Green Building Technology Guide: Emerging Technologies provides users with a comprehensive set of tools to understand, evaluate, design, and execute green building strategies.

Expert authors share clear and concise steps to achieve high-performance building solutions at multiple levels, from basic LEED projects, to advanced Zero Net Energy Buildings (ZNEB), exploring all aspects of green building design.

Materials, equipment, systems, methods, and resources are all broken down by CSI format and aligned with USGBC LEED categories, as well as Enterprise Green Communities criteria.

The book focuses on emerging green building technologies, discussing materials (plastics, shape-memory alloys, metallic foams, thin-film technology), building systems (magnetic systems and nanotechnology), and energy systems (gasification, anaerobic digestion, renewable ocean technology, and more).

Users will find valuable information on how to confidently incorporate these cutting-edge concepts into their designs and projects.
