About this book

Volume 1 presents strategies and solutions, offering the reader a solid platform for assessing environmental and economic concerns for housing projects, and offers guidance for implementing the most appropriate course of action in a variety of contexts.

'A very well written and timely book.' Get Sust! 'Sustainable Solar Housing (Volume 1) is a very well written and timely book, with sufficient validated results to avoid being dismissed as 'just another book on sustainable housing'...The book benefits from an impressive list of very knowledgeable contributors with a good European balance. Readers will be comforted by their reputations...[and] devising solutions based on climate is an excellent idea - especially in light of the consequences of global warming on more southerly latitudes and the possibility of cooler climates in Northern Europe if, (nay, when) the gulf stream shuts down.' Get Sust!, Issue 26, Feb 2007
