Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

Sustainable buildings can be sexy....

For the longest time, discussion of green design and construction were considered very inside baseball; that is, limited to interested industry geeks already familiar with the concept. But the marriage of sustainability and architecture has become more than just a trendy buzz phrase for both the media and general public. Around the world, projects are showing not only how sustainable building practices can help a project’s bottom line but also how they can make an architectural splash.

  2. I really like Building Integrated PV (BIPV), solar panels as windows, doors and ceilings and so on, I think we're going to see much more of that as time goes on....
