Carbon neutral buildings will be in high demand in the next 10-15 years due to the fact that large Russian and international companies set goals to achieve carbon neutrality in various periods from 2025 to 2060.
There is a LEED Carbon Zero certification program that certifies carbon neutral buildings.
To do this, the building must pass the basic LEED certification and prove its carbon neutrality during the 1st year of operation by:
– Use of renewable energy sources
-Compensation of greenhouse gas emissions (offsetting)
– Transfer of building workers to alternative transport and compensation of emissions from the use of transport
2. Use active recuperation in supply and exhaust ventilation systems based on rotary heat exchangers and built-in heat pumps.
3. Use solar panels built into the facade of the building on the south side of the facades to generate electricity for the building.
