The purpose of this project was to build a database of funding sources for sustainable construction projects, and to identify the barriers preventing the spread of this practice. A searchable database containing over 70 funding sources throughout Europe and North America was developed, and was used to find the funding necessary to install solar cells on a junior/secondary school in the London Borough of Merton. The database was expanded to include a website to aid its future development by Merton or their appointee.
