As the end of the UN Conference on Climate Change (COP21) nears, experts and scholars in the energy, architecture and meteorology fields from both sides of the Taiwan Strait attend the Delta21 Forum organized by Delta Electronics on December 10 at the Grand Palais. They discussed the enormous potential of green buildings in regards to energy conservation and lower carbon emissions from the policy support, energy-efficient technology and architectural design perspective.
Meetings in Paris this week on the climate brought forth a call for more environmentally friendly construction from a new alliance of nations and organizations, the Lima-Paris Action Agenda Focus on Building.
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), presenter of Greenbuild, the world's premier sustainability and green building conference, selected LG Electronics USA as official solar partner for the 2015 trade show this week in Washington, D.C.
Taiwan Green Trade Project Office's trademark "Taiwan Green Product Demo House" is currently presenting 10 quality green products in Japan, at Tokyo's Home & Building Show. The house is an environmentally friendly, reusable exhibition show booth made entirely of state-of-the-art materials that have been certified by both domestic and international green standards.
Energy-efficient homes of the future have arrived and are growing in popularity. According to a report by McGraw Hill Construction, nearly one-third of new single-family homes in the U.S. will be green by 2016. They are energy and natural resource efficient, designed to reduce overall impact on human health and the environment.

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has launched The Hive, the centrepiece of its new learning pedagogy known as the flipped classroom. In this new model of learning, students access course content on their own and the face time with professors in class is devoted to team-based learning.
Low-income housing residents who live in "green" buildings that are built with eco-friendly materials and energy-efficient features appear to have fewer "sick building" symptoms (SBS) than residents of traditionally constructed low-income housing, according to a new study led by researchers at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
Buildings are responsible for 40% of our energy consumption. With this in mind the European research project DIRECTION aims to demonstrate that very low energy buildings can be implemented in practice.
A team of students at Missouri University of Science and Technology spent two years designing and building a solar-powered house filled with smart-living technology. Once it was complete, the students cut it into pieces and shipped it to California on four semitrailers to compete in an international building competition.
