23 January 2013 — Jerry Yudelson and Ulf Meyer have published The World’s Greenest Buildings – Promise Versus Performance in Sustainable Design.

The book is the first opportunity to compare building performance data worldwide from the highest-rated large green buildings of the past 10 years, using actual energy and water operating data from 57 projects in 18 countries.

It offers architects, engineers and project developers a new way to understand how high-performance buildings can be designed and constructed.

The book includes a recipe for delivering successful high performance green building projects, an overview of green building rating systems, practical examples of best practices for achieving high-performance outcomes in large new nonresidential buildings, interviews with architects, engineers, building owners and building science professionals, a complete guide to world-class green building performance outcomes for new buildings and case studies.
