This book introduces the causes of climate change that is presently being experienced by mankind. The reasons behind global warming as an effect of major greenhouse gas emissions and how world energy consumption contributes towards climate change are discussed. This book continues to explain how green technology can contribute towards the mitigation of greenhouse gases. Sustainable buildings in particular provide some solutions which are also presented in the book. The design of buildings which integrate sustainable technologies as a whole, create a positive impact on the environment. This book also presents the initiatives, policies as well as recent developments in terms of green technology that have been introduced by the Malaysian government in its effort to reduce the impact of energy use on the environment. The final part of the book discusses the current research and development in sustainable energy technologies applied to buildings which encompasses fundamental studies leading to design, systems, processes and new materials, particularly at Universiti Teknologi MARA.
