Environmental Revolution

\u201c The pace of the Environmental Revolution will have to be
far quicker than that of its predecessors.The Agricultural
Revolution began some 10,000 years ago, and the
Industrial Revolution has been under way for two
centuries. But if the Environmental Revolution is to
succeed ,it must be compressed into a few decades.In
contrast with the Industrial Revolution ,which was based
on a shift to fossil fuels ,this new transformation will be
based on a shift away from fossil fuels.\u201d

Energy Efficient Buildings
Buildings contribute to serious environmental problems because of

excessive consumption of energy and other natural resources.Energy
used for heating, cooling, ventilation and lighting cause severe
depletion of environmental resources.

Steps advocated for adopting an integrated approach to building design
are:
\u2022 Solar passive techniques in a building design to minimise load on
conventional systems
\u2022 Design energy-efficient lighting and HVAC
\u2022USE RE systems (Solar PV and Solar Water Heating)to meet a
part of building load
\u2022 Use low energy materials and methods of construction
