This manual provides a handy, straightforward summary of energy efficient building use. It assumes no prior knowledge of the subject. It looks at building fabric as well as building services. It provides background on building regulations, energy audits, how to calculate the cost effectiveness of new measures and looks at the latest 'green' issues and government tax policies. Why should I buy this book? It summarises the essentials, rather than dealing with complex theory. It is aimed at busy managers. Chapters include: energy efficient buildings; building design - passive environmental controls; building design - active environmental controls; life cycle costing and net saving; conducting energy audits; the economics of 'green' building; useful addresses.
