Abstract:

'A very well written and timely book.' Get Sust! This far-reaching and authoritative two-volume set examines a range of potential solutions for low-energy building design considering different strategies (energy conservation and renewable energy) and technologies (relating to the building envelope ventilation heat delivery heat production heat storage electricity and control). Energy and life-cycle impacts are considered as crucial factors including passive and active solar use daylighting and high efficiency conventional heat production. Each volume assesses the potential of these options in.
