It discusses in detail, the case study of Gurgaon-a satellite town of Delhi and one of India's fastest growing urban centers, and proposes an approach based on policy strands that should be applied in tandem with good practices and regularity controls. It also includes a set of real-time case studies from Spain and the UK with a focus on issues, gaps and barriers to policy implementation, pricing policy packages and energy services.

The second volume targets practitioners and focuses on the process of green architecture by combining concepts and technologies with best practices for each integral design component. It serves as a base for assessing building performance and meeting sustainability goals through appropriate strategies.A must-have for architects, designers, urban planners, engineers, and students, it provides thorough insights into the context, techniques, and benefits of sustainable building design.
