Rethinking building materials to reduce the construction footprint

The built environment is reliant on energy-hungry materials. Iron & steel, glass, plastics, concrete and cement all require huge amounts of energy and resources to manufacture, and without finding alternative materials or new approaches, the construction sector’s efforts to reduce its emissions and carbon footprint will fail. This panel will ...

Understanding the Esco model

Understanding the Esco model

How well is the Esco (energy services company) business model understood by asset owners, operators, property managers and facility managers? How do they see the sector – is there a culture of energy management? Is there appetite, given lower tariffs vs. a long pay-back period? Is there trust for these ...

Energy and water use benchmarks for existing buildings

The RSB Dubai outlines its new energy and water rating scheme for the emirate's offices and residential buildings. Local benchmarks will be used to assess the performance of property, thus identifying efficiency levels of buildings, and encouraging retrofit projects and ultimately net zero property. Presented by: Elie Matar, Head of ...

Optimising offsite manufacturing for engineers

Optimising offsite manufacturing for engineers

The built environment accounts for approximately 25% of global CO2 emissions. Reaching net zero by 2050 will require buildings and construction industry to decarbonise three times faster over the next 30 years versus the previous 30. How will engineers contribute and collaborate to succeed? This session focuses on Design for ...

Easy wins to reduce embodied carbon

For a new building that is fully compliant with building codes, half of its carbon emissions are likely to be from embodied carbon. Today, about 40% of global energy rated emissions are due to buildings and construction, making the embodied element about 20%. As populations rise and the trend of ...

Real application and impact of carbon calculators

There is a balance between embodied carbon and operational carbon, with both emissions types having similar impacts today. Where there is a high contribution of renewable energy or in countries where there is a net zero strategy, when predictive analysis is done for a building's lifecycle that looks 20-30 years ...
