International Solar Energy and Green Building Conference & Exhibition

Maybe you think that green buildings are too expensive because maximizing profits and lowering building costs often trump sustainable design and energy efficiency considerations. But consider these variables: Green building incorporates design, construction, and operations practices that use sustainable materials in construction, achieve energy efficiency and water savings, and improve indoor air quality, among other measurable targets.

Green building developers consider a building or project’s location, selecting sites with exposure to sunlight and sites that are close to public transportation, grocery stores, and other amenities.

Why not cut costs in the long run and follow South Africa and China’s lead in bringing nature back into your developments.

The International Solar Energy and Green Building Conference & Exhibition, organized by the SNEC PV POWER EXPO is a not to be missed event. The world is evolving, are you?
