Green Buildings and Star Ratings
The QUT Science and Engineering Centre (SEC) is a five star rated Green Star Building.
What do five stars mean?
The Green Star system awards points to buildings based on their as well as other factors.
A five star building must have on-site energy generation, which can include renewable energy sources such as wind, solar power, and geothermal energy.
The ECOS Project provides visitors to the SEC Building, a dynamic visualisation that allows them to experiment with the variables of such a tri-generational system across multiple climates… as the external conditions are the most influential, determining the actual effectiveness of the 5 star system.
