Positive Energy Buildings: Concepts, Challenges and Opportunities
This book investigates positive energy buildings (PEBs). It provides and describes them, explains why they are important in the fight against climate change and discusses how they might be implemented.
This book begins by contextualizing PEBs, discussing concepts, definitions and how they may be included by planning authorities in development plans. It then thoroughly explains PEBs and their impact on a climate-neutral economy. The book discusses technological, economic, societal, and regulatory challenges and opportunities in employing PEBs, before concluding with possible implementation scenarios.
This book is of use to researchers, practitioners, and policymakers interested in local and decentralized energy, as well as plans to achieve carbon neutrality.
