This book represents our motivation for our project. This book informs our approach to sustainable learning and a sustainable community.
Our sustainable future demands the increased use of green technologies, engineering design for the environment, and adoption of sustainable business practices. The demand, ability, and technology to design and construct totally-green standalone communities is present today, and, in certain settings, the start-up cost is both justified and warranted. Herein, we present cost, performance, and general information on the latest green technologies in energy generation, energy storage, and zero-waste systems; this information is combined with a proposal for a no-sacrifice, technically-advanced, “totally-green” stand-alone community achievable today with Greenway College.
