The discovery of fire is one of the defining moments in the history of mankind. A catalyst that sparked thousands of years of evolution. Everything the human race has achieved thus far stems back to that moment.

 

And yet, for all the good, it has become a more destructive force than the early Homo erectus could ever have imagined.

 

In the past few centuries, it has been used as a tool for burning the planet’s natural resources to fuel our development at a relentless rate. It’s a mark of our ambition and the success we can achieve as a species, but the planet is a privilege that we have allowed ourselves to overstretch.

 

We currently supply 86% of our energy requirements with fossil fuels: 36% oil, 27% coal and 23% gas. The situation has become untenable, but there is hope for the future and there are sustainable alternatives in place.

 

The next step is to implement them. This means educating the masses and demonstrating that in saving nature, we don’t have to compromise our lifestyles.

 

One area where we can truly make a lasting impact is in our buildings: the practices by which we construct them, but even more so how they operate in the long term. The EU Commission states that buildings are responsible for 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2; emissions in the EU*. Our reliance on fossil fuels in heating our buildings in unnecessary, and it’s time we switched to greener, renewable energy sources.
