Buildings Hold the Key Answers to Combat Climate Change

This research service discusses the role of the buildings industry in fighting climate change in Asia-Pacific. Climate change is believed to cause the severe weather occurrences that cause disruptions and losses to socio-economic activities. Affected industries include the buildings industry. Buildings consume a considerable amount of electricity that is largely generated from fossil fuel. Many countries are already striving to increase their dependence on renewable energy and at the same time promote the use of energy-efficient building fittings and equipment, and energy management solutions. Various efforts and initiatives are being introduced by the buildings industry with the aim to reduce the dependency on fossil fuel for electricity generation.

Executive Summary—Key Takeaways
1 The key focus of the buildings industry will be energy efficiency. High-profile buildings will need to be green and energy efficient in the long term and be able to withstand severe weather conditions.
2 Property developers are already embracing green features in their property development projects. Competitors in the property development and building construction market are focusing on sustainable green buildings.
3 With the assumption that electricity prices remain constant, consumers’ expenditure on electricity will rise and their bills are likely to be aggravated by the higher consumption due to the effects of climate change.
4 Asia-Pacific shows various levels of development in the greening of the buildings industry. China and India hold promise due to their sheer market size, but Singapore presents solid opportunities due to its green buildings ambitions.
5 The key impact of climate change on the buildings industry is higher net consumption of electricity. It is expected to be % higher than consumption under normal circumstances. This is due to higher cooling and heating loads required for climate change adaptation.
