The process of defining a problem is often called as the reference mode in the SD problem defined in this model is the increasing CO 2 emission trend due to energy consumption (petroleum, natural gas, and electricity) of the U.S.

residential building stock. As can be seen from Fig. 2, annual CO 2 emission rates have an increasing pattern due to various parameters such as Cited by:   In light of the federal government’s goal of improving the energy efficiency of new and existing buildings, model energy codes are becoming more stringent.

The effort to increase energy efficiency has been further emphasized by initiatives set forth by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s State Energy Program.

The DOE High-Performance Buildings Program Design Approach Although there's no concrete definition of a high-performance building, InterNACHI defines it as a building with energy, economic and environmental performance that is substantially better than standard practice.

It's energy-efficient, so it saves money and natural resources. In recent years, sustainability concept has become the common interest of numerous disciplines. The reason for this popularity is to perform the sustainable High-Performance Green Buildings Act of 2006 book.

When the High-Performance Buildings Group at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) recently completed evaluation studies of six newly constructed high-performance buildings, it determined that although the buildings did save a significant amount of energy, they weren't saving as much energy as the group had predicted.

The Living Building Challenge is an international sustainable building certification program created in by the non-profit International Living Future Institute. It is described by the Institute as a philosophy, advocacy tool and certification program that promotes the most advanced measurement of sustainability in the built environment.

It can be applied to development at all scales, from. One important outcome of this project will be the development of a long-term demonstration program that will provide teaching and research tools for many decades.

In addition, we will develop models that will be available for others to use, present our findings to others, and are planning a book tentatively titled “The Greening of Aiken: Applying Ecological Design in a Participatory Learning.
