Introducing Renewable Energy for Architects and Designers

Introducing Renewable Energy has been written as an introduction into renewable energy sources for electricity production. Once you've read this book, you will be able to evaluate your site and your design to see if it is suitable for renewable energy production, and if so, whether solar, wind or hydro-power offers you the best solutions. It will also allow you to calculate the power potential available at your site before calling in the experts to create a detailed design.

The book also provides you with information around payback for installing renewable energy, plus grant information and options around having renewable energy systsems installed free of charge in return for sharing the benefits with the company that installs the system for you.

Whilst I am British, I have travelled and worked all around the world, including in the United States of America, Canada, India, Italy, France and currently in Sweden. Consequently, I have ensured that the information in this book is relevant, wherever you live. All measurements are shown in both metric and imperial measurements, and where there is country-specific information, whether it is for the United Kingdom, the United States or elsewhere, this is clearly marked as such.
