ABSTRACT

With the increase in population there have been an aggressive increment in demand for energy but the continuous exploitation of conventional sources of energy have led to global warming and its other harmful effects. The light transmitting concrete is one such green building material which uses sunlight as its source for illumination. The light transmitting concrete is a visually appealing material. Thus while saving energy it also looks beautiful and enhances the aesthetics of area. In this paper the usage and advantages, the light transmitting concrete brings in the field of smart construction by reducing the power consumption is discussed, as being one of the modern and major component of green buildings and its importance as a revolutionary element in matching the standard of green building. It also serves the purpose of good aesthetical view of the building which earlier needed much make-over despite its versatility and popularity.
