How future technology will influence green buildings
Francesca Brady

Technology continues to advance at a rapid pace and we all like to indulge in reveries about the possibilities of tomorrow. Although some modern theories may seem far-fetched, it is safe to say that green technologies are likely to experience a period of rapid growth. We are already witnessing an exciting variety of environmental-friendly applications that make a lot of sense and If things continue in the same direction, we could soon become accustomed to some of the following concepts:

Buildings with organic features

Designers and Engineers are increasingly incorporating natural elements into their designs, as a result, some office buildings are now equipped with ‘green walls’ that absorb CO2 and help to replenish oxygen.

Some office buildings have developed organic gardens that are powered purely by solar energy. These spaces can be used to produce food, while also serving as places of relaxation for Staff and Visitors.

Other buildings are experimenting with solar technology to generate energy for heating etc. In the near future, this might become more commonplace as fossil fuels continue to deplete.

Controlling air quality

Air is obviously an essential resource, and recent studies show that high levels of C02 in an office space can cause health and productivity issues for your team. A modern preventative approach is to install sensors that can be used to monitor the composition of the air inside a space, providing accurate data and highlighting any risks.  

In the future, these systems may become more common as will the construction of ‘passive houses’. Passive buildings are made to be more energy-efficient and heating and cooling them costs considerably less than standard builds. Additionally, air quality is improved as it is circulated and filtered continuously, eliminating staleness and pollutants.

Automation and customisation

An effective way to protect the environment is to optimise energy consumption, in the future, it would be interesting to see how AI develops to tackle this problem. ‘DeepMind’ have already began making notable advances with technology which has allowed them to reduce the amount of electricity Google use for cooling their data centres by up to 40%. According to a report published in The Financial Times on Sunday, in the future, DeepMind wants to help the UK cut its energy consumption by up to 10%.

A DeepMind spokesperson told Business Insider: "As we've said publicly for many months, there's huge potential for predictive machine learning technology to help energy systems reduce their environmental impact. One really interesting possibility is whether we could help the National Grid maximise the use of renewables through using machine learning to predict peaks in demand and supply.

Recycling and waste control

The rational use of resources and awareness about environmental pollution necessitate recycling at a grand scale. As such, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the introduction of zero-waste buildings that aim to re-use resources. For such a thing to happen, buildings may potentially need to incorporate a local recycling centre and a superb waste classification and removal system. The economic implications could also be fruitful, since any recovered materials could be used for practical purposes or resold.

The majority of people are unaware how their daily actions negatively impact the environment and would probably change their habits if they were consistently reminded. It is one thing to optimise a building ecologically, but the final objective should ideally also be about teaching people how to be less wasteful and use resources such as air and electricity more effectively.

Contact us today to find out how to easily map, monitor and measure the things in your space that matter to you and receive notifications before issues occur. At Asset Mapping, we help make smart buildings that are cheaper to operate, kinder to the environment and healthier to work in.
