New Book Offers Environmentally Responsible Energy Solutions That Won't Break The Bank
Home owners, building managers, real estate developers, university and campus facility maintenance personnel, employees, and anyone else with an interest in helping the environment will find tremendous value in the over 30 years of energy management experience distilled in the volume. Robust enough to enlighten an HVAC specialist or facility manager, Driver's clear and comprehensible writing will inspire and instruct homeowners and other non-specialists.
While "building commissioning"
"My motivation to write this book was to educate people responsibly in charge of building operations—from a single-family home to a sprawling campus, and anywhere in between—with the knowledge required to reduce emissions, at the same time saving them money," says Driver.
The content of A Sustainable Approach to Building Commissioning was validated through the deployment of seven case studies. "The results have demonstrated an average return on investment of 62% with a 75% internal rate of return, resulting in an 18-month simple payback," explains Driver. The case studies also demonstrated environmental benefits averaging 1,009 metric tons of carbon emissions avoided annually.
The book provides readers a way to create their own roadmap to sustainability for the buildings under their care, allowing them to "think globally, and act locally" in a meaningful, impactful, and financially savvy way.
A Sustainable Approach to Building Commissioning is published in ebook format by eBookIt.com, and is now available from popular online retailers.
