Green Buildings with Sustainable Energy
Sustainable energy systems is a crucial designing factor for environmentally responsible and resource efficient buildings.
Unlike traditional energy systems which highly rely on fossil fuel, green buildings utilize renewable energy sources or high efficient energy systems--or both--to provide environmental friendly, low-carbon waste energy. A new Handbook of Energy Systems in Green Buildings provides a comprehensive summary on the energy systems used in green buildings, with a particular focus on solar energy, the most common renewable energy source applied in this field. Discussed in detail are: the most updated concepts, designs, technologies developed and implemented in heat pumps, cooling systems, power systems, and energy storage. Additionally, different cases about green energy systems implemented in global are included. Structured and easy to read, the book is accessible to both graduate students and professionals in diverse scientific and engineering communities.
