This reference combines the two main areas related to sustainable buildings-energy efficiency and renewable energy technology-and covers topics such as general energy principles, energy conservation in buildings, industrial and transportation systems, and renewable energy technology. It also includes extensive information on landfills, transportation, and fuel cells. This timely handbook serves as the first source for up-to-date information on energy conservation and renewable energy technologies."@en
