CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. — Delmar, part of Cengage Learning, has announced the availability of three new books for the green building industry. As part of its Green Destination series, the new titles cover all aspects of green building, from gaining certification, to codes, concepts, technologies, and alternative sources of energy.

“The new, cutting-edge technologies for today’s green building projects are rapidly becoming standard practice for tomorrow,” said Greg Clayton, vice president, Delmar. “In order for industry professionals to keep up with this trend, they’ll need to have a solid grasp on green building and the technologies, market forces, and governmental policies that drive it. We understand this need for current, environmentally-friendly green building information, and are actively working to produce more materials to support all aspects of this industry. These three new titles will help professionals to be informed and knowledgeable of current topics in certifications, alternative energy sources, and all other aspects of green building and compliance.”

Alternative Energy: Sources & Systems is said to be a comprehensive source for builders, technicians, energy industry professionals, or anyone wanting to learn more about these new sources of energy. The book covers such technologies as solar, wind, and geothermal energy production, with detailed illustrations and photographs to provide a visual reference.

Contractor’s Guide to LEED Certified Construction is a resource for contractors that focuses on specific construction-related Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) requirements. The book fully explains LEED standards, applies concepts to real-world construction situations, and offers advice on methods and materials.

Green Building: A Professional’s Guide to Concepts, Codes and Innovation is designed to provide a greater understanding of current design and building performance issues. Published in partnership with the International Code Council (ICC) and covering International Green Construction Code (IgCC) provisions, it includes explanations of how buildings and ecosystems can work together, the sustainability concerns inspiring current regulations, and relevant codes and standards. The book aims to give readers a better understanding of where the building industry is heading and how to stay compliant with current green practices and regulations.
