The third and latest edition of “ASHRAE GreenGuide: The Design, Construction and Operation of Sustainable Buildings” is available in electronic-book (eBook) format for use on the Apple iPad.

The eBook includes embedded links to other sections of the book and to graphics and relevant Web pages.

“We want people to have access to ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) guidance wherever they are, without having to carry around a hardback book,” Sheila Hayter, chair of the organization’s Publishing and Education Council, said. “With the release of 'GreenGuide' eBook, detailed information on the design of high-performance buildings is as close as one keeps their iPad.”

The "GreenGuide" eBook is available as a download in Apple’s iBooks store for $39.99 and requires the iBooks app.
