Resources in energy savings through architecture:

 

 SOUTHFACE.org. They have a lot of resources as well as learning opportunities. They even have some free online lessons in many aspects of green building.

 Factsheets and Technical Bulletins Page.

 Energy Design Resources.

 


Below, let's collect information on the cities that take initiatives about decreasing GHG emissions, as inspiring examples what can be done. Please organize them by region, so we can find relevant examples for whatever area we are interested in.

 

Middle East

  • Masdar City. Masdar City will be the world’s first zero-carbon, zero-waste, car-free city, meeting or exceeding a set of stringent sustainability goals established under the “One Planet Livingâ„¢” programme established by WWF and environmental consultancy BioRegional.

 

Europe

  • Ashton Hayes, England -- Going Carbon Neutral Project: Aiming to be England's first carbon neutral village
  • Växjö, Sweden"Fossil Fuel Free Växjö"
  • Kassel, Germany. This is a hoax! They said that they would get 100% renewable electricity from Norway, but the way it works is that the electricity-provider in Germany pays a fee to the Norwegian hydropower provider. Kassel can then say that they offer renewables, whereas Norway cannot call its electricity renewable any more. It's just a switch of titles, not an increase in renewables. A good lesson to do some research in where the renewables come from, and what happens with it.

By 2030, about half of the buildings in America will have been built after 2000. This statistic, courtesy of Professor Arthur C. Nelson's report for the Brookings Institution, means that over the next 25 years, we will be responsible for re-creating half the volume of our built environment.
