A @wwf survey found citizens from four countries (U.S., Mexico, India and Sweden) agreed that #cleanair was top priority for #sustainablecities. It should be clear from the numbers that economists, real estate developers, and #environmentalists should be able to agree on the benefits of #greenbuilding. So, what are they you ask!
According to @worldresources , green building is one of the most affordable ways to curb climate-related emissions. Improvements generally have little to no marginal cost and can result in ROIs in the form of cost savings in as little as 6 months to a year.
Green buildings a a large, long-lasting investment. There is a cost associated with electricity use, #wateruse, #waste, and material resource use in every building. Per WRI: Each additional $1 invested on #energyefficiency avoids more than $2 on energy supply spending, which reduces the overall costs the city and its residents have to pay. Also, #energyefficient buildings typically have longer lifecycles, lower maintenance fees, and cost less to operate.
#Retrofitting makes financial sense: According to @ipcc , “over the whole building stock, the largest portion of #carbonsavings by 2030 is in retrofitting existing buildings and replacing energy-using equipment.” This can result in energy savings of up to 50-75% in commercial buildings that make smart use of energy efficiency measures.
Energy efficient buildings reduce indoor #airpollution and make homes and commercial spaces #healthier places to spend time. They typically have more #naturallight, more comfortable temperatures and increased indoor air quality than traditional buildings. Increased indoor and outdoor #airquality decreases the incidence of illnesses such as lung disease and asthma and lowers the rate of premature deaths.
And #jobs! Energy efficiency already accounts for more than 2 million U.S. jobs—10 times more than oil and gas drilling and 30 times more than coal mining (@nrdc_org ). .

Latest Solar Panel Technologies - Part 2 - Multiple Busbar (BB). We have gone through a lot of new technologies that are employed to produce solar panels on our channel (PERC, Bifacial, Multiple/Multi-Busbar, Shingled cells) & today is the day of discussing Multiple Busbar (BB) Technology.
According to CleanEnergyReviews, Busbars are thin wires or ribbons which run down each cell and carry the electrons (current) through the solar module. As PV cells have become more efficient they, in turn, generate more current thus over recent years most manufacturers have moved from 3 busbars to 5 or 6 busbars. A few manufacturers such as LG energy have gone one step further and developed multi-wire systems using up to 12 very thin round wires rather than flat busbars, explained in more detail below. The compromise is that the busbars actually shade part of the cell and so can slightly reduce performance if they are too large, so they need to be carefully designed.
On the other hand, multiple busbars provide lower resistance and a shorter path for the electrons to travel resulting in higher performance. --------------------***--------------------

Higher-efficiency HVAC equipment and more effective computer control of how and when that equipment is used can substantially lower your HVAC costs. Even simple steps, such as reducing HVAC output on weekends and at night, can make a big difference in overall plant and office energy-use that can only add to a manufacturer’s competitiveness.
