Buildings across the world consume a significant amount of energy which is equivalent to one third of total primary energy resources available. This has led to lots of challenges with regard to supplies of energy, energy resources quick depletion, increase in building service demands, improvised comfort lifestyle along with time increase spend in builds; this all has increased the energy consumption. Even the global sustainability is also pushing the implementation of green buildings in the real world. Researchers and scientists have been working on this issue for a very long time, but still the issue is prevalent. The aim of this chapter is to present comprehensive and significant research conducted to date with regard to green buildings. The chapter provides in-depth analysis of design technologies (i.e., passive and active technologies) that lay a strong foundation for green building. The chapter also highlights the smart automation technologies which help in energy conservation along with various performance metrics.
