A guide written by the Oxford Institute for Sustainable Development.

The guide is designed to provide an overall strategy to include energy efficiency through various stages of planning and using a building.

The guide is divided into three broad sections.
• The first section deals with energy use in colleges and provides a general evaluation of where energy is used, and what are its cost implications.
• The second section explores design ideas to reduce energy use in buildings including building fabric, services and on-site energy generation technologies.
• The final section on operation and maintenance is targeted at building managers and explains various technologies associated with optimal energy consumption during use.

It is a basic guide and should be used with the sources of further information provided.
