This chapter presents the role of renewable energy techniques to design and develop a sustainable framework for green building. The first viewpoint is identified with the earlier structure and the low encapsulated energy building materials for the design and development of a framework for green building. The primary perspective is to manage energy protection using renewable energy techniques in the green building. Green building interchangeably can be used with the term's sustainable construction or green construction. So, durable construction means using environmentally responsible and resource-efficient procedures in development to be ensured of sustainability throughout the lifetime of the building. This chapter also presents the combination of renewable, energy-based technology for green building construction and sustainability with the economics of renewable energy.

Green Building

Two additional imperatives must be satisfied with the construction of a natural green building: the renewable of natural materials, alongside the measurable data and from the landscape to its adaptation of the architecture. According to original data the selection of the site must be made. Architectural forms must not use artificial color rather than take inspiration from nature. The material provided by the environment must be used in natural building techniques. The use of natural material is highly recommended as these materials replace synthetic products as their production consumes energy in huge quantity. The raw materials are covered under the term “natural materials” that can be used either accordingly to modern techniques or traditional craft methods. The construction standard refers to the expression “passive building” that can be accomplished using a different variety of materials used for construction. It can be interpreted as a green building construction which claims the climate of the interior is as comfortable as without the need for a conventional heating system in winter as it is summer. For obtaining low energy consumption, this is one of the conditions. The following requirements must be fulfilled to build a passive building: to capture passive solar energy building’s orientation; triple-glazed windows of high quality. Such as, by taking into consideration the direction of a structure and change its windows, to catch the passive solar heat, architects and promoters must keep in mind that energy consumption should be less than create their designs, enhance the aspect of sustainable development and daylight penetration improvement, which increases the productivity of employee without incurring additional cost of construction.
