The Renewable Energy Data Book for provides facts and figures on renewable energy deployment in the United States, with context of U.S. and global energy trends. Facts include renewable electricity capacity, generation, and capacity additions for U.S. and global electricity and energy as a whole, and for specific renewable electricity. The Efficient World Scenario (EWS) shows a world with 20% more people, 60% more building space and double the GDP, all for a marginal energy demand rise. The EWS also fully delivers the energy efficiency target of UN Sustainable Development Goal 7.   Good books on green building and construction are hard to find. With industry growth in building green, comprehensive guides to rethinking construction for energy efficiency and sustainability are helpful to anyone new to the field. In a recent article, Green Building Advisor’s Martin Holladay reviews four new books on green building. A building can’t be green if it isn’t energy efficient. The energy used by buildings is mostly generated by burning fossil fuels, which releases greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. No building should define itself as “green” unless it consumes less energy and generates fewer greenhouse gas emissions than average.

@article{osti_, title = {Energy-efficient buildings}, author = {Wagner, W.F. Jr.}, abstractNote = {A broad analysis of the strides made by architects, engineers, manufacturers, and building owners to reduce energy consumption in buildings is presented. Those changing cost equations, the changing priorities, and the growing body of design expertise that has . Energy efficient building design involves constructing or upgrading buildings that are able to get the most work out of the energy that is supplied to them by taking steps to reduce energy loss such as decreasing the loss of heat through the building envelope. Energy efficient homes, whether they are renovated to be more efficient or a built with energy efficiency in mind, . The Energy Efficiency in Buildings course demonstrates how to carry out energy saving measures in homes and buildings and make financial savings. Spaces on this course fill up quickly – it is therefore recommended to book as early as possible. Enquiry Form. First Name*: Last Name*: Your Email*. Energy efficient buildings (new constructions or renovated existing buildings) can be defined as buildings that are designed to provide a significant reduction of the energy need for heating and cooling, independently of the energy and of the equipments that will be chosen to heat or cool the building.
