40% – is design

an extention of the previous post :

“48% (of US) energy consumption that can be attributed to the building sector, most of which – 40% of total consumption – can be attributed just to building operations. That’s heating, lighting, cooling, and hot water.

the major part, you see – 40% – is design

Every time we design a building, we set up its energy consumption pattern and its greenhouse gas emissions pattern for the next 50-100 years. That’s why the building sector and the architecture sector is so critical.”

so how do we approach changing this 40% figure – a 6 star environmental solution in Melbourne
