Episode Description: Green Buildings – Green buildings come in all shapes and sizes. In this episode of EcoSense for Living, we visit 3 very different LEED certified spaces:
Philips Arena - This huge sports and entertainment venue houses thousands of fans nightly, while not using as much energy as you’d expect!
Arabia Mountain High School – Georgia’s 1st LEED certified high school not only is made up of green materials, but its green curriculum is turning today’s students into tomorrow’s environmental leaders!
New World Home - These green modular homes marry traditional architecture with innovative, energy efficient techniques. And the best part is that you’d never guess that you could pick these houses out of a catalogue!
Finally, we visit the exciting Solar Decathlon in Washington, DC. Sponsored by the US Department of Energy, teams from all around the world gather on the mall to build extraordinary solar-powered houses. We’ll tour the creative spaces of the top 3 teams and get their insider tricks to MAJOR energy efficiency.Back to EcoSense homepage.
