In a world where energy consumption is more than the production capacity, there are various reasons that give more force to the lacks when it comes to providing electric service: climatic phenomena, slight investments in this area, and the lack of technologies in order to generate resources.
Engineers and architects are before an enormous challenge and an engagement with the environment. In most of the countries, the construction sector demands more than 50% of energy consumption globally. It is necessary to create alternative in other to sharpen the use of energy from the execution of works to the occupation of the building.
This new labor tendency is under a sustainable construction parameter that marks a milestone in the real state world. Reducing effectively the energetic requirements and incorporating technologies, introducing environmentally friendly materials and practices is the common pattern in those enterprises interested on contributing to the planet.
The new technologies represent the best ally in the construction sector. There is specially designed equipment that guarantees the rational use of electric energy. Using illumination in a defined schedule is an excellent option to save some money and to have more efficient energy consumption. The programing of systems based on movement sensors make easier the process because they detect the presence of workers in every space and they reduce the unnecessary use of energy.
The combination of natural and artificial light is the perfect formula to promote an efficient work. It is time to integrate new elements in constructions such as solar and Eolic power since they are the best options to avoid using electric energy.
It is necessary to take some measures that allows to have a harmonious work with our planet:
- Using low-consumption illumination known as saving light bulbs
- Renewing machinery and equipment that demand less energy
- Avoid leaving chargers plugged and eliminating the “stand by” option from electrical gadgets.
The process of adaptation of the construction enterprises to these work formulas may vary regarding the economic possibilities and the intentions of the people in charge. These small steps will take us to a goal. The results will be greater as long as more companies join to these initiatives.
