Alliance to research green buildings and cities

Business intelligence company Lux Research has forged an alliance with the Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities (HCGBC) to develop a database of green building innovations in a bid to enable smart choices about energy efficiency in buildings.

Noting that buildings are responsible for 70% of the global electricity consumption, the company notes that a lack of reliable information about available technologies is holding back adoption of clean technologies. To address this, Lux has announced a collaboration with HCGBC’s Professor Richard Freeman to include its recently launched Green Buildings Tracker, a database compliant with 19 major green building standards across 95 countries.

‘Understanding how innovative green building technologies can help mitigate challenges posed by rapid urbanisation will advance the global construction industry and inform prominent city policymakers,’ commented Dennis Philbin, CEO of Lux Research.
