Links for February 3rd through February 8th

These are my links for February 3rd through February 8th:

  • 500 Internal Server Error – 500 Internal Server Error
  • LEED EBOM vs. BREEAM In-Use (or Oranges vs. Carrots) « GreenBuildingManager – "As a property manager, I find In-Use quite appealing. I can set up a sustainable system, execute on it and get certificates proving that I’m doing everything within my control to be sustainable. Great for marketing, but I’m not so sure it achieves my aims. Does it add any value to my buildings? Am I missing an opportunity to make a difference?<br />
    <br />
    If EBOM certification is more difficult to achieve, it’s because it is only possible with a community effort. Convincing the owner to spend money and the tenants to alter their behavior are difficult – but when we are successful we maximize the impact on the environment and the value of the building."
  • 500 Internal Server Error – 500 Internal Server Error
  • House 2.0: The cost of comfort – Mark's mini rant at R4tF prompted some fantastic comments – worth reading them (much longer than the actual post): "At the other end of the spectrum, we have the Green Deal taxiing for take-off, looking hopelessly lightweight. A Green Deal retrofit (cost around £6,000) will save householder's very little energy: it will simply make their homes more comfortable."
