Green Buildings Are The Need Of The Hour?

There is little doubt that China is a country coming into its own. With a massive population, the country is starting to wake up and grow economically. Of course, it needs power to make that happen.

As an investor, how can I help sustain the earth? I call it sustainable investing. It is simply investing in companies whose products or services promote the sustainability of the planet. Companies providing technology for renewable energy is a perfect example. In particular, I will talk about solar companies in this post.

If we are to look at the world’s consumption on oil based products you can clearly see that it rises each day. One clear example for this is the traffic we see on our roads. And the production and reserves for this does not really grow in an instant. If we really have to seek a hydropower source it should be the one that comes from a natural flowing stream of energy. And there’s nothing more available energy in the world than green energy.

The most common ways of attaining a life off the grid is by the use of solar panels, hydropower and wind turbines or even good, old-fashioned wind mills. These items are still expensive to buy and very expensive to have installed. A recent study in the UK estimated that it would take 10 years to recoup the investment of a professional installation of energy-making devices.

Private developers-Private developers who want to make a good investment can also capitalize off biomass. When you pick the right setting, you can build a fully functional biomass power plant. Once it’s all completed, you sell it to someone else who is in the business of running them. You make a profit. They get the plant they wanted. Everyone stands to gain.

Look at the labels on your appliances. This will help you understand where your usage is going and why? It will also identify areas or appliances where you can make savings by better use of the appliances.

Attic insulation should be up to 200mm thick. It is laid between ceiling joists and over them. Pink glass sheets with paper vapor barrier, come in rolls, and can be used with little mess. Plastic beads, blown in glass wool or sprayed on foam insulation can be used. Heat rises, so attic insulation will stop the heat from being wasted. Lack of attic insulation is one of the biggest energy wasters. It doesn’t make much sense to pay huge heat bills for energy that is going through the roof.
