Hi SBSE Folks:
I've been teaching a class on siting, sizing, specifying renewable energy systems for about 10 years. The books I've been using have become a bit dated (and they don't seem like they are going to be updated) and I was thinking of writing one because I can't find anything like what I want.

My questions:

  1.  Would you find it helpful to have a book that explains basic siting, sizing, and specifying of typical renewable energy systems? This could be used for a studio class (or a systems class) or for a building owner wanting to understand how and why to make their building more efficient and if it is a good candidate for renewables.
  2.  What experiences (good and bad) have you had with publishers (such as Wiley, McGraw Hill, etc.) and would you recommend one over another?

As always, thank you for your feedback and lively discussion! It is wonderful to have a world-wide community of people who are so enthusiastic about teaching and sharing about building science issues.
