In clear, jargon-free prose, Green Building Trends: Europe provides profiles of progress in the journey towards sustainability, describes the current regulatory and business climates, and predicts what the near future may bring. Jerry Yudelson also provides a primer on new technologies, systems, and regulatory approaches in Western Europe that can be adopted in North America, including building-integrated solar technologies, radiant heating and cooling systems, dynamic faÃ§ades that provide natural ventilation, innovative methods for combining climate control and water features in larger buildings, zero-netenergy homes built like Thermos bottles, and strict government timetables for achieving zero-carbon buildings./Green Building Trends: Europe is an essential resource for anyone interested in the latest developments in this rapidly growing field.
