1.5.1 Low-carbon integrated building concepts

Course subject(s) 1. Heating and cooling in buildings

In this video you will learn about low carbon integrated building concepts and we will discuss passive, carbon-neutral and circular buildings.

Key Takeaways: 

  • Passive buildings still emit CO2 when energy consumed by the buildings is produced with fossil sources, yet they are a significant improvement from standard buildings.
  • Carbon-neutral buildings are zero fossil fuel buildings.
  • Circular buildings integrate recyclable materials into the construction process.
