About this book

While Zero (fossil) Energy Development (ZED) is generally regarded as a positive innovation, in practice this option is not taken up or fully implemented. A planner, councillor, developer, housing association representative, architect, contractor, building component manufacturer and government officer would all have different reasons for not espousing ZED standards for their new-build projects, but the result would be the same. This book tackles the reasons why this happens, systematically dismantling the defence against its adoption. It explains the principles behind ZED fossil Energy Development, and provides a ZED toolkit of methods and case studies to enable construction professionals and policy makers to realize a ZED build as easily as a conventional scheme.
