Practical, easy to use, and heavily illustrated, the Energy Efficiency Manual is designed for everyone interested in energy conservation and environmental protection.
Engineers, architects, contractors, and developers use it to design efficient new buildings and plants, and to upgrade existing facilities.
Handbook of Energy Efficiency in Buildings: A Life Cycle Approach offers a comprehensive and in-depth coverage of the subject with a further focus on the Life Cycle. The editors, renowned academics, invited a diverse group of researchers to develop original chapters for the book and managed to well integrate all contributions in a consistent volume.
The most lucrative way for commercial and industrial businesses to take advantage of lower energy costs is by leveraging energy consultants for a custom savings assessment. Whether your business is located in a state that offers energy choice, or whether you are just interested in uncovering hidden savings, consider partnering with a qualified.
The first installment of a three-part series, this Guide presents the business case for energy efficiency to building owners and managers.
It provides the rationale for making economic decisions to improve and sustain energy efficiency in existing buildings.5/5(1). Below is information about the student activity/lesson plan from your search.
