"Cleaner, Faster, Cheaper, Safer" -  James Russell's description of energy conservation in an age of Middle East turmoil and nuclear catastrophe.  His excellent piece in Bloomberg focuses on two projects that realize aggressive energy conservation savings in high design packages: Manitoba Hydro Place (diagram above, including massive solar chimney) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado.  Mr. Russell is singing our favorite tune and you can hear more from him at our upcoming June 8th conference, Speak Green, where he will moderate a panel and (if we are lucky) discuss his new book, The Agile City.
