Report Buyer, the online destination for business intelligence for major industry sectors, has added a new report showing that widespread concerns over the impact on the environment of building-related carbon emissions have been instrumental in raising the profile of ‘green’ building initiatives.
“Zero and Low Emission Buildings” reports that, as a consequence, the adoption of low-emission building technology has allowed some architects and developers to punch above their weight in an increasingly competitive property market, and seen their work receive international attention.
According to the report, green building techniques will be an important tool for developers and architects if governments intervene to support the construction sector. Authors of the report have identified key areas where governments are attempting to reduce building-related energy use and believe that future support, via public building programmes, will be conditional on the construction industry including low- or zero-emission technology in building designs and development projects.
The authors further believes that when it comes to low-emission technology, architects, developers and planners are finding themselves on a steep learning curve. They note that low-emission building technology goes beyond merely finding alternative ways to keep a house or office warm; it is concerned with all the energy used during a building’s life cycle, including both construction and use. Many so called ‘eco’ houses will employ technology that stores excess heat energy on warm days and retrieves it on cold days.
The report, ‘Zero And Low Emission Buildings’, catalogues energy-saving building technologies ranging from new materials to low-power appliances, and examines a green building market that, as the number of housing starts continues to fall, is shifting towards the retrofitting of low emission solutions into existing buildings. The report concludes that low emission building technology will become part of a broader issue, namely the need for governments to reduce energy use across the board.
