Efficient Consumption

Designers consider alternative forms of energy for the sake of cost

Implications - As consumers become more conscious of their consumption, they increasingly consider certification when it comes to purchasing a home. Passively powered or energy-neutral residences are not only more socially responsible; they are also more cost-effective, and it is the reduced expenditure that is driving consumer interest in both clean energy services and eco design. The widespread adoption of new techniques in energy efficiency speak to the rising cost of living and maintenance.
