To those familiar with the popular Haynes range of car maintenance manuals, “Eco House Manual” by Nigel Griffiths will be both familiar and shocking. Gone are the rough pages with black and white photos of assembly activities and car parts, and in its place are glossy pages and colour illustrations.
In the same vein, this book moves on from the step-by-step guide to installing eco-technologies into your house. It takes a more wide-ranging view at all of the varied possibilities that a homeowner or developer can take to upgrade a dwelling to make it more energy sustainable. Read the rest of this entry »

Welcome to a new environmental technology blog.
EnviroTechGuru is here to guide you through the world of Renewable Energy, and the Technology and Engineering that makes it possible.
EnviroTechGuru will cover all of the major topics that all of us will have to face in the next few years as we look at different ways of harnessing the energy of Planet Earth in a more sustainable way.
Way back in the past, when I did an A-level in physics, and I was told that all of the atomic energy contained in a litre of water could power mankind for a year. To a geeky child of science, facts like that have inspired me and given me a vision that we can have a modern lifestyle based on the bedrock of alternative and more efficient energy systems.
Now whether or not the exact calculation of the atomic power contained in water is correct or not, the fact is that even if we could harness even a small fraction of the energy that is collected on and generated by this planet.
But before we run, we need to be able to walk. EnviroTechGuru will talk about Solar Energy, Wind Power, Ground Heat Pumps and all of those small practical things that we can all do to help our own little corner of our community.
Read on to discover more about modern energy and what you can do to make your lifestyle more sustainable.
