The World’s Greenest Buildings:
Promise vs. Performance in Sustainable Design
Jerry’s new book (published January 2013) provides the very first large-scale study comparing building performance data worldwide from the highest-rated large green buildings of the past 10 years, using actual energy and water operating data from 57 projects in 18 countries. It offers architects, engineers and project developers a new way to understand how high-performance buildings can be designed and constructed.
Advances in water technology used to reduce building water consumption offer new business opportunities for selling packaged graywater, blackwater and rainwater reclaim systems, technologies and management/monitoring systems to building owners, especially those committed to green building projects. In this presentation, Jerry Yudelson, the most published author chronicling the green building movement worldwide, will profile some of these opportunities for corporate investment and entrepreneurial potential.
Jerry has developed a series of videos describing the danger of upcoming water wars throughout the world, and showing you what you can do with personal water conservation actions through sustainable green building design.
In this free download, green building and sustainability consultant, Jerry Yudelson makes the case that the restoration of older buildings using established green building practices offers a simple, yet extremely practical solution to an important environment problem: What’s the right approach to older buildings?
Jerry’s new article, “Analyzing the Business Case for Net Zero Buildings,” takes this emerging trend in green building design and provides a clear rationale for why going to net-zero buildings makes good business sense. This is taken from Building Design & Construction magazine’s 2011 White Paper, Zero and Net-Zero Energy Buildings and Homes, published in April 2011.
