Abstract

This study aims to increase awareness of a new solution for reducing the carbon footprint of airports. The use of Smart Glass technology in airports and other architectural design choices across the world mitigates the use of fossil fuels to help combat the transfer of heat and cold in buildings while bringing in a natural source of lighting in the infrastructure of buildings. The instrumental role Smart Glass technology can play in reducing energy poverty worldwide will make a massive difference in sustainability measures. In some way or form, every human in the world resides inside buildings that continue to use fossil fuels to provide comfort for people; with Smart Glass technology, we can be the new tomorrow of sustainability.
