Radiant heating and cooling systems and so-called “active façades” are among the green building technologies widely used in Europe that have the most promise for the U.S. buildings market, according to a recent report from the Mechanical Contractors Education and Research Foundation.

Authored by green building consultant Yudelson Associates, Tucson, Ariz., the 50-page report details a number of European innovations that American architects, engineers, and contractors can use to design and develop high-performance green buildings at little or no added cost, including chilled beams, dynamic façades, and advanced building controls.
