What If Buildings Created Energy Instead of Consuming It? | Ksenia Petrichenko | TED
Buildings are bad news for the climate — but they don’t have to be. While our structures are currently responsible for a third of global energy consumption and emissions, a future where they create more energy than they produce is possible. Energy policy analyst Ksenia Petrichenko has a three-tiered strategy for thinking differently about buildings, transforming them from passive users to active players in the energy system and bringing us closer to our climate targets.
