Description



Synopsis

Energy demand (both residential and commercial buildings) is rising around the world because of population growth and increased access to power through rapid urbanisation. These increases significantly impact the environment due to the processing of electricity from fossil fuels in heavy-duty power generation plants. There is a need to carefully examine ways to reduce the greenhouse effect and global warming by eliminating the role of fossil fuels. Therefore, public awareness in energy conservation towards the building industry is vital especially for building owners and engineers. This sharing session will give the audience a glimpse on how a mechanical engineer contributes to sustainable development and sustainability approach in the building industry.
