SUMMARY

Every aspect of our contemporary society runs on cheap fossil fuel; from agriculture and food production to transport and buildings. This stockpile of energy, left intact by past civilisations, is being squandered. And fossil fuels are not the only resources being consumed at unsustainable levels - if everyone in the world lived like the average UK resident we would need three planets to support global consumption. The problems caused by over-consumption are not just environmental. Millions worldwide are living in fear and squalor as a direct result of climate change. For every person on the planet who chooses a high carbon lifestyle, ten others will suffer. Though few now doubt the severity of the problems faced by humanity there is still resistance from businesses, developers, planners, architects and government when it comes to making the step changes necessary to make our lifestyles sustainable. Based on the experience gained from their involvement in the pioneering Beddington Zero Energy Development (or BedZED) in London, and subsequent innovative schemes, The ZEDbook authors present a bold, coherent and refreshing vision of a low carbon future. In three comprehensive sections, The ZEDbook leads the reader from basic ZEDliving principles through building physics and architectural design details to a carefully selected array of informative case studies. The ZEDbook is a must-have purchase for anyone wanting to make communities and the built environment more sustainable.Dunster, Bill is the author of 'From a to Zed Realising Zero Fossil Energy Developments', published 2007 under ISBN 9780415391993 and ISBN 0415391997.
