• Environmentally Friendly, Sustainable And Intelligent Buildings

    Pages: 12

    12 pages in length. Unarguably, the world's energy demand has increased as a direct relation to the continual rise in global population. What this translates to in correlating statistics is that energy demands throughout the past half century have tripled, the global economy has quintupled and the world population increased twofold (Anonymous, 1997). In the not-too-distant future - with regard to history's timeline - there will come a point when fossil fuels will be depleted and humans will be forced to find alternative sources with which to power such equipment as heating/cooling units and myriad others that utilize conventional energy choices in order to create buildings that are highly efficient, comfortable, green, safe and secure environments. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
