      Energy efficient building design involves constructing or upgrading buildings that are able to get the most work out of the energy that is supplied to them by taking steps to reduce energy loss such as decreasing the loss of heat through the building envelope. Energy efficient homes, whether they are renovated to be more efficient or a built with energy efficiency in mind, . The conceptual design phase of a building is the best time to integrate sustainable strategies. When these mechanisms are put into action at the very beginning of the construction phase, this reduces implementation costs as compared to when they are installed in subsequent stages of construction.. Evidently, energy-efficient design methods are an added value that benefits Cited by:

      Ultra-efficient home design combines state-of-the-art, energy-efficient construction, appliances, and lighting with commercially available renewable energy systems, such as solar water heating and solar taking advantage of local climate and site conditions, designers can incorporate passive solar heating and cooling and energy-efficient landscaping strategies.

Since energy is the number one contributor to global warming, an obvious way to mitigate climate change is to design low or no-energy use buildings. To do so means going back to basics and looking carefully at how the design of a building is optimized to the particular features of a specific site to minimize the potential of extreme energy use.The principles of green building: High performance, energy efficient Eco homes may include features like geothermal heating, wind power and solar panels, but these are not the defining features of green living.

They come in second, and some you can even do without. A green home starts with being well-designed, well-insulated, and if possible, has glazing oriented to the .Energy efficient buildings (new constructions or renovated existing buildings) can be defined as buildings that are designed to provide a significant reduction of the energy need for heating and cooling, independently of the energy and of the equipments .
