Benefits of Green Building
To reduce the environmental impact of urban communities, sustainable development is crucial. The building structures address almost 40% of the world’s emissions, and it is expected to double by 2060. Except if the new buildings and structures have green design plans, emissions will keep on developing at a similar speed.
The benefits of green structures are not just ecological – they additionally have a lower ownership cost over the long run, and they are more likely to be noticed by potential occupants. Green building owners make an extra contribution beyond what is required by law. Green building features increases the construction cost; however, they are recovered during the entire life cycle of the building by the savings achieved due to green designs. Green building owners are making efforts in achieving decarbonization targets, and they should be rewarded for it.
Some of the green design features can be Cogeneration, Fuel Cells, Solar Photovoltaic Panels, Solar thermal collectors, central chiller plant, geothermal heating and cooling, rainwater harvesting, grey and black water recycling, LED & Day lighting, occupancy sensing lighting controls, energy recovery ventilation, low flow plumbing fixtures, micro wind turbine, air filtration, electric load shifting, etc.
