muscat-1

Aiming to rationalize energy consumption and utilize the renewal of solar and wind energy, the Sultanate of Oman is shifting towards the concept of green buildings by planning to build a center for green buildings under the Omani Engineers Society development.

According Khamis bin Salin al-Soli, Chairman of Oman Green Building Centre, the concept of green buildings is that it meets the needs for eco-friendly environments.

He added that green buildings will bring many positive impacts such as reducing the level of solid waste production to a minimum and ensure tranquility and peace of mind by circulating air and utilizing solar heating in the building.

Researchers have shown that 45% of buildings are responsible for the world’s energy usage, while 70% of water is produced and 50% of materials are consumed by the buildings. With more construction of green buildings in Oman, Khamis bin Salin al-Soli plans to reduce up to 35-50% of CO2 emissions.
