This paper presents the study concerning floating buildings in terms of energy efficiency performance and improving awareness to build them. It includes their capacity to deal with climate change by leading the use and implementation of innovative technologies in the built environment. Comparing floating buildings with land-based buildings reveals several advantages including the use of renewable energy sources and embarks on developing new settlement planning. This paper presents a review of the principal features of floating buildings that have a direct impact on global energy supplies and alternative renewable energy sources. Development of floating buildings needs the implementation of new technology, social and community knowledge. The new knowledge and experience gained in floating buildings can lead to optimum future approaches. This paper presents guidelines for developing sustainability strategies or decision-making frameworks for offshore renewable energy facilities. It will analyze example projects built on the seas in relation to offshore wind energy, wave energy and photovoltaic cells. The development and assessment of sea energy sources should be considered as renewable energy source. It also provides new strategies and methods to reduce climate crisis regarding floating architecture and promoting offshore energies as renewable energy resources. This paper highlights the importance of relevance to floating buildings as strategies for adapting to climate change and clarifies that offshore renewable energy resource should be focused in the study of future sustainable development and energy efficiency targets.
