This unique volume offers insights from renowned experts in energy efficient building from the world over, providing a multi-faceted overview of the state-of-the-art in energy efficient architecture.

  • Explains the best methods and materials to support energy efficient building
  • Features case studies by experts from a dozen countries, demonstrating how sustainable architecture can be achieved in varied climates and economies
