What emerging building technologies are we most likely to see as money is invested to reduce greenhouse gas emissions?
As demand increases for efficient, resilient, and durable buildings, construction materials and technologies are rapidly evolving. Even external technologies that interact with buildings are changing: For example, Vehicle-to-Grid technology allows your electric vehicle car to discharge energy back into the grid, providing storage and load balancing.
As a code official, keeping up-to-date on emerging trends and technologies can help you stay ahead of the curve. Watch this 5-minute video for an introduction to the grid-interactive efficient building (GEB). You will be inspecting these buildings and technologies before you know it!
