It is with pleasure that we release Volume 3 of the Energy Efficiency Handbook.

If you think about it, energy efficiency is a concept that has challenged humanity for centuries. Perhaps it has been more often thought of as doing things more efficiently or easily. We discovered the wheel (really, it was hardly an invention!) to allow us to move stuff, and we figured out how to save our own energy on cold days by making fire ... And so it goes. Doing things better and better.

This handbook comprises the writing of some wonderful authorities and thinkers - challenging us to accept that we need to change, but also that we need to do what we do better. While it has not been possible to include every topic that we would have liked to, we have attempted to ensure that the hotter topics have been covered.
