This book covers various topics related to green building advancements like smart materials, renewable energy for the building, building integrated greenery systems, and storage techniques_ A Nobel idea to combine all these aspects of green building technologies and highlights the different standards to achieve a self-sustainable building makes this book globally acceptable. This book answers why green buildings and sustainable design have become increasingly important in recent years and how to lessen the negative impact of buildings on the environment and promote the health and well-being of humans. It also highlights the importance of smart building materials and their conjugation with active and passive renewable energy sources. It emphasizes how a green building design and construction provide occupants a thermal comfort zone and a healthier environment. Moreover, it suggests a way to use renewable energy to make net-zero emission and net-zero energy consumption buildings and to tackle the intermittent nature of non-conventional energy sources different energy storage techniques for the building have been discussed.
