 2010, 73% of the 30 largest U.S. Architecture / Engineering firms, responsible for over $100 billion in construction annually, have adopted and are implementing this change. Green building (also known as green construction or sustainable building) refers to both a structure and the using of processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building's life-cycle. The common objective is that green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by: Efficiently using energy, water, and other resources, reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation. Inefficient home energy use is not only costly, but also contributes to the growth of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the major cause of climate change. Through integrated site design, a comprehensive approach to sustainable building and site design, sustainable residential landscape architecture practices can not only improve the environment, but also increase energy efficiency. Integrated site design is a framework for increasing the quality of the built environment, and involves maximizing existing natural systems to minimize energy usage. These types of designs leverage the many benefits of natural systems, thereby significantly cutting down external energy use. Decreased energy usage also means homes are more resilient to shifts in the availability of energy and climate change. Energy conservation measures include building orientation, structural changes, renewable power sources, fuel switching, hot water generation, lighting, air conditioning and energy efficient equipment. Renewable energy in design is efficient as it does not consume fossil fuel, produces power without noise, smoke or pollution and required lesser maintenance. This track also discusses renewable energy investment and business opportunities esp. solar energy investment and business opportunities.
