Energy audits have multiple goals including reducing energy consumption, managing costs and environmental impact. Improving the energy performance of existing buildings through energy retrofit measures is a great opportunity for developing sustainability in our structures and developing a green building economy. Green Energy Audit of Buildings considers this opportunity with a new and modern interpretation of the classic methodologies.
This comprehensive guide to green energy audits integrates energy audit and LEEDÂ®methodologies to focus on energy and environment as strategic elements. In addition to these methodologies,Green Energy Audit of Buildings includes 45 check-list for field surveys and 97 technical sheets of possible energy retrofit actions that can be applied to existing real-world cases.
Covering both the technical and economical points of view, Green Energy Audit of Buildings provides a comprehensive understanding and method for analyzing buildings and facilities in order to promote sustainability. Engineers, architects, energy assessors and mangers in charge of building maintenance will all find this a key reference as well as lecturers, students and researchers looking to develop their understanding of sustainable buildings.
Blueprints is a series that provides a variety of graded texts to meet the different learning levels within your classroom.
Catalysis is at the heart of modern, environmentally friendly technologies, and is central to efficient energy production, conversion and utilization. Design and synthesis of catalysts to control catalytic activity and selectivity has been a scientific challenge for those working to secure our energy future. Because catalysis involves molecular transformations, the nanostructure of a catalyst and how it interacts with reactant molecules, transition states and intermediates can significantly influence its properties. This volume, from the 2009 MRS Fall Meeting in Boston, brings together experts in heterogeneous catalysis, catalytic energy production and conversions, green processing, nanomaterials, and nanodevices, for cross-fertilizations among these fields. Research presented on photocatalysts and electrocatalysts is especially noteworthy. State-of-the-art fabrication and integration methods for catalysts in these emerging applications are featured.
