This infographic takes a look at energy efficient and sustainable buildings.
It is estimated that by 2050 the Earth’s population will have grown to an incredible 3 billion. With 70% of people choosing to live in cities sustainable and energy efficient buildings are needed sooner rather than later.
The increase in demand is most definitely a certainty that can, and should not, be ignored. The issue of designing and constructing sustainable buildings needs to be addressed now, without having adverse effects on other areas. Creating jobs and saving money, energy efficiency and sustainability will be essential for future businesses and homes.
In the piece below we highlight examples of sustainable and energy efficient buildings which have already been constructed around the world. We delve into the measures put in place to make these creative designs energy efficient by harnessing power from the sun and the wind and using a variety of sustainability innovations.
These buildings show how forward thinking and innovative approaches to design and construction mean that the increase in the population can have less impact on our planet’s natural resources.
