Green Building A to Z: Understanding the Language of Green Building by Jerry Yudelson

Green building is the fastest-growing trend to hit since the Internet, bringing with it an enormous range of new products, systems, and technologies. Green Building A to Z is an informative, technically accurate, and highly visual guide to green building, for both decision-makers and interested citizens. It begins with an introduction to the importance of green buildings and a brief history of the green building movement, outlines the benefits and costs of green buildings, and shows how you can influence the spread of green buildings. The book touches on key issues, such as enhancing water conservation, reducing energy use, and creating a conservation economy.

The book examines all aspects of green buildings, including:

  • Architecture 2030
  • Locally sourced materials
  • Natural ventilation
  • Solar energy
  • Zero-net-energy buildings
