GREEN SOLAR CITIES. Peder Vejsig Pedersen et al. Earthscan, Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2015. 330 pp. with 482 ills. (459 col.). 25 x 19 cm. LC 2014-21037 ISBN 9780415731195 In English.
Publisher's description: The Green Solar Cities, EU-Concerto project focuses on the practical large scale implementation of solar energy technologies in combination with new build and retrofit low energy building in the cities of Copenhagen, with its city part Valby, in Denmark and Salzburg in Austria. This book aims to influence decision makers in European cities towards a similar approach to the Green Solar Cities project, in close cooperation with leading building component suppliers, energy companies and engaged builders also working with local city officials. This book will benefit those in a situation where many cities aim at a "Smart City" development, but without clear policies of how to achieve that in practice. In Denmark there are similar policies, with an overall aim to be CO2 neutral by year 2025 in the city of Copenhagen. However, there is still a lack of understanding concerning, how solar energy as the world's number one energy source can play a major role here and how this can be combined with energy efficiency policies, use of district heating and combined heat and power. The general aim is to introduce the international "Active House" standard and work on "Active Roofs" of the future.
