The world, because of the mass extinction
of the natural species, will be doomed
one day. Climate change and global
warming are the prime suspects for the
ongoing icecaps melting, sea levels rising,
and biodiversity abolishment. Because
of losing balance in the ecosystem, a
listed ancient flora and fauna have
already become extinct from this planet,
and humans are the promoter for this
devastating picture.
But if people will realize the upcoming
consequential global negative impact and
start to raise the question of how can they
sustain for the rest of the 21st century,
most societies, industries, and business
policies must have to shift towards green
energy with zero carbon emission and
re-establish the ecosystem. This paper
is about merging biodiversity with solar
panel parks, which is an initiative from
IKEA Industry. Create recreation facilities
so that this message can be delivered to
general people and make them conscious
is another promotion that we added in here.
But the pressing question is: can we make
this happen or not?
The theory responds it is affirmative to
incorporate biodiversity into solar panel
parks by adding landscape parks in the
surroundings. It is also possible to include
local flora and fauna in the solar panel
parks. In this thesis, the included design illustrations and visualizations show the
possibilities of having them together.
Briefly, the world needs to have as many
solar panel parks as possible within 2030
to achieve sustainable development goals,
and it is goal seven that tells renewable
energy may perform a dual function:
firstly, harness temperature or sea-level
rise and secondly, reset biodiversity,
