Energy Efficient and Sustainable Buildings
It is predicted that by 2050 the population of our planet will have grown by 3 billion, which means there's going to be many more people to feed, house and sustain. It's also predicted that 70% of the world's population will live in cities, so that means that energy efficient and sustainable building need to be built soon in order to meet demands.
This increase in demand is a fact that can no longer be ignored. The issues of creating buildings to meet the demand without having detrimental effects on other areas needs to be addressed sooner rather than later, because later will undoubtedly be too late to meet energy demands of more people living and working in our cities. These innovative approaches also mean that we can help save the planet by use of renewable energy that will sustain the building by being energy neutral.
Energy efficiency has many positives. It creates jobs, saves money and energy which is going to be essential to both businesses and homes in the future.
In the infographic below we take a look at just how creative, sustainable and energy efficient buildings can be. We take a look at some of the features and creative design concepts that make each of these buildings ‘greener' and more sustainable than their counterparts.
