“Green Buildings for creating a Green environment” is what I would say. Generally, the term “Green Buildings” is understood in a wrong way. As in, the people have a wrong understanding about the term “Green Buildings”. Green Buildings does not just imply on creating huge lawns and making the building look green in colour.
It is all about making the environment green and create a healthy atmosphere inside the living space which also has an impact on the outside surroundings.
Vegetation, Landscaping is definitely a part of Green Building Design but that is not all which would make the building green.
In this article, we are going to discuss the goals of Green Buildings or rather I should say the “Principles of Green Buildings”.
If we are successful in achieving these principles, we will definitely be able to successfully design not just “A green Building” but also create a Green environment.
It is necessary to understand the relationship between Bio-climatic Architectural Design and the way in which the Wind energy is harnessed.
We have already discussed the use of Wind turbines for the generation of electricity. We will be discussing the mechanism of Wind turbines in detail.
Wind Turbine is a rotary devices which utilizes mechanical energy and converts it into electrical energy. Windmills that extract the energy from the wind and utilize the mechanical energy for cutting of lumber, pumping water etc have been used since ancient times.
Windmills came into picture in 200BC. They have first been used in Persia and then a better and practical version of the windmills has been observed in Sistan, a region between Afghanistan and Iran in the 7th century.
Later on, after the industrial revolution, the concept of using the wind power with the help of wind turbines to generate electricity was discovered.
If the mechanical energy is instead converted to electricity, the machine is called a wind generator, wind turbine, wind turbine generator (WTG), wind power unit (WPU), wind energy converter (WEC), or aerogenerator.
