Document Type: Original Article

Abstract

Increasing demand for energy and its consumption and environmental changes that were the product of the Industrial Revolution, especially in the second half of the 19th century, created an energy challenge for all countries, as the fossil fuel consumption has been accelerated around the world. The objective of the present paper is to present an appropriate solution for the current trend of the energy crisis, considering its status and based on a review of energy production and consumption statistics and the conditions in the world and the consequences of its consumption. According to valid statistics in the world, the architecture and urban development sector accounts for about 40% of the world''s energy consumption and it has a high share in the production of greenhouse gas. The results of the paper suggest that the use of commercial green walls reduces energy consumption in buildings and it is an effective step in the development of agricultural products as a new technology and a green revolution in production of agricultural crops in the building industry, which plays a key role in reducing environmental pollution, especially in industrial cities.
