The author stresses the importance of adaptation and mitigation in anticipating the impact of climate change on the building services industry. He suggests that designers of energy efficient services in new and existing buildings must learn to adapt their designs to changing climate conditions and to select more efficient equipment with better control to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. He also proposes that they increase their use of renewable and clean energy sources to provide power for building service systems.
